Mask stencil 6 x 6 inches Heart of flower  Magenta Tint  PanPastel

 And our Design Team will also be choosing their top 3 picks too!!

Now let's see what our lovely DT girls have been doing this week ...
they are definitely in the pink lol.

Doreen-I first made my background using my PanPastels while masking off the moon and using a mask for the hills. Next came my Stamps and a die-cut sentiment. More details on my blog

Yvonne - All stamping used Versamark.  The white is embossing powder and the pink is Permanent Red Tint straight on to the Versamark.  More details on my blog.

Anjie - This started out as a MDF heart which I primed with white Gesso. I then covered it with the dotty paper. I lightly sanded the edge of the paper and used the Magenta Pan Pastel to colour the distressing and added some faux stitching. I then painted over the paper with the Glassy Gel to give it a sheen. I then used the dots part of the Leaves & Birds mask and put  light modelling paste through it.I then cut out some letters and added some faux stitching and covered them in Glassy Gel again. I then used a die cut to create the border and used the Magenta Pan Pastel to distress it. I then glued everything in place.

Tracy ~ so happy to be here today sharing my love of using Pan Pastels as watercolour paint on a little canvas.
A quick doodle doo and it was time to mix the PP with a little water to make it fluid. Once dry I added a few dotty dots using a white gel pen.
Now to let it tell it`s story . . . a quick type on the computer, printed off, snipped it out and it was ready to be fixed in place with a little Maimeri Matt Gel to finish.

Claire C I've made a little wallhanging using Stampbord ATCs, I've always loved Stampbord as it works beautifully with ink but it also works a treat with your PanPastels Too. I've blended shades of magenta PanPastel and added lots of stamping, lace and ribbon for a pretty vintage feel, You can find more details on my blog


Terry, I have altered a pair of real Dutch Wooden Shoes, had them for a while and at first they were yellow. Not anymore...I worked on the wooden shoes with Gesso, Light Modelling Paste, on top colored them on top of crackle with Pearlescent red and white PanPastel. And topped it all off with Iridescent Paste. For more detailled pictures visit my blog please.

  1. Many thanks, specifically to Doreen who really kick started me for this challenge. I have several trees & landscape stamps, but they are difficult to use or find use for in the 'run of the mill' card making - for general greetings.


We love to hear your feedback so please feel free to leave the team a comment below - we love reading them!
