Challenge 19 Summer Fun

Good morning, we're certainly having some gorgeous summer weather here in the UK so this time our challenge is 

Summer Fun

You don't have to use our products to enter but our lucky winner (chosen by will be in wit a chance of winning some fabby stash from Premium Craft Brands (colours may vary)

Mask stencil 6 x 6 inches Heart of flower  

Our DT will also be choosing their Top 3 picks from all the gorgeous entries too so make sure you link up your entry. (don't forget to read the rules, you can find them at the bottom of the page)

  I have decided to do a  scrapbook today as I do need to catch up with some photographs..
This is for an 8inch x8inch album, it is for a holiday we had in Kos.
My background is made entirely of PanPastels and a couple of stencils, even the hearts were punched out in white card and coloured with pans.
Here are the colours used

Claire C I love to spend time gardening in the summer although I don't look as glamourous as this lovely lady lol. I've used PanPastels, Maimeri Glassy Gel Medium and glitter to create the background. The scene has been coloured with PanPastels and pastel pencils

Terry I had so much fun coloring this cute image, it has been a long time coloring but I am sure I will do loads more in the near future. I made a card with on the background paper and the stencil from Dutch Doobadoo, I worked on the chickenwire stencil with Light Modelling Paste and Purple PanPastel. The image is colored with Markers and all the borders are colored with PanPastels. I have placed some hearts from DD and some roses for the Summer Fun. To finish my card I placed a sentiment from the fabulous stampset Postcard.


Lou: I have decided to make another mini canvas using the warm colours of summer as my inspiration. I created my background using my pan pastels over stamping and then embossing the images with different embossing powders. I have added lots of diferent layers using different stamped images framing some of the images with metal frames tinted with bronze metallic pan pastels. All stamped images are from Premium Craft Brands.
