This is my Design Team Sample for this weeks PanPastel UK Challenge called Love and Romance.
It's a Tim Holtz Tag cut from grunge paper and covered in one coat of gesso, followed by a coat of white acrylic paint. I applied a fair bit of both of the mediums, as I wanted to get some texture in there as well!
The whole tag was covered with Versamark Ink and clear embossing powder then heated with a heat gun.
I like the 'varnished' effect and of course, it sets the chalk of the PanPastels ( you can buy them here)
I invested in a set of the tint colours this week ... Oh so lush!
The roses were cut using the English Rose Die from Marianne Creatables. Each rose was 'squished' around in some left over white acrylic paint, plus some glitter.
I used some Old Gold Metallic Rub On colour over the top of the outer larger Heart Die from the same set.
The other dies are Fantasy Foliage from Marianne Creatables.
A few gems, some fancy wool and bingo!
It was fun making this. It's not so bright as my usual stuff but you need a rich dark atmosphere for romance to flourish !
BTW please take a look at the card my friend Dee made with some PanPastels she bought recently... Her very first PanPastel card ... rock 'n roll !
Thanks for stopping by today.
See you soon
