Halloween Colours

Good morning and welcome to a brand new challenge!! Our theme for the next two weeks is 

'Halloween Colours'
so you don't have to make a Halloween project as long as you use a halloweeny colour palette so we want to see purples, greens oranges and black!!

You don't have to use PanPastels to play along but we love it when you do!
Our lucky winner will receive a fabby prize from our generous sponsors at 
one lucky crafter will receive a mask and a PanPastel (colours may vary) so don't miss out on your chance to win!!


Now lets check out the gorgeous projects from the DT:

Yvonne - I've used  my favourite linen effect card again for this tag.  All details can be found over on my blog.

Doreen- Hello to you all, I am sharing a bit of mixed media today. I have made a wall plaque using a canvas board. Full details of how this was made is on my blog.

Nikky....I'm always the first to get new products and always seem to be the last to get to try them out but I made this at a demo day in Preston a couple of weeks ago and sometimes the really simple things are the ones you like most. This was the first time I got to properly try out the Pearlescent Pan Pastels....
 I just used Versamark through the Tree mask, added some Black Coarse Sparkle Medium (*swoon*) and then layered the purple pearl pan together with a tiny touch of metallic silver...

Claire C I've made a quick and easy autumn scene using Halloween colours. This was a really quick card, I just applied the pearl PanPastel in bands across the white cardstock and then lightly applied the Black pearl medium around the edges for a misty effect. Then I stamped the images with dye inks and matted the scene on some black card

Tracy - Witches, Goblins and Ghosts oh my! I adore Halloween and was over the moon with the theme for this weeks challenge.
Out came a chunk of wood and a pencil to start my sketch before . . .

. . . grabbing a few Spooktacular coloured Pan Pastels, Pearl Mediums, cheap hairspray { fixes each colour of Pan Pastel } fine black liner pen, stamps and a Clearsnap Smooch Ink.

Terry, I had loads of fun working on a canvas. For the background I worked and played with Gesso and Light Modelling Paste with the Stencil from Dutch Doobadoo. The background is colored with Black COARSE panpastel. on top f that I played with the Orange, Purple and different kinds of Panpastels. The butterflies are colored with he Pearlescent Panpastels and on top a bit of crackle

Lou: I decided to make a "tongue in cheek" Halloween inspired card this week and had great fun colouring everything on my card with pan pastels. Full details are on my blog ....
