Yvonne - wow did I enjoy making this one with all the fabulous products from Premium Craft Brand. Details of how I made this on my blog.

I have made my background by shading Diarylide Yellow, Permanent Red Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Sienna Shade,I then sealed this with some cheap hairspray,next I stamped my image using black Archival ink and coloured in with PanPastels,I then stamped the sentiment and tied on some twine and a

Tracy - Inspiration for my project came from the trees changing colour and a time to be thankful for what we have. A chunk of wood, book pages, Maimeri Gesso/ Matt Gel, a stamp and a few Pan Pastels was all that was needed to create my wood art.
Really quick and such a joy to mix the Pan Pastels together. Please hop on by my blog if you have a mo. x

Anjie - On the image her hair and skin are coloured with Graph'It Makers and the dress with Pan Pastels. The colour I used for the dress is Orange Extra Dark. To create the background I have used the leaves stencil and mixed some iridescent paste with the orange Pan Pastel and put through the stencil. I then used the pearlescent orange Pan Pastel over the top of all. Then I used the pearlescent PP red around the edges and finally the magenta extra dark PP right at the edges. I then stamped the butterfly and sentiment from the Postcard stamp set and used the same colour PP's to colour them. I have finished the card off with some satin ribbon from my stash. More details on my blog.

Here are the products I used.
