Mine aren't exactly "frilly" this week, but I think they are "Fabulous"! When I first saw the new Frigate stencil (LG763), I thought, "What in the world am I going to do with that!" But when given a challenge of something outside my comfort zone, I like to think I can create something presentable! I had so much fun designing my sample card for Dreamweaver, I decided to create a whole class using the Frigate! I'll be teaching it at Memories and Beyond in Downers Grove, IL on Tuesday, March 3rd, click here for the details. Here's what I've been playing with:
|LG763 Frigate stencil, Glossy Black Embossing Paste on white cardstock, let dry, cut out bottom edge|
LX7029 Spiral dots, stenciled with blue inks using a stencil brush, on white cardstock
May Arts braided twine tied in sailor's knots
So then I decided to design a 3 card class around this stencil. Here are the cards we'll be creating on the 3rd:
|Stenciled using Memento Inks and stencil brushes|
LL332 Picasso was used to create the "clouds"
|Gold Leaf Technique using Metallic Gold Embossing Paste as the base|
|Matte Black Embossing Paste with Metallic F/X Powders|
