Compendium of Curiosities 2, Challenge 5 and more panpastel love

Managed to spend find some time to take part in Linda of L3 Studio's CCC2 Challenge 5, you can find it here
CCC2 No.5  The technique, Shattered Stains,  can be found on page 48 of Tim's new book.
Shattered Stains fridge magnet

detail - shattered stains

I decided to make a fridge magnet instead of a tag this time, stamped wings on grungeboard, created an acrylic heart charm and die cut some cogs.  Simon Says Stamp are sponsoring this weeks challenge.

I'm still totally loving my panpastels, I now have 21!  My tools are kind of all over the place, so when I spotted a wooden cigar box in the market  for £2.00 I thought it would make the perfect storage for my Sofft tools.
altered cigar box - inside
I used Tim Holtz kraft resist paper to line the partitions in the box, panpastel works really well on this too.
I liked the illustration on the inside of the box so ripped the centre from the TH tissue paper and peeled it back to reveal it, then coloured with distress stains.
altered cigar box - lid
I covered the lid with dressmaking tissue paper, then stencilled the heart, added shading and modelling paste dandelions.
modelling paste border
Used a Dylsuions stencil to add a modelling paste border to the sides.
