Dreamweaver-Stampendous Blog Hop Day 2!

Welcome to Day 2 of the Dreamweaver Stencils and Stampendous Faces of Art blog hop! The Dream Team always loves incorporating the great products from Stampendous into our creations.


We were challenged to create using Dreamweaver and Stampendous products, and based on the name of the hop, "Faces or Art", I have decided to incorporate a few different faces.  Here's what I created for you today:
LG706 - Monstera shape, and LS1014 - Kitty face

Yesterday's tropical face was serene and dreamy. Today's face is a little sly, like he's waiting to jump out at you from behind those leaves! The beautiful Monstera shape stencil (LG706) add a jungle feel to the card, and the Kitty face (LS1014) gives a hint of suspense. I used an ink transfer technique to make both leaves, one on the base card and one on a second piece of paper so I could cut it out. Distress inks were rouged into the background, then the Kitty face was paste embossed with Matte Black Embossing Paste. The flower from the Stampendous Blossom Beauty stamp set was stamped with VersaMark in the lower right corner and sprinkled with Stampendous shabby pink embossing enamel, heat set, then colored with Distress markers. The upper left corner was embossed with Stampendous aged silver embossing enamel.  As a final touch, I added some Stampendous taupe Color fragments in the other corners.
Hop on over to see what the other team members have created for you today!

Happy Creating,
