We also pick a DT top 3

So onto my makes for our first challenge as Premium Craft Brands the theme this week is "Anything goes" please read the rules before linking! We are an "Anything goes" challenge which means you can make absolutely anything as long as you are following the rules and theme! So get crafting, can't wait to see what you make :)

 

I stamped my Dylusions border stamps with "Versamark" ink then swiped over with my Pan pastels, sealed with some cheapo hairspray, I then stamped the stripy background again with Versamark and swiped over this time with the gorgeous "Metallic" pan pastels various colours, these have given a beautiful subtle shimmer in the background but really picked up the shimmer more on the stripes, the photo really doesn't do the tag justice! The image is a "Banksy" inspired stamp from Beecrafty!

This tag I used Pans again in "Dairylide yellow tint" then using the fabulous Premium Art Brands "A5 Victorian mask" I only used parts of it in the corners, using "Dairylide yellow and oxide green shade pan pastel"

The stamps are Jofy by Paperartsy! I stamped with Archival ink, then painted using pan pastels mixed with a bit if water, then added highlights with Coloursoft pencils, I decoupaged the flowers and leaves on! I hope you like my tags? And they have inspired you to give it a go?

Many thanks for visiting my long blog today xx
