PanPastels Challenge .... Good Luck!

Morning all,
In a rush today because I'm off to the 'Smoke' and Ally Pally to buy loads of crafty stuff !
Along with two friends, Karen and Sheila, I will be zooming up to London on the high speed train. Only takes 30 minutes... a cough and a spit and we're there! Looking forward to meeting another friend Melissa, so we can help her spend all her money!
I need some new PanPastel sponges so going to look for those and maybe treat myself to some more Pans as well.

Please pop over and enter our PanPastel Challenge. The theme this week is Good Luck.
You can use any medium you like and we would love to see some of your work. There is a prize of a super trial pack of PanPastels from our Sponsor if you win.

This card was a doodle to make. A 2 inch strip of white linen card coloured with three shades of my Green PanPastels and sprayed with a cheap hairspray to set the chalk... the Shamrock image ( yeah, sorry not a four leaf clover, artistic licence!) was stamped using various colours of Versafine inks.
Stick the completed strip to a White Linen card blank, go mad with some glossy accents to 'bling' it up a bit ..... Bish, bash, bosh !  Tidy!

Right, I'm off.... see you soon.
Thanks for popping over today.
Eileen ( looking forward to watching the F1 racing tonight !) x

  10. Hi Eileen
    Just popping in to check what you've been up to while you're away having a great time at Ally Pally. Can't wait to hear what you've treated yourself too!!!
    Love all these Lavinia style cards. the colour panels are gorgeous and look so classy, must have a play with that myself. Funnily enough I spent last week playing with my Lavinia stamps, sometimes, you just feel like sticking to one thing don't you.
    Hope you are having a great time.
    Hugs Lisax
