Challenge 12 Go Grungy with Pan Pastels Challenge . . .

Happy Easter everyone, wishing you all that is good in the world today.
Time to reveal the new challenge over at
and the theme is
Go Grungy
 I had such a fun time altering a little set of MDF drawers Alex had bought me.
{ he`s a good man }
All I needed was some  . . .
Pretty papers Tim Holtz, MME
Maimeri Matt Gel to adhere the papers, sequins down
Words typed, printed out on the computer
{ I missed out the word " away " and didn`t realise until now, lol }
Pan Pastels Black, Burnt Sienna Extra Dark, Titanium White
Metallic Pan Pastels Light Gold, Bronze, Pewter
Versamark ink pad
Tim Holtz Idea Ology Clock Keys 
I don`t have any steps by steps I`m afraid, but it`s so easy to distress and grunge up your papers with Pan Pastels.
I applied a versamark ink pad to all the edges then applied black and metallic pan pastels with a sponge.
Scuff up the papers with some sandpaper and apply more Pan Pastels until your happy.
A few handmade flowers
with words and embellies to finish.

Be sure to pop on by next Sunday to see what is hidden away in the drawers for safekeeping.

I sure hope you will join us for the challenge, remember you have 2 wks to join in the fun and be in with the chance of winning some fabulous Stash!

Just click here to be taken over to the challenge blog and see what the rest of the girls have created for you.
Till next time
Big hugs

lol I thought it didn't read quite right Tracy but this chest is fabulous. I ♥ the third key and want to know what is inside.

Your hands must have been very messy once you had finished all that distressing. Super.
