Challenge 15 One for the boys

Good morning, and welcome to a brand new challenge.
Thanks so much to everyone who entered our last challenge, we were blown away by the standard of the entries! Make sure you pop back next week to check out the winner and Top 3

This time, our theme is

One for the boys

so you can get ahead with those Fathers Day cards or perhaps you've got a male birthday coming up. You don't have to use PanPastels to play along with us and our lucky winner will receive a fabby prize of goodies from Premium Craft Brands

You've got two whole weeks to enter and as always the DT have created some gorgeous projects to inspire you

Claire C I've made a card for a new baby boy using Maimeri Light Modelling Paste, a Dutch Doobadoo Stencil and PanPastels in Ultramarine Blue Tint and Diarylide Yellow and Tint The image has been coloured with Graph'It markers and I've distressed the edges with Raw Umber PanPastel


Terry I have made a Vintage Babycard for a boy, I have worked with scappaper, colored the die underneith the baby with blue PanPastel, the hearts and all around the card and even the roses are colored with Pans. And to finish I placed some lace and hearts.

Lou: I decided to show how versatile Pan Pastels are with your die cuts to make a "Dad" themed card. The majority of my die cuts (at least 90%) were cut from cream, linen card and I have coloured them with my pan pastels. Full details of how I coloured my die cuts can be found on my blog.

  2. Fabulous theme, my first one doesn't include Pan Pastels. It is a frame for my Dad for Fathers Day. I am not placing a picture in it as he is a volunteer for the commonwealth games and I will place a picture of him in it when I have one of him running with the Baton at age 74. There are three stars on the frame as he has three children x

    Oh I meant to apologise for the squint pic. It was straight when I added it xx

  3. I have added my second entry (number 5) my Nephews 3rd Birthday Card. He is a little cutie with the big brown eyes. He will break some hearts when he is older....
    I have used pan pastels to change a boring white card to a lovely toned blue card to coordinate with the truck and tractors etc....
