Hello to you all I am back with my inspiration post

I first coloured my card with Chromium Oxide Green Shade and Diarylide Yellow PanPastels, Then I sprayed with some cheap hairspray before stamping the Rose. I then masked this off and stamped the postcard images. I have edged the card with black PanPastel. I finished off by adding the trellis ,birdcage and

Anjie For my make I have altered a photo mount.

I started by painting the mount with white gesso. I then mixed some Turquoise Pan Pastel with some Maimeri Light Modeling Paste to give the light blue background. I then placed the Butterfly Mask/stencil over the mount and went over it with a Versamark Inkpad to make it tacky. Then I went over the stencil with the Ultramarine Blue Pan Pastel. Then I used the Black Pan Pastel around the aperture and the edges of the mount to make it pop. Finally I made some rolled roses and coloured some stamped butterflies with the same Pans as before.

Claire C I've made a canvas using lots of random paper roses from my stash, I painted it all with black gesso and then set to work with lots of Metallic PanPastels. The background was made with the gorgeous large Roses stencil by Dutch Doobadoo and then layered up over a Dutch Doobadoo Brick stencil background. I've added a couple of butterflies and a sentiment made using the fab stamps that Nikky has designed for Premium Craft Brands

Terry, I have altered a little gift bag, the background is covered with Ligh Modelling Paste, worked with the stencil Roses by Dutch Doobadoo and I worked with lots of PanPastels that I mixed together to get this purple color. The top layer is Irisdescent Paste to give it a shiny look. For the back of the gift bag I used some hearts from Dutch Doobadoo, I have placed a fabby sentiment from Dutch Doobadoo and a butterfly in front with a metal corner to finish my project. 

The products that I have used are
