Hey there guys, it is Sunday, so that means we have another fabulous challenge over at the PANPASTEL UK Challenge Blog...
Did you ever visit out 
 generous sponsor 

they have a fabulous prize for the winner of the challenge.....check out the store guys, and you will have fun

The theme for this weeks challenge is Animals....so you can make whatever you like as long as it has an animal in your project. This is what I made....

I made a Treasure Chest, with lots of Gesso, PanPastels, Graph-it Markers and Distress inks and yesss Crackle....lol...and the people who know me so well know that I just loveeeeee Butterflies and Crackle lol. 

The Top of the box is colored with the Pans and I covered it with Crackle to give it an even older look. The hearts that I placed are made with a Noor Design Die and then colored with the Graph-it Markers. I placed the hearts onto corrugated paper. The edges are worked on with Panpastel Raw Umber and Diarylide Yellow.
The butterfly is the fabulous one from the Wendy Vecchi and I just love it, placed a Pen Nib on top to decorate it some more....I worked on the Treasure Chest with distress inks and crackle and my top of the treasure chest is done.....and offcourse a sentiment could not be missed, I played with the Chit Chat stickers from Tim Holtz. 

The side of the Treasure Chest has been colored with the Graph-it Markers, did you ever use them? You  did not.....my goodness you don't know what your missing cause they are really cool and work on all kinds of  materials and they blend so well together. So I had lots of fun coloring with them. The pretty swirl is stamped onto the side and it is from The Wendy Vecchi's stampset. 

This is the backside of the box, I thougth it would look nice to place a metall piece on the back and in the middle a pearl to give it a classy look. 

And this is the front of the Treasure Chest, it has a metall piece from Tim Holtz on it and the borders are worked on with that fabby lace with pearls....So I hope you like what I made for your inspiration, 

You wanna have fun too, then I suggest you come over to the

  3. Wowsers Terry, wonderful box. Nope, I agree with Claire, treasure chest. I had to take a closer look because your distressing is so wonderful it really looked like a piece of wood off a tree. Gorgeous. Thanks so much for playing along with us at eP in our Get Altered challenge.

  4. I just purchased one of these little chests today to alter sometime. I love them! Yours is fabby! Love the butterflies and the added extra bits and stamping! Wonderful!!!

  5. Absolutely gorgeous, Terry - the shabby vintage finish you've achieved with the PPs and crackle is just wonderful! Great inspiration for the challenge, thank you.
