Thursday Dream Scheme

Welcome to this week's Dreamweaver Stencils Thursday Dream Scheme.  This week we have been given a sketch challenge to create our designs. Here's what the sketch looks like:

And here's what I created from it:

October is right around the corner and Halloween will be here before we know it, so I chose to create a "Fall-o-ween" card.  The colors of Halloween, but more of a fall theme for the image rather than a jack-o-lantern. The dotted paper is from my left over collection of A Muse papers. I edge the pieces with black COPIC marker to make them stand out from the card front better. The pumpkin is from LL515 Pumpkins stencils. There are three pumpkins on the stencil, so I just taped off the other two pumpkins and paste embossed the single small pumpkin with Matte Black Embossing Paste. After I removed the stencil, I sprinkled the image with fine black glitter. The pumpkin is matted on a black layer then adhered to the front of the card with foam mounting tape. A little black ric rak down the side finished it off! Simple and fun!
Hope you've enjoyed today's challenge. Look for more great ideas on the other team members blogs by clicking on their names on the left side of my blog, but first check out the DREAM it UP! blog to see what Lynell  has come up with for the challenge.

Happy Creating,
Louise

It's too cute, and I like the black glittered pumpkin. Just the right amount of bling!

Darling card! I have the Jack-O-Lantern stencil with two pumpkins that would be really cute like this. Love the glitter. P.S. Great class Tuesday at the Cottage Stamper! I finished my mirror and completed the second one, also. They both came out great. Thanks!
