Inspired by Tim

Hello to you all, I am here today with my post for the challenge over at PanPastel. The theme for this fortnight is
Inspired by Tim
I find Tim a bit grungy which I am not very good at, but this is what Tim has inspired me to do.

I have painted gesso to  the background of of a wooden 6inch x 3inch plaque then when dry covered with Phthalo blue Panpastel . After setting with hairspray I then lightly went over it with some Silver again setting in between layers to stop the colours blending....I dabbed some more Phthalo Blue through Tim's Burlap stencil and stuck down some of Tims tissue wrap with PVA glue ....I stamped the bush image with Black Versafine and clear embossed, I also repeated this for the sentiment.
Next I glued the diamond  cut outs and Tim's Bird and cage dies which I had tried to grunge with some pewter gilding wax.Lastly I added a burlap bow.xxx

There is a fab Prize up for grabs of a  mask and a Pan Pastel.....
