Welcome to Thursday Dream Scheme sponsored by Dreamweaver Stencils. This week the Dream Team has been given a sketch challenge created by fellow team member Kim Parkinson. Here's the sketch
And here's what I came up with for the sketch:
I just love the new backgrounds, they add such texture and dimension to your creations. They emboss great through a personal die cut machine, which I did with the Opto Checkerboard (LJ915) and Triangle Weave (LJ912) stencils. After embossing, use a 1/2" stencil brush to add color to the embossed designs. The Hot Air Balloon (LL3003) was paste embossed with Dreamweaver Embossing Paste (white matte paste) on a small checkered patterned cardstock. When the paste dries, put the stencil back over the paste and use small stencil brushes to color the balloon. Cut out the balloon, mount it onto black cardstock using foam tape then cut out around the balloon. Cut the backgrounds into strips and mount on black cardstock then on checkered cardstock that matches the balloon. Add the balloon to finish it off. Lots of patterns, lots of color, but they create a fun, upbeat card.
Enjoy more creations at the other designers' blogs and at the DREAM it UP! blog too!
