Dreamweaver-Stampendous Blog Hop Day 4!

It's been a great week of creativity between the Dream Team and the Stampendous Team! Welcome to Day 3 of the Dreamweaver Stencils and Stampendous Faces of Art blog hop! 



We were challenged to create using Dreamweaver and Stampendous products, and based on the name of the hop, "Faces of Art".   Here's what I created for you today:
LX7018 -Steampunk clock

"Face" is a word that can describe a number of different things. Today I am sharing  a clock "face" with you. It is a very simple technique that could be used on a wide variety of stencils. This particular card would be great for a masculine birthday, graduation, well really anything!Simply paste emboss the Steampunk clock stencil (LX7018) with Metallic Silver Embossing Paste, remove the stencil and place in water for cleaning, sprinkle the wet paste with Stampendous aged silver embossing enamel, and heat set. It's as easy as that!
We hope you've been enjoying our creations this week. Be sure to stop at each blog and leave a comment for a chance to win some great prizes!



Happy Creating,
Louise

So nice to see a more masculine card, I am always looking for ideas. I will be checking into the 'embossing enamel', looks awesome.

Sandi Lou said...

Louise: was the clock stencilled onto acetate?

Louise said...

No, right onto the patterned paper then I added some distress ink around it before layering it onto another piece of patterned paper.
