Black and White and a Peek of New
I'm doing the happy dance as I post this week. Those of the Dream Team were finally given the go-ahead to share peeks of the brand new designs from Dreamweaver Stencils. All of them have been soooo much fun to work with, really challenging the creative mojo in so many ways.
Since we are working with the May challenge...black and white with a pop and/or graduation, I chose to show off this new fascinatingly elegant design, "Art Nouveau Background", a dramatically art deco feel, with a framed square toward the top of the design. This square provides the perfect opportunity to use the Alphabet Monograms to personalize each card.
The new background was Glossy Black Embossing Pasted on white cardstock. The monogram was Glossy White Embossing Pasted on a black square of cardstock. The pop of color added obviously was red...a mat of thin red cardstock, a beautiful organza bow, and a few rhinestones for sparkle. Leave off the bow and rhinestones, and this could easily go in a masculine direction. I have so many ideas of ways to use this new background...so keep watching for more fun projects.
Speaking of ideas, check what the rest of the Dream Team has been inspired to create for this month's challenge:
