WK 1 Anything goes/ Frosty Finish Premium Craft Brand Challenge . . .

 Good morning everyone, it`s time for a brand new challenge over at
and the theme for you at home is . . .
but the design team was asked to create a project with a . . .
Frosty Finish 
 Soooo, I created a little Twinkle Twinkle Little Star tag made from a tag I had kept from some new clothing.
The tag was navy to start with, so a coat of Maimeri Gesso was applied before applying Metallic Pan Pastels and Phthalo Blue Shade Pan Pastel randomly.
It ended up a a touch darker than I wanted so out came the Gesso again, but this time applying a touch with my fingers. While it was still wet I added German Glitter Glass for some added frost.
Next out came my Vagabond, Star Die Cuts and some Premium Brand Cardstock.
I mixed a little Silver Metalic Pan Pastel with Gesso, applied it to each star and while it was still wet sprinkled fine Glitter all over, leaving them to dry.
Using my finger once it was dry I applied Black Pan Pastel all around the edges and a touch of Light Gold on the surface to make it stand out more.
Hmmm, time for a finishing touch . . .
I spied this little tassle hanging from a pot in my shed but it was cream and didn`t go with the tag at all.
I dragged and smudged it through some Pan Pastels on my mat to make it shimmer and match in with the tag.
Well I hope you hop on over to the
