|Imagine Crafts New StazOn Pads from Tsukineko|
|Stencils and Dies Prize Package|
Those of you that know me, know that when creating I love the opportunity to work with the positive and the negative of a design. Dreamweaver has just released a DIE to go with the Stylized Dahlia design, and oh, did I have fun with it!
I started with a panel of white watercolor paper. I smooshed three of the Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko Radiant Neon inks over the panel, and then sprayed over the surface with their Ink Potion No. 9 and let it do its magic. When dry, I sprayed over the surface with their irRESISTible Texture spray in Lulu Lavender. This is not just a mist, it actually leaves texture! Very cool, and easy to mix with my favorite Dreamweaver Memories Mists on a project!
I used the new Stylized Dahlia DIE to cut out the design from the center of my panel. Here is where the two cards begin...
I pasted the dahlia in Matte Black on black cardstock, as well as the sentiment. When dry, I adhered all the parts of the die cut flower on the surface. The paste added to the dimension. I placed the sentiment stencil over the surface, inked with Versamark ink with a sponge dauber, and applied a few colors of Metallic F/X powders. The card base was lovely Bazzill cardstock, machine-embossed with the Dreamweaver Large Scales. Just a couple of scraps of May Arts ribbon, and a few adhesive pearls finished it off.
Nothing negative about this! The punched out panel still had tons of gorgeous color and speckles that were dying to be used! I sprayed the back with spray adhesive and adhered it to a panel of acetate. This was popped up with foam tape over the top of a panel of DCWV Gauze Paper, and layered onto the card, and embellished with only a few rhinestones. Love the color, texture and dimension!
Just Imagine the possibilities of what everyone else has created!
