Get Inky with Stencils!

Welcome to week three of "Get Inky with Stencils". This is our challenge this month for the Dreamweaver Stencils Design Team and it has been a lot of fun!
This week I want to share a card that has been in my photo albums on the right side, but you may have missed the instructions for it.  It is a favorite of mine so I hope you enjoy it!

Here are the simple steps to creating this:
  • Use Cut 'n' Dry foam to rouge Distress Inks (Scattered Straw, Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky) on a piece of 90 lb. watercolor paper (I love the texture of watercolor paper)
  • Place the Branch with berries stencil (LJ900) coming in at an angle from one bottom corner, tape in place with removable tape
  • Use a small stencil brush to color the berries with Distress Ink Chipped Sapphire.
  • Turn the stencil over and bring it in from the other bottom corner, and add color to that side of the card
  • Clean and dry the stencil
  • Lay the stencil across the center of the colored image and tape in place with removable tape
  • Use a paste spreader to apply a coat of Glossy White Embossing Paste across the stencil
  • Remove the stencil and immediately sprinkle the wet paste with crystal glitter
  • Clean and dry the stencil
  • Once the paste is dry, you can add a little Chipped Sapphire around the design
  • Use a COPIC marker to color a white 3" embellishment pin (also from Dreamweaver) a matching blue shade
  • Mount into a beautiful card! The background paper was just a piece I had in my stash, but it worked perfectly for this card
Be sure to stop over at the other team member blogs, and remember, if you submit your own creation on the DREAM it UP! blog you might win a great prize! If you don't have a way to link your creation, just send a picture of it to and she will post it for you! Good luck!
 Happy Creating,

Such a soft wintery look on this card.
