I know you will enjoy day 4 of our Dreamweaver Stencils and Stampendous Blog Hop. The designers have been busy creating more fun projects to inspire you to create something of your own.
It's fun in the sun time again with another collaboration between Stampendous and Dreamweaver Stencils! We'll be playing together all of this week, with a fabulous hop on Friday, August 2nd, featuring a slew of amazing talent from both teams, and of course...prizes!!!
Two prize packages will be given away for the comments left on posts Monday-Thursday, July 29th - August 1st, and one prize will be given away for comments left on the hop day, Friday, August 2nd. Winners will be selected randomly and announced Thursday, August 8th. (Note: USA addresses only, please, due to shipping costs.) Here's what you could win:
Stampendous Surfer and Sandcastle Kiddos • Dreamweaver Hot Air Balloon, Ice Cream Cones, Summer, Mosaic Swirls, Bird Words, and Sandcastle stencils
Here's what I created:
- Tape the Three butterflies (LL591) stencil to white cardstock with removable tape
- Use 1/4" stencil brushes and ink pads to add color to the design, you want your color to be fairly deep because you are going to be putting a layer of embossing paste over the inks
- Remove the stencil, clean and dry it
- Re-tape the stencil over the colored image
- Use a palette knife and paste spreader to apply Dreamweaver Regular Embossing Paste (DEP)
- Remove the stencil and place in water for cleaning later
- Immediately sprinkle Crystal glitter over the wet paste
- Let dry, as it dries, the paste will absorb some of the color and you will get a more pastel look
- Mount on a small black mat
- Stamp the verse and small flower from the Stampendous Thoughtful Wishes set (SSC1158) with Archival Jet Black ink
- Color the small flower with markers and use a clear glitter pen to add some sparkle
- Layer into a beautiful card
Now,leave me a comment then hop on over to the next in line. Don't forget to leave some love for them too for a chance to win, and just 'cuz it's nice!
