Dreamweaver Stencils: Feeling Old and Blue...in a Good Way!
Wasn't last week's collaboration hop with Imagine Crafts a blast? If you are wondering if you were one of our winners, check the Dream It Up! Tuesday post this week.
This week, the Dream Team is back to playing with our June challenge, "Old, New, Borrowed, Blue"...not necessarily wedding, but creations incorporating one or all of these concepts. My card
today is a bit of the old and a bit of the blue.
Featuring the Dreamweaver Floral with Dots stencil, I ink-stenciled the design in blue and green on kraft cardstock using the Tsukineko Splendor Circus ink pad. As the ink is pigment, I was able to pour Ultra Thick Embossing Powder (UTEE) over the surface and heat in layers, adding clear ink in between each layer until thick enough to make me happy. When cool, I bent the panel to crack the embossed areas. Here's where the "old" comes in.
I placed my cleaned stencil back over the surface of the design, and daubed Black StazOn ink over the surface, pushing the ink into the cracks. Then I took a paper towel and wiped away the excess ink from the surface before removing the stencil. The panel was ink-distressed around the edges and layered over a gorgeous iridescent ribbon from May Arts and a green panel with a crisp white base card.
How would you play with this concept? Show us by linking your creation to the Inlinkz tool on the Dream It Up! blog. Meanwhile, take a peek at what the "A" team has to show this week:
