Showers of Showers! Week 4

Ever use the expression, "When it rains, it pours"? This does not have to be a bad thing, does it? For the month of April, the Dream Team are featuring "Showers of Showers" as our theme. As usual, we'd love for you to play along. Just link your creation on the Dream It Up!blog for a chance to win the stencil of your choice...bonus chances for incorporating Dreamweaver and/or Stampendous in your design. Here's what I'm showering you with this week...
"May you be showered with happiness"
Letterpress technique
The Letterpress technique is so easy and creates a beautiful look. It just needs two simple steps.
First: ink the back of the stencil with Delicata ink Golden Glitz from Tsukineko (any color works)
Second: Place the stencil ink side up on the large platform of a die cut machine, place a piece of cardstock carefully on the stencil, then the rubber embossing mat, and finally, two plastic cutting plates. Run through the machine to transfer the ink to the paper. Of course, a beautiful ribbon from May Arts is always the perfect finishing touch.

Our "B" wants to "shower" you with lots more ideas, so be sure to stop over and leave them a "shower" of comments!

Happy Creating,

Wow...I would not have guessed Delicata Gold, but that is stunning...especially with that choice of ribbon Louise!
