Let's have a look at this weeks inspiration from the DT

Doreen-I covered my background with Permanent Red, Phthalo Blue and Black Panpastels while masking off the moon with a punched circle. I  stamped my image and this was then mounted onto white and black card

Anjie - To create this card I used 2 of the roses from the Roses A5 stamp set and stamped them to create the corner. I stamped some of them a few times and decoupaged them up. I then used the frame and sentiment stamp and the roses in bud stamp to create the message section. For the background I used the A4 Butterfly mask and embossed it onto white card.

Yvonne - For my Birthday card this week I've used Hansa Yellow and Pthalo Blue Shade - no green!.  I blended the two colours over the background then masked off a square with a post it note.  I then stamped the raindrops and branches and removed the post it note.  More details on my blog would love you to pop over.

Claire C  I've used my PanPastels to create a distressed, vintage feel to some free backing papers to create my card. adding a little stamping with versmark and more PanPastels

Lou: I have used old book pages to create my layers, all coloured with pan pastels. The flowers and butterflies have then been embossed to add sparkle and shine to my project. Full details are on my blog.

Products I have used:

Terry: I have made a |Birthday Bag, A Shabby Chic one this time, I have worked with lots of lace, Gesso, Light Modelling Paste, Pink Pearlescent PanPastels, White Coarse and a few Dutch Doobadoo Hearts, flowers and a cute image of a vintage girl. The top layer is Irisdescent Paste, to give it a nice shimmer......

Gorgeous projects girls!!
