Dreamweaver Stencils Goes Green for February

     Did you miss me last week? I missed you! As soon as I returned home from CHA last week, I found out that the antenna for our internet had fried, and they couldn't replace it for four frustrating. Amazing how much we rely on the internet now, isn't it?
     The Dreamweaver Stencil's Dream Team monthly challenge for February is to feature St. Patrick's Day and/or the color green. My card highlights the Triangle Knot, a Celtic design which I machine embossed into the Core'dinations' cardstock and sanded lightly to emphasize the design. I further highlighted it by doing a variation of
double-glitter technique. Instead of doing all glitter, I used some of the green Stampee foil on the stencil image, as well as flecks of it here and there in the background. The rest of the areas were filled in with Copper and Multi Crystal Glitter. "Celebrate" was paste-embossed on a scrap of copper metallic cardstock and matched the angels of the other portions of the card layout. A few rhinestones were added for a touch of bling.
     I sure hope that you will play along with us this month...remember your design does not have to be St. Patrick's day themed, it can just be green (literally and figuratively!), plus you can play along as many times as you'd like! Just link your creation from your blog or online gallery site (Split Coast Stampers, Paper Craft Planet, etc.) to the Mr. Linky on the Dream It Up! blog, or just send us your creation for us to post for you to: Dreamweaver Stencils, 1335 Cindee Lane, Colton, CA 92324. You have until the end of February to play along for a possibility to win one of two sets of these stencils:

This very cool! Really like the way you used the foil.

I had to read the post to figure out what technique you used on that foil and double glitter triangle. It was very cool and interesting.

Terrece said...

WOW Pam, very out of the box. Really like all the different looks. You are an inspiration!
