Shabby Chic Wall Hanging

I really wanted to play with the printable canvas but not for printing on so this is what I've come up with. I used a coarse texture paste through a stencil then once that had dried I added Pan Pastels, originally it was just the pale colours but thought it needed a bit more oomph so added the Violet Shade, I wanted the areas that had the pattern on to stand out a bit more so used the gold pan but not really sure which one and it looks totally different on here to what it does in the pack.  I used a few die cuts to add embellishments and apart from the crown all were cut from Centura Pearl, covered with distress ink and then dusted over with some metallic pans. I have added ribbon to make something to hang it by and have put some beads and butterflies on too.
On the back I have added another piece of canvas with the Irish Blessing,

May there always be work for your hands to do
May your purse always hold a coin or two; 
May the sun always shine on your windowpane; 
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain; 
May the hand of a friend always be near you; 
May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

There are several about but this one was perfect for the person who is getting this.

I'm entering this into the Pan Pastel challenge which this week is Pretty Shabby Chic, now I'm not sure this fits the bill but I'll give it a go.
