Dreamweaver and Quietfire Design: Grand Finale!


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:

This card features the Dreamweaver Leafless Tree, spritzed with a resist medium on top of the stencil, and a piece of glossy white cardstock placed face down on top to transfer the medium and the design. I let that dry for a few minutes, and then rubbed various Memento inks over the surface...Rich Cocoa, Teal Zeal, Nautical Blue, Potter's Clay, and Bamboo Leaves. The tree took the most color, and the spattered background took just enough to be interesting. I used the Treasured Memory sentiment (love, love, love) from Quietfire Design once again (when you have the perfect sentiment, why waste it?), and stamped and embossed it in Stampendous Bark Embossing Powder on torn vellum. With a fine glue pen, I was able to add a bit of Blue Water Art Glitter for a hint of sparkle.
