Dreamweaver Thursday with Dreamweaver Doubles Day!

Dreamweaver Thursday has become Dreamweaver Double Days this week, so if you've missed any of the previous days (no post on Tuesday), I suggest you head back after today's link list to the Stampendous Blog for double the samples, and video tutorials to double the fun!

My post today is a variation on another cool technique with Dreamweaver paste called "Sludge Pasting". This is a great way to use up dabs of paste in different  colors that you just couldn't bring yourself to throw away. You don't mix the colors exactly, but you allow them to merge into each other for an ombré or marbled look. Of course, you want to consider the color wheel while doing this, or the result could be mud...not a good look.

My variation on this is that I mixed a bit of Pumpkin and Cosmo Pink Color Solutions inks into a dab of Glossy White Embossing Paste and placed some on the edge of my paste spreader along with a dab of the Translucent Embossing Paste. As  I spread the paste over the Daisies Background and the Stylized Dahlia designs, the colors and the transparency merged slightly. The result reminds me of slightly opaque glass. 

The only embellishments necessary were a few matching brad fasteners, and some scallop-edged velveteen ribbon from May Arts.


I wonder what the rest of team has been doing double duty to show off to you? Let's see...
