New addiction Pan Pastels....!!!

Hi everyone I am back from a fantastic four days at "A Crafty Weekend Away" organised by the lovely Amy (co - owner of Natalie and Amy's Store). It was so fun. I got to make a whopping 23 cards and do some other crafts such as resin jewellery and ceramic painting. We enjoyed a great girlie time. Chatting, giggling, drinking tea, coffee, wine, eating, hotub and more.

I became slightly addicted to Pan Pastels and the most fun I had with them was creating my own backgrounds.

Here is a card I have made for some challenges. 
Recipe  - Pan Pastels  from Natalie and Amy's shop
Inkadinkadoo stamps
Back to Basics Christmas Paper  from Natalie and Amy's shop
Glossy Accents from Natalie and Amy's shop
Crafters Companion Spray and Sparkle 
Versamark watermark pad available at Natalie and Amy's shop.

I created the backing papers by stamping the image with versamark I then used different shades of pan pastels over the images. I sprayed with Crafters companion Spray and Sparkle and then repeated with my second image. I then cut out some baubles from the Back to basic papers. I stuck on with a foam pad and then added glossy accents. I added some faux stitching to finish the card.

Challenges I would like to enter are:

2 sisters  - Anything Goes
Totally Gorjuss Challenge - Traditional Christmas Colours

Thanks for stopping by today I really appreciate your time and comments. I hope you are inspired too. Hugs Pascale
