I just love this Dreamweaver Sm Elephant stencil (LL3042). It makes a wonderful Baby Shower card and can be done in any color palette. I'm going to a Baby Shower this weekend and they know they are having a boy, so this was perfect timing for me!
I've been preparing some class samples for a workshop I'm going to be doing for Door County Rubber Stamps in June and it just so happened that I had some left over paste that was perfect for the "Sludge technique" Elephant. Whenever you have left over paste that you have colored, save it to an empty paste jar (or any container that seals well). It will keep quite a while in the right container. Anyway...I had some left over blue (Regular Paste with Metallic FX Navajo Sky added), and matte copper (Regular Paste and Copper Paste mixed in equal amounts). Add alternating dollops of paste along the edge of your paste spreader (LM2010), swirl them together a little with the tip of a palette knife, then paste your image. Do I even have to tell you to save the left over! They turn out different each time. This one is a little more "stripey" than "marbley", but it worked great with the striped paper I chose. I can never throw left over paste away, so Sludge pasting is the perfect solution. Beautiful papers also help tie everything together, as does the fabulous ribbon from May Arts.
