Something Girly at PanPastel UK

Another week has passed and we have a new theme at PanPastel UK, we want to see something girly so get out those girly bits and pieces and show us what you create.

I chose a beautiful stamp from Crafty Individuals and used PanPastels for the background and Graph'It markers to shade her in.
Pans used - Magenta Shade, Burnt Sienna Tint, Titanium White
Graph'It Markers - Camellia, Light Caramel, Mocha, Pink grey, Steel and the blender.

I found a fabulous way to create a shimmery PP background by scraping a little of the pans onto my craft mat and mixing it with Biscotto Perfect Pearls mist, then I dipped and dried my tag several times to get the effect I wanted. I sprayed it with colourless fixative before moving on.

I stamped some text around the card using archival inks before stamping the main image, leaving space for her in the middle.

Because the pans had left a residue on the background the markers gave a chalky effect to the dress but still blended brilliantly.

Some lace, ribbon, music paper, die-cut lock, flower, pearls, mini tag & heart finish it off.

Hope you have a wonderful Sunday.

Swirls at FSC

I wanted a girly card for my DiL's birthday and came up with this. 

Pretty papers, the new Tim Holtz Cameo die, a chipboard dress form and other feminine pieces came together in a shabby vintage card.

I used the text stamp from the Tim Holtz Papillon set over white acrylic paint on the dress form and another of his stamps to create the little swirls on the cameo background, these I painted in with a Vintage Photo Distress Marker. There are also swirls printed on the pink backing paper as well.

We would love to see your swirl projects for the next fortnight at Fashionable Stamping Challenges, so please do pop over and while you are there have a look at all the other fabulous inspiration from my DT sisters.

Have a great Sunday and thanks for visiting my post.
