PanPastels, Dylusions Stamps and White Acrylic Paint!

Morning fans.. good weather for crafting! I've been very busy so I will be blogging a lot this week!

 I hope the sun comes out soon, it sure does make us feel good but I find when it is wet or gloomy making a card or tag  cheers me up no end!

This card is my Design Team Sample for this weeks PanPastel Challenge *Anything Goes*  easy to enter just make a card and link to the the above challenge blog. You can use any medium it does not have to be PanPastels, but I love 'em as you know by now!

This week is a bit special 'cos we have a * Guest designer, Ali Reeve* and also Lindsay, another of our design team members, is donating this weeks prize of THREE digi stamps from LEJ Designs so get cracking then!

A quick swoosh over some white linen card with various colours of PanPastels, such RICH smooth pigments. Seal the colours with a light spray of 'cheapo' hairspray and then get messy with white acrylic paint and sequin waste. When that was totally dry I stamped using the gorgeous stamps from the Dylusions range and had a bit of a doodle with my white gel pen.

 Plonked on some 'Chit Chat' words from the Tim Holtz range of goodies and that's it ... Tidy!
