Good morning, hope you're all enjoying a lovely crafty weekend!! 
Its time for our new challenge and this time around our theme is


As always we've got a fabby prize of a mask and a PanPastel (colours may vary)
lined up for our lucky winner thanks to those lovely peeps at 

  Magenta Tint  PanPastel

You don't have to use PanPastels to enter (although we love it when you do!) and you've got until Saturday 6th September to enter so there's loads of time to play along. The winner and top 3 will be announced on Sunday 14th September.

Our DT have been busy bees creating some gorgeous pink projects to inspire you:

I don't have pale pink PanPastel so just thought I would tell you that they mix fabulously I just scraped a little Magenta and white and mixed,just use as normal . More details from my blog.

Claire C I'm loving altering MDF hearts and went pink pink pink with this one lol. I began with a coat of Maimeri White Gesso and once that was dry added some colour with Magenta and Magenta Tint PanPastels. I added a little deeper pink through the gorgeous Peacock stencil - perfect for swirls around the edges of your project. I added some texture with Maimeri Light Modelling Paste using a piping bag and dusted with Magenta Tint PanPastel and glamour dust . The image was coloured with PanPastels and detail added with Graph'It markers

Yvonne - Lovely as a Tree, Santa and Pink?

Tracy - Sharing another 8x8 canvas with you today that is Pink, pink, pink! I had fun using Maimeri Mediums, Stamps, White Acrylic Paint and Pan Pastels in Magenta, Magenta Extra Dark Shade, Titanium White and Permanent Red. More details are on my blog if you would like to stop on by HERE

Terry, I had more fun with a small canvas and played with lots of Pink Pastels on the background, used a Dutch Doobadoo Stencil to create some texture and worked on it with Light Modelling Paste, placed some lace and at the bottom lots of pearls, a rose and some flowers. In the middle I put a butterfly and worked on it with PanPastel, crackle and topped it with Iridescent paste. Last but not least a sentiment

Well I needed a childs birthday card so thought this would be the ideal image,It is called "Fishing Friends. Full details of this from my blog.

Yvonne - Bold and Bright inspiration.  I have a new set of stamps which, at the moment, are my favourite!!  Had to use them on this piece.

Terry I had fun with a small canvas, I worked on the background with Metallic PanPastels, Red, Blue, Yellow and Purple. Splashed it all with water and made little dots with the Graph-it Shake Pen, on top Iridescent Paste and underneith the butterfly on the canvas itself a butterfly with Glossy Accents. On top of that a Butterfly colored with Pans to give it a Dimensional look. To finish a sentiment.

The products that I have used are:

Claire C I've altered an MDF heart, I adore the yellows in the PanPastel collection so I used Hansa Yellow, Diarylide Yellow to colour my heart once I'd given it a coat of Maimeri white gesso. I added some texture using Maimeri Light modelling Paste and a Dutch Doobadoo Chicken Wire stencil. You can find all the details on my blog

Here are the products I've used.

Lou:  I wasn't sure what to do this week, so put everything away and then took out a selection of random items and this is what came about! I have embossed the background and then added further colour highlights. A selection of stamped images as my background, finished off with a butterfly corner die cut (Tonic) and some additional flowers.
