Imagine Crafts New StazOn Pads from Tsukineko
Stencils and Dies Prize Package
Here's my creation for today:

I've moved myself away from the Radiant Neons for today, but they'll be baaaaack! Today I'm featuring the brand new Nest stencil from Dreamweaver...slightly larger than the original. I used my Tsukineko Splendor ink pads as a palette of gorgeous colors, and nice Dreamweaver stencil brushes to color the design. When working with several colors in a small space, it's best to have several of the smallest size brushes to avoid muddying up your inks and your project. Another fabulous tip is to use the Dreamweaver
Picasso tool (shown at left), to mask off areas as you work, and to use the small lines and dots to add color in small spaces. As a bonus, this tool is great for creating "clouds", and the sharper notches are great to use as a tool for distressing paper! So...back to the card. Before I'd ink-stenciled the nest, I had placed my kraft cardstock panel in my spraying  box, and used Memories Mists Mango Lemonade color over the panel, actually two panels...one for the nest, and one for the background on the card. These mists dry quickly, so I was able to follow that up by spraying the Imagine Crafts irRESISTbles in Bronze through the Dreamweaver Hexagons stencil on one panel, and just a light spritz over the other. These leave behind a nice shimmer, and a bit of dimension.

Once the nest was ink-stenciled, I added a word from the Bird Words stencil, tore around the edges, and matted and tore a blue panel for contrast. The rest of the card features the other sprayed panel, layered with a strip of May Arts Webbed Weave ribbon, and two of the Dreamweaver Leafy Branch Die-cuts, also spritzed in Bronze. The entire card has been ink-distressed for almost the appearance of having  been found hidden under the shrubbery.


Just Imagine the possibilities of what everyone else has created!
