Triple Treat - PATwits 3Up Challenge - Night 1 - LB


Over at the PA blog this week it's the turn of the PATwits to take over.  There are 3 projects being show cased each night from a designer and first up was Lin Brown. I don't have that many of Lins products because she has a love of flowers, and I don't.


First up was Shirley with her cards. I used LB stamps and die cut for the inner flower and the quote. The leaves were made using the Ellen Vargo sketchy pod shaped stamp.



Next up was Cazz with her storage unit. I decided to paint an mdf box and make it into a pen holder. I crackled the 2 sides then applied GP mixed with chutney through script and number stencils. The background colours are chartreuse and seaweed with a coat of tikka underneath.  The other 2 sides are LP images and PA Minis stamped in timber brown stazon.


And last but not least my PATwit friend Helen who decorated a paper mache hanging board. I chose a piece of mdf, painted it in chartreuse and seaweed. Stamped some LB images with chutney. Coloured some GP with seaweed and applied through a mini circle stencil. I painted the chipboard pieces with a mix of chutney and seaweed and stamped a PA mini script in black stazon. 


I die cut the PA dragonfly using an off cut off a gelli print and lightly went over it in chartreuse to co-ordinate it in with the background colours. 

Now the reason for the 3 projects on the one post is because this week you are only allowed 3 entries into the prize draw and as I know that Ellen Vargo and Lynne Perrella were also on the list, I'm saving myself for later in the week!!!
