One Flaming Frosty Sleigh!

I'm so excited! This week we have our very first Dreamweaver Stencil's Dream Team blog hop! Starting on September 30th and going through October 2nd, each day a few of our team will be featuring their amazing talents using amazing stencils and products from Dreamweaver Stencils. Not only will you have the opportunity to learn some fun new tips & techniques, but by following the directions posted on the Dreamweaver Stencils "Dream It Up!" blog, you have the chance to win your favorite stencils and some additional goodies! My particular posting day is scheduled for October 2nd, so come hopping by on that day, but don't forget the previous two days with the other gals. We are spreading the love out over three days so that you have the time to thoroughly check out what we've been up to.
This posting of mine showcases one of the new stencils for the holidays, "Large Sleigh", which happens to have the sentiment as part of the design. This was paste-embossed on blue cardstock and when dry, the stencil was placed on again. I used removable tape to mask off the areas that I didn't want air-brushed. I used a piece of transparency and cut out a flame stencil. Using this and my Copic Airbrushing System, I did a flame job on Santa's sleigh. This technique is super easy, and could be done with actual flame colors as well. A sprinkling of snowflake sequins was the perfect embellishment. Pretty frosty, wouldn't you say?
