Get Ready to HOP!

Do you hop? Blog hop that is. Well, if not, get ready to learn because starting on September 30, 2010 Dreamweaver will be sponsoring a blog hop with lots of beautiful samples, techniques and, best of all, PRIZES!! Stay tuned for more details as we get closer.

In the meantime, to help you get excited here is another Dreamweaver sample that I recently sent to Lynell featuring the new large branch with berries stencil (LJ900).
I started by using Cut 'n' Dry foam to rouge Distress Inks (Scattered Straw, Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky) onto 90 lb. watercolor paper. Place your stencil at one side and use a small stencil brush to stencil the branch with Distress Ink Chipped Sapphire. Flip the stencil over and do the other edge so you have branches coming in from both sides. Clean your stencil and gently tape it down over the two stenciled images so it overlays each of them a little. Paste with Glossy White Embossing Paste, remove the stencil and immediately sprinkle with Crystal Glitter. When the paste is dry, brush some Chipped Sapphire around all the edges of the image. Layer and embellish with coordinating papers and ribbons. I added one of Dreamweavers new white pins that I colored with COPIC markers to match my color scheme. (B32, B97, B37)
Don't forget to watch for more details about the Dreamweaver Blog Hop coming soon!
Happy Creating,
Louise

I'll be anxiously awaiting the blog hop at the end of the month! Your branch/berry card is so pretty. The Dreamweaver pin embellishment and sheer ribbon bow add the perfect finishing touch. The pin really "pops" as it mirrors the berry images. Lovely!
