Sunday - and it's still raining!

Yes, dear readers, with the exception of three hours on Friday (when it was actually quite pleasant) it hasn't stopped raining on the Purple Palace since Thursday!  I suspect hubby may soon be commencing work on an ark! and I'm hoping the postie will be able to get through with my order of snorkel and flippers!

Anyhoo, enough on the VILE weather - there's a new challenge over on the Pan Pastels blog where you don't HAVE to use Pan Pastels but you DO get the chance to win a starter kit - sound good? Then why not pop over and try your luck - this week's challenge? It's "FROSTY AND BRIGHT" ...... thinking caps on, crafters!



Materials used:
  • 14½cm square 300 gsm scallop edged white card and matching envelope
  • 14cm square of snowball paper
  • 13½cm square white card panel
  • Inkadinkado penguins stamped twice using Versafine onyx black ink on to white card and a second time on to a post it - to cut out and use as a mask - positioned over the images on the white card panel.
  • Inkadinkado snowflakes stamped using Versamark ink on to the white card panel before applying pan pastels in blues and greys and then setting with hairspray
  • Alcohol markers to highlight the penguins headgear
  • Sparkle 'n Sprinkle sentiment stamped using Versafine onyx black ink
  • Crystal stickles to highlight snowflakes and "ice"
And here's a close up - to show the glitter


Happy Sunday, stay dry and safe out there in all that "weather"!!

Definitely a frosty feel to this Kathy, love the little penguins.
No rain here today but some is forecast for tomorrow, I don't think it will be as bad as yours. Hope your snorkel and flippers arrive ok lol.
Happy Sunday to you too.
