A nice easy theme again this week and of course we have a fab prize up for grabs from our sponsor Your Creativity Store too! You don't have to use PanPastels to enter but we love it when you do.

Our guest designer this month is the lovely Rachel , she's soooo talented - check out her gorgeous project for this weeks challenge

Now on to the inspiration from our talented design team, 

Zoe I used phthalo blue tint Pan Pastel to colour then versamark to stamp and Pewter metallics PP over stamps, please visit my blog to find out more

Claire C I've created a little scene using Ultramarine Blue tint PanPastel for the sky adding silver and pewter PanPastels to create the moon and the snowy hills. To create the snow in the sky I stamped a snow stamp with versamark and then dusted over with white and silver PanPastels. I've used Raw Umber and Burnt Sienna PanPastels to add some colour to the stamped images and die cut reindeer

Lou: I have used the Doily 1 mask from Premium Craft Brands as my inspiration for this weeks challenge, embossing all my layers with said mask and then highlighted the raised areas with Versamark and Silver metallic pan pastel.

Terry I made three Christmas Tags with lots of snowflakes on them. Worked on the tags with Modelling Paste, embossingpowder and lots of Metallic Silver PanPastels, some lace and sentiments. 

Tracy - Hi everyone, so sorry for the delay in posting my project! A quick snowflake was created with a few wooden pegs, Maimeri Matt Gel, Yellow Ochre, Light Gold Metallic pan along with pretty paper and German Glitter Glass.
