Messy fun with pearlescent pan pastels and stamps .... heaven!

As would appear to be the way recently, I am a little late (by 48 hours) posting my Pan Pastel Challenges DT project. I do, sort of, have an excuse ... I was away at the weekend and Mr Blogger and I, do not seem to be able to always arrange for a schedule post. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it ...

The challenge this fortnight is "Anything Goes" and I decided to crack open my pearlescent pan pastels and PCB stamps to create a mini plaque made from stampbord ...

I have used one of the ATC sized peices of stampboard for my plaque covering the background with pearlescent yellow, pearlescent yellow, soft gold metallic and orange pan pastels. Next using my  Premium Craft brand roses and postcard stamp sets, I have added further detail to the background. I then triple embossed the background using Cosmic Shimmer detail clear powder.

Next I began adding further detail using Tim Holtz tissue tape and rub on sentiments from 7 Gypsies.

I then stamped the butterfly on to black card with Perfect medium and then coloured with soft gold metallic pan pastel, cutting the image out and layering on top of the tissue tape.

Along the bottom of the tile, I added some yummy black lace and using a metal frame from 7 Gypsies, framed one of the words on the tissue tape. I colour tinted a paper flower with soft gold metallic pan pastel and layered some ribbon roses on top , As a finishing touch I added some flower sequins which were coloured gold (using Perfect medium and soft gold metallic pan pastel).

I punched 2 holes at the top and threaded some gold ribbon to act as my hanger. This is one of the pieces I made for the Create and Craft show tomorrow (Wednesday 22nd April) at 10am, so if you're free, tune in for some pan pastel, stampbord and inky fun!

Right better get this added to the challenge blog now and see if anyone noticed I was a little late,

Beautiful Lou.
I've been using stampbord for years, its a great product especially for smaller pieces as they are lighter than some other products.
I love the stamping and additional layers, you know I love layers lol
