Dreamweaver Patina Peacock card

Here's another post using new toys from Dreamweaver Stencils. This great stencil was embossed by running through my Big shot machine. I rubbed and sponged various inks, and sprinkled a bit of white embossing powder which I heat embossed, over the surface to achieve a patina finish like you might see on weathered copper ceiling tiles. The panel was mounted on a peachy/copper cardstock panel and then to a deep teal card.
The sentiment came from the Stampendous "Peacock Beauty" clear set and attached with a swirl clip that mimics the swirls in this beautiful stencil design. What I love about stenciling is all the varieties of techniques and looks that you can achieve with them. Check out the Dreamweaver Stencils website for all the great tips as well as amazing samples. While you are at it, check out the new Dreamweaver blogsite as well, featuring the Dreamweaver Stencils "Dream Team" (which includes me...woo hoo!) led by our fearless leader, Lynell Harlow, the creative force behind these fabulous designs aaaaand all the yummy blogs from our team.Okay, you've been inspired now...so go stencil!
