Anjie - I started by stamping the background using the Vintage Scruffy Flowers stamp set. I then coloured all the flowers and background using the OrangeVioletpermanent red and permanent green Pan Pastels. I then added the white dots using the Graph'It Shake white pen. Next I stamped the girl and wings from the Art Girl stamp set onto white card and coloured them in using the the VioletOrangeNeutral Grey Extra DarkPaynes Grey Extra Dark and Black Pan Pastels. I then added the dots using the White Shake pen, and cut the images out. Finally I stamped the sentiment from the Leave A Little Sparkle stamp set.

Doreen-I have made my background with red and yellow Panpastels masking off the moon My images were then stamped with Black Archival and  I used an eraser to rub out the PanPastel on the larger flowers then coloured with purple

Yvonne - A Halloween Sunset.  More details can be found on my blog.

Claire C I've made a little tag using Halloween colours. I was experimenting with Maimieri Glassy Gel medium for the background and discovered that it works beautifully mixed with PanPastels to create a gorgeous glossy raised effect when you stencil with it!. You can find all the details on my blog.

Terry I had lots of fun with altering a canvas and started out with gesso and worked for the background with the metall tool to make scratches on the canvas. On top of them I played with the Roses Stencil from Dutch Doobadoo and the A4 Butterfly stencil from Premium Craft Brands, but did not use the butterfly but only the Huge Roses.....when the background was dried up I played with the Purple, Orange Pearlescent Pans and the Metallic, White COARSE and Purple Pans to give the Roses some colour. And last but not least I placed a wooden window in the middle of the canvas and placed a butterfly in the middle which I colored with the Pearlescent Pans and topped it off with Glossy Accents.


Thanks for visiting, we'll be back next week with a new challenge for you!!
