We hope you all managed to see us on Create and Craft last Sunday - the show was a little crazy but those metallics flew out of the door so thanks to everyone who watched and we hope you all have your goodies now and are enjoying using them! If you need some ideas on how to use them check out Nikky's You Tube channel here, there are a couple of great tutorials you can use!

So, this week's challenge for the design team is
We have such great products to use and you can make all kinds of embellies with Pan Pastels and the Maimeri range together with other things too, so we challenged the team to show us what they could do.
As ever, YOUR challenge at home is Anything Goes, but we'd love you to show us your handmade Embellies too, we know loads of you make your own or alter them in some way so we're looking forward to seeing this week's makes!

Let's see what the DT have to show you...

Claire C I've used lots of Metallic PanPastels on my little canvas, The background was made with Magenta Shade and I've used Maimeri Light Modelling Paste and more metallic Pans through a gorgeous Pronty mask to create the background. I've used PanPAstels to colour lots of embellies: ribbon, lace, die cuts. I've also used light gold PanPastel to give a subtle shimmer to the main image too.

Terry The background of my MDF word HOME is worked on with Metall Foil which is embossed, on top worked on with the fabulous Metallic PanPastels and on top of that finished with Iridescent Paste, the little hearts and butterflies have a layer of Versa Mark ink and Metallic PanPastels. To finish the project I placed a piece of lace on the bottom.
Suzi I combined White and Kraft Card with Pastel tones of Pan Pastels, Light Modelling Paste, and a beautiful mask to create this pretty card.
Tracy - Hi everyone, this is my first time attempting this technique using Maimeri Mediums/Gels, Doily Mask Stencil, Metallic Pan Pastels and embellishments. More details can be found on my blog HERE.
Here is a closer look at my coloured embellishments -
