Dreamweaver and Quietfire Design: Day Two

Get ready for an amazing week of Awesome in Autumn! This week we are playing with the Quietfire Design team, and are so excited to play with their amazing images and sentiments. In their beautiful calligraphic style, their quotes and thoughts are the perfect addition to our Dreamweaver designs. Follow along with us, and leave your comments for an opportunity to win one of two wonderful prize packages:


Here's what I've created for today's post:



I played with my new resist technique for this card. I spritzed the Dreamweaver Maple Branch stencil with Beacon Fast Finish Decoupage Medium (which I poured into a spray bottle), and placed a panel of glossy cardstock face down on top to transfer the design, and the medium. Let it dry for a few minutes, and then the fun begins. I rubbed various Memento inks over the surface. The leaf portions had no medium on them for the most part, so they took the most color. The background took very little, but enough to add interest.

In keeping with our Art Glitter collaboration for the month of September, I used a glue pen to then apply lines of Sand glitter over the panel, and as part of the striping on this luscious ribbon from May Arts. For more sparkle, I placed a strip of adhesive tape along the bottom and covered it in Canadian Blue glitter, and used the same to cover the head of my Dreamweaver Embellishment pin.

After the fun I had playing with all of these supplies, the accompanying Quietfire Design sentiment stamped on a tag was the perfect finishing touch. Everyone should "Create Without Limits"!
