PanPastels, Marianne Creatables Leaves, Impressabilities Stencil and some Memory Box Dies on a Tim Holtz Tag.

This tag is my DT example for this week's  PanPastel UK Challenge

Please take a look and have a go at this week's challenge called 'Glitter and Glitz'.

As you may be aware by now, I'm having great fun with my PanPastels because they are so rich and vibrant. I'm vibrant .... just wish I woz rich!

This is a grunge paper, Tim Holtz die cut tag, painted with a coat of gesso, then one coat of white acrylic paint.

When it was completely dry I placed a Spellbinders Impressabilities stencil over the tag and stencilled the design with Versafine ink.
I applied some blue PanPastel colour which highlighted the patten of the stencil giving me a very attractive background .

Metal flowers painted with alcohol inks
I used a 'cheap as chips'  hairspray to set the PanPastel colour.

The other diecuts are Leaves from Marianne Creatables, (I used PanPastels to colour these in green) a Butterfly and a Floral Wreath, both from the Memory Box range.

The metal flowers are from my crafty 'stash' and cos they looked a bit battered I painted them with acholol inks .

I love tags so I think I will make a few more!

Thanks for popping by my blog today and many, many thanks for the super comments you are leaving for me to read and enjoy!

See you soon.
