Welcome to another Dream Scheme Thursday challenge sponsored by Dreamweaver Stencils. This week the design team was given a sketch challenge. Here's what it looks like:
I used Dreamweaver's wonderful Bird of Paradise stencil (LR503). This stencil is a nice size to work with and looks great in a variety of techniques. Here's what I came up with today:
Start by taping the stencil to white cardstock, stencil with small brushes and pigment inks (I, of course used Brilliance Inks, they are so beautiful), making your color fairly dark. Remove and clean the stencil. Replace the clean, dry stencil back over the colored image, tape in place and apply Regular Embossing Paste (matte white), remove the stencil and immediately sprinkle with crystal glitter. As the paste dries, it absorbs some of the pigment ink for a beautiful pastel image. Deckle the edge when the paste is dry (about20 minutes) and mount on decorative papers. I know a lot of people relate orange and black to Halloween, but I just love these two colors together, they are so striking!
