PanPastels and Dylusions Stamps

Morning fans... who's a lucky girl today then? I checked my lottery ticket last night after returning home from the Allhallows Crop, where I had enjoyed a super duper day with my crafty mates, to find I had won £2.50 in Fridays draw! I'm going to rush off and buy a roll of double sided tape! I love spending money on craft stuff. :)

Talking of spending money .... I spent a 'few bob' at Ally Pally last week, on Tim Holtz Ranger products including his Distress Stains (all of 'em!)  I had a great time and also bought the Dylusions stamp set that I've used on the bookmarks shown here.

Lets face it, the funkiness of the stamps along with the vibrancy of  PanPastels ...What a winner'!

So easy to make too! Swish about a bit with any colours you like of the PanPastels, set the colours with a cheap hairspray or fixative and stamp the images using black ink, I used Versafine here.

Bish, bash, bosh!.... job done.

Oh yes, because this weeks PanPastel Challenge is 'Add a Flower' , I cut some of the Marianne Creatables 'Button Flower' flowers, coloured them with PanPastels and plonked them on each bookmark.

You do not have use PanPastels on your entry,  use any medium you like.

Go on have a go, a great prize to win of a PanPastel Trial pack. Say I sent you....Every little helps. tic!

Well, that's it for  today.

Thank you for following and looking at my blog. Please pop back  in the week to see some tags that I made yesterday at the crop using Dylusions Stains... (put your sun glasses on for those!)

A quick message to my fellow Allhallows Crop Members .... yesterday was fab, thanks for your company and the laughter!

F1 racing later today... crafty table out in front of the Telly.... see, told you I was lucky!

Have a great  Sunday.
