Now back to our new challenge, let's have a peek at the inspiration from the DT ....

Alysha - This fortnight I have created a tag using yellow and orange pan pastels and stamping using versamark and dusting over with the Pans.
Looking forward to seeing your projects, hugs Aly xx

Terry  I 've had a lot of fun with making a gift . The background is made with a layer of Gesso what I 've smeared on the heart first and then when it was half dry there have taken it off again .
Than I worked with Light Modelling Paste and a Roses Stencil and once again I took it half off again.....this way you create a very nice old look. Actually I stumbled on it by accident lol..because it was difficult to place the stencil in the heart.One of the last layers that I played with is a stamp from a Rose. I stamped on top of all the other layers with the Metallic PanPastels and Ink. All around my two hearts I played with heartsy lace.
The aim of my project is to put it down as decoration on a table If you want to see more pictures you can click my name and it will take you to my blog.

Here are some of the products that I have used:

 Pans are perfect for making a quick scenic card, they really make light work of this kind of card! I've used some old favourite stamps and added some of the gorgeous new Tropical Stamps from Polkadoodles to create this card, using  my Pans for some summer colour.
