As usual there is a fab prize up for grabs.

I've included a mini photo tutorial in this post just to show the less experienced Pan Pastel users how I created my leaves, I hope it doesn't bore you lol?

I started by swiping autumn colours onto A4 card stock and sprayed with cheapo hairspray to seal it after.

Then using Perfect Medium ink and these fab leaf stamps by Justrite I stamped ramdomly over the colours trying to get twotoned coloured leaves.
Then I used the different gold and copper shades of the Metallic Pan Pastels gently over the stamped image to bring out lovely shimmery leaves, looks fab in the flesh lol photos don't do them justice! Then sprayed again with hairspray to seal them.
 
Then the tedious bit! Cutting them out, lol which I actually enjoy, but I know many people don't lol!
I created my mats and layers for my card, firstly I got a rusty coloured card stamped with Perfect medium a background stamp all over called "Pinwheel" sorry I can't remember who it's by? Then swiped over with the darkest of the copper metallic PP and sealed with hairspray, I embossed white card stock with "Tied together" EF, bunged on me leaves, the sentiment is from the same stamp set and voila! I hope you like it?
 
Please pop along and visit my very talented teamies and feel inspired to join in, you have to use Pan pastels to enter, just follow the theme, rules are on the blog have a great day xxx
