Sneek Peek

I'm back from vacation and excited to now be able to share with you a sneek peek of one of Dreamweaver Stencil's beautiful new stencils, the Black-eyed Susan (LJ902). It is gorgeous! For this card I first dry-embossed the image (I used my Big Shot, then made it even deeper with a stylus) on white linen cardstock. With the stencil on the embossed image, I used small stencil brushes and Brilliance inks to brush color on the image. Before mounting the image on the yellow cardstock I went around the edge of the white cardstock with brown ink. After it was mounted I opened up a couple of bags of tea (it had been in my cupboard for longer than I want to admit) and used glue to put the tea in the center of the flowers. I only had a white ribbon in my ribbon box so I used a COPIC marker to color the ribbon to match the flowers. As a final touch, I also stenciled one of the flowers on the envelope.
I love how this turned out and hope you do to. Another sneek peek tomorrow!
Happy creating,

Love your card, Louise. I submitted a similar design except I used Flowersoft for the flower centers!

I love this stencil and the look is pure summer! I have never put a Dreamweaver stencil through the Sizzix. How is this done? (or did I misunderstand???). I would love to try this technique.
