Good morning my lovelies, I hope you are all enjoying your weekend, challenges have started up again over at the PanPastel Challenge Blog and it’s the first of 2012, the theme for this weeks challenge is Anything Goes and you can use any medium on your entries so everyone can join in. The prize is a fantastic PanPastel trial kit from our sponsor Your Creativity Store (colours may vary)
Here is what I have made for this week,
Next I added colour to them both using sofft tools sponge and PanPastels (using a combination of Red Iron Oxide, Chromium Oxide Green, Burnt Sienna and White). When I was happy with the colours that I had sponged on I sprayed with fixer and then before the fixer dried I sprinkled on more white PanPastel holding the pan above the card and using a soft brush to sprinkle tiny bits of white and then I sprayed with fixer again.
Next I chose a portion of the cogs on the black card and cut them out using a craft knife (keeping the rest to one side for later) and then cut the white piece to 7.5″x7.5″ rounding the corners (and keeping the left over for later).
I then stuck the white piece in to place on the card and then stuck the piece that I cut out with the craft knife over the top at angle so that it was overlapping the edges of the card.
Next I took the remaining pieces of card and a small piece of white card and cut out the shapes for my greeting using Spellbinders Nestabilities, I then stamped my greeting using a Lili Of The Valley sentiment stamp and layered them up and stuck them in to place on the card.
Next I moved on to embellishing my card, the little metal cogs on this card are actually silver metal ones that I got a massive box of from a local hardware store for about £2.99, I have then coloured them using perfect medium, PanPastels and a fixative spray (this was very messy though, I ended up covered in Red Iron Oxide lol and if you are going to try this use an old perfect medium pad as you get colour everywhere).
I stuck these in to place on my card using collall glue gel and then finally added two time shaker bubbles from I Kan’dee to finish.
Thanks for reading this post, as always I love to read your comments and I do hope you will come along to the PanPastel Challenge Blog and join in as I love to see all of your gorgeous creations.
