Today we are really excited to not only bring you more inspiration for our challenge but to also introduce our new Guest Designer who has joined us
Yvonne Froehlich
You are going to adore Yvonne's work!

So let's get to today's challenge, which is week two of our
Flora and Fauna

So let's see this week's inspiration from the team...

Yvonne...I used an A4 sheet of white card onto which I blended a selection of Panpastels - I used Magenta, Violet, Orange and Yellow.  I drew around a size 8 tag (three times) to make the Triptych effect. I cut the tags out which left a strip of card which I used to die cut the butterflies so that the colours would tone in with the background. I also used the Panpastels to colour the seam binding. After stamping I added black Distress Glitter to make it pop.

Doreen... I first made my background using  Permanent Red, Magenta and Diarylide Yellow PanPastels while masking out the moon.I then gave it a quick spritz of some cheap hairspray to set the pastels. My images were then stamped  with Black Versafine

Terry, Hey there guys I had fun altering a heartshaped box, used lots of Gesso, Light Modelling Paste and the Roses Stencil from Dutch Doobadoo. Lots of Acrylic Paints and PanPastels to colour the butterflies on top and to cover the box.

Claire  I've created a summery scene with  my PanPastels, its so quick and easy to do and so much easier than brayering. You can find all the details on my blog
