You've got plenty of time to enter as this challenge will run until 3rd January so that our lovely DT can have a well earned rest over Christmas

Now let's see what the DT have been busy making this week.......

Claire C I think I'm addicted to colouring with my PanPastels now, I've coloured this cute image with my PanPastels and then created the background by masking the hills and dusting on a little PanPastel. I added the sky and then stamped the trees in versamark before applying White Pearl PanPastel Medium for some shimmer. To finish off i've added some snow with a white Graph'It Shake Pen





I have made a large tag today. I first made my background by blending Raw Umber andPhthalo Blue PanPastels, then stamped my image.....I used an eraser inside the image to remove some of the PanPastel so I could colour with Promarkers.....The lampost is a Die-cut.xxx







Tracy - It`s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around my home with Primitive Salt Dough Baubles ready to hang on my tree tonight.
So easy to make and fun for all the family using Gesso as a base and 4 Pan Pastels to colour with a little Glassy Gel to mix them with.
More details over on my blog HERE if you have a moment or two. xoxoxo



Yvonne - I decided to make a xmas project without using red and green - I know black isn't normally a colour used for xmas but I hope you think it works.  Please pop over to my blog for more information.






Terry I thought I would alter a Christmas Bag to put under the Christmas Tree. I had fun making it. The background is made with Christmas papers. Topped with White PanPastel and White Coarse Pearlescent PanPastel. I played with the Dutch Doobadoo Stars Stencil with Light Modelling Paste. I placed the cute image on a coaster and added some roses on it and at the bottom some stars with ribbon. The background of the Bag is decorated with some lace, a Wooden Christmas sentiment on a coaster and to finish some white coarse







Wow stunning makes everyone!!

And now on to our Top 3, all the entries were stunning so it wasn't an easy task but  the honours go to


Now let's see what our DT girlies have been busy creating this week. They were challenged to use their PanPastels to colour and I think they've done an amazing job don't you?? You don't have to use PanPastels to enter the challenge though 


Doreen- I have used this Penny Black stamp for my share this week. I first made my background then stamped my image with Black Versafine..When this was dry I rubbed out the pastel from inside the image to give me a clean surface to colour my image.xxx







Yvonne - Twas the Night, Panpastels and glitter - perfect start to the festive season!  I coloured the stockings with a fine paintbrush using Panpastels mixed with water to the consistency of paint.








Claire  C Its so quick and easy to colour your images with PanPastels, its my new favourite technique! I had loads of fun creating this little wall hanging simply blending my PanPastels with the colourless blender and adding a little stencilling to the background.






Terry I had lots of fun making a couple of Plant Labels, with my favourite butterflies on them. I started out with Gesso to give the labels a solide background, than covered them up with tape...and colored the background with White Coars to give it a little shine. The butterflies were colored with white PanPastels, than Blue and Orange Pearlescent PanPastels. To finish my project for your inspiration I have covered the butterflies with Glossy Accents....

And I have played with these products.....just click the linky and it will take you to the store where you can purchase your goodies.....



                                                   

Lou: I had fun colouring up this image using my pan pastels and highlighted areas with my GraphIt glitter markers. I used the pan pastel with a dry paint brush and lightly dampend the brush to create the shaded areas.





      

 Gorgeous makes again girls!!

I hope you're going to join us next week as we've got another fab challenge lined up for you!
