Right then, on to this weeks challenge which is 'Winter Wonderland', using metallics plus one other colour. Our extra twist for the DT was to use the gorgeous new metallic PanPastels plus one other colour but as they are so new we know not everyone has them yet so that doesn't apply to challenge entrants. The winner will be announced on Sunday 15th December and our lucky winner will receive a fabulous prize of goodies from Premium Craft Brands

Before we showcase the gorgeous projects from the DT, we've got a very special guest designer joining us this month,the lovely and very talented Rachel Fisher! Rachel has created this stunning canvas for this week's theme

Claire C I've used silver, pewter and white PanPastels to create this wintery scene

Terry I made a Christmas Tag worked on it with lots of Modelling Paste and stencils for the background. Used the Silver Metallic PanPastels on my Tag and the Blue PanPastel.
