The Dream Team is ready to inspire you with some extra fun this week! Not only are we posting with the Flora and Fauna challenge, we are introducing you to our THREE NEWLY RELEASED DESIGNS...our Owl Buddy, the Open Sheep, and the art nouveau-inspired Heron, which you had a sneak peek at two weeks ago on the Dream It Up! blog. Three lucky commenters on the Dream Team's posts will receive one of these designs to be announced on the Dream It Up! blog next week. Tell us in your comment which technique YOU would use with your favorite of these new designs.
Here is what I created this week...
Open Sheep, which I have filled in with the Swirls stencil using Clearsnap Jasmine White Mixed Media ink. The background was created with the same stencil with black on white, and "clouds" were created by using a portion of the sheep stencil for the fluffy outline. The sentiment was part Stampendous stamp, and part me trying to mimic the font. I ended up having to add some extra curliques to the stamped word so they both would match a bit better.
Heron design...very art-nouveau-esque. I created a background of bright colors by spraying rubbing alcohol over a piece of Fabriano Watercolor paper with a heavy texture, and then adding drops of Dreamweaver Color Solutions Alcohol Inks. The result was bright and vibrant, and the perfect contrast for the glossy black pasted image. One simple thought from the Bird Words stencil was just enough...especially pasted in glossy white, and colored over the top with Cosmos Pink Color Solutions.
