PanPastels, Memory Box dies .... and My Spellbinders Butterflies again !


Hello, It's a bit wet here in North Kent so I am posting a bright tag to dispel the gloom!

After cutting the tag from a Tim Holtz Alteration Die, I stamped it with an Elusive Images Stamp inked up with Versamark Ink.

Then I used some of my new  PanPastels to colour both the background of the tag and all the butterflies. 

After the tag was coloured I swiped a Versamark Pad over the entire area of the tag and covered  it completely in clear embossing powder and heated it with a heat gun.
The Flower Border and both the  large butterflies are Memory Box dies and the small butterflies are my favourites from Spellbinders Shapeabilities.
That's all today  see you soon and thank you for stopping by today ...

BTW have you entered the PanPastel Challenge yet? 'Anything Goes'   with any medium and you can WIN some PanPastels .... !
