Pan Pastel Challenge

My fellow DT member from TIO, AJ, is also on the DT for the brand new Pan Pastel UK Challenge Blog - and because I got some yesterday I thought it only polite to make something for them to join in.

This week, the  theme is "anything goes" and as I have limited colours - 3 greens and an orange - autumn came to mind.  I used my new Tim H die bought yesterday - Autumn Gatherings - boy those leaves are tiny.... and some tattered leaves from my scraps pile (yippee!)

The circle chip is also something I'd started to use for a different challenge a while ago and rejected - it was the right colour (distress stains) so I recycled that too!  Added the Tim sentiment and sprayed some Perfect Copper for some sparkle.

I cut the tiny leaves from some of the Kraft stack by Tim (more scraps!) and coloured them with my pan pastels. 

Stuck all the leaves with a prit-stick glue.

I may not be able to join in many of these challenges, till I get some more colours, but we'll see!!

Hi Helen. Thanks for leaving me a comment about Ally Pally and buying things.
It's really spooky to come over and see you bought the pan pastels yesterday and although I didn't know I wanted them, I got some too and have been 'playing' with them. I love the colours.
How is Sutton these days? I haven't been back for ages!!!
Have a good week.
luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox
