Glitter Beads Stamped Flower Card - Panpastel Challenge 5

The theme this week on the Panpastel UK Blog Challenge is 'Glitter and Glitz'. I struggled a bit as I couldn't find any of my 50's toppers with glitzy ladies on it, yes my craft corner is like Narnia...never ending, ha ha !

So this huge Stampin' Up stamp came to the rescue and I also used the dotted one to make a fun and glitzy background. The ribbon was a good match I thought.

If you don't know what Panpastels are, where have you been ? I used three shades to colour the flower and used a fixative so the colours stayed put.

I hope you can join the challenge you have up to Sunday to have fun creating something with glitter & glitz.

Flower Power Card - Panpastel Challenge 4

So pleased how this card turned out, I had this idea brewing in my head and I knew I could use my old trusted Xyron Personal Cutter (the fisher price of die-cutting machines) and cut the petals using some leftovers paper and brown packing kraft paper.

I urge you to visit the Panpastel UK blog challenge as you can see all the other wonderful creations of my DT panpastel mates. Incidentallly if you wish to partake using these lovely pastels just get your browser to this UK retailer : Your Creativity Store .

I used the panpastel to create the shadow on the edge of the card and the petals to give them dimension. I find pastels easier to use than ink funnily enough so I'm totally sold for shading. You need to use fixative though as it's very pigment rich and I tend to be a mucky crafter so, a quick spray will avoid happy accidents :)

My 'New Beginnings' London Box - Panpastel Challenge #2

New Beginnings indeed, that's what happened to me back in 1991 when I moved to the UK, namely London. Life has never beens so sweet and I never looked back. Hence my Twinings tea box salvage. Panpastel was invaluable to stain the edge of the lid. I used decopatch glue and glitter glue plus London papers and poxy stickers.

So don't forget to check out the Panpastel UK Challenge Blog as this week's theme is 'New Beginnings'

I had so much fun making this and was showing step by step on my Facebook so for those of you who want to subscribe to my Facebook feed, you're more than welcome, I post all my crafty things update publicly so you don't have to add me as a friend if you don't want to, just hit the subscribe button.

After I covered the box in white decopatch basecoast I was ready to add the nice funky paper from ....yep you guessed it decopatch but not before I added the panpastel red colour to the lid.

I really enjoyed creating this box and that made a change from my card making. So what are your new beginnings creations like ?
