Dreamweaver and Woodware Day Five: Prince of Peace

All of this week, the Dream Team and the Woodware UK teams are celebrating the release of the new holiday designs from Dreamweaver Stencils. Of course, no celebration is complete without prizes...and there are some fabulous ones for those commenting on both sides of the "pond". 

Each team will be providing the opportunity to win four prize packages of stencil designs, perfect for the holidays. Just leave your comments each day on each players' post as well as the Dream It Up! and Woodware UK blogs, and the Dreamweaver and Woodware Facebook pages. Two random commentors  will be chosen from the batch of weekday posts, one each from the DW and WW Facebook pages, and from the big hop on Saturday...from each side of the pond!* That's a total of eight prize packages up for grabs! Here's what you could win:

And now for something completely different:

You have to admit this card is very different from my post yesterday! So you've seen The Zentangled version of the new Peace on Earth design, but this one is a bit different. I used the ink-transfer technique by spraying three Memories Mists inks (Blueberry Shake, Strawberry Daiquiri, and Mango Lemonade) directly onto the back of the Peace on Earth stencil. Placing this on the base plate of my Big Shot machine, I then layered on top: 1) ivory cardstock panel, 2) rubber embossing mat, 3) TWO clear plates...and ran it all through the machine to emboss the design into the cardstock as well as transfer the inked design.

Then I placed the Prince of Peace stencil over the panel, and using a large stencil brush, I applied Splendor Antique ochre ink over the original panel.

The final step was to paste-emboss in Copper the Peace on Earth portion of the stencil for more texture. The rest was just layering and adding some ribbon.

Don't forget to leave me some holiday cheer as you move on to the other players for today:

Remember to follow along with the challenges on the Dream It Up! and Woodware UK blogs for more prize opportunities, and more crafty inspiration, as well as "liking" DW and WW on Facebook.
*Winners selected must be from USA/Canada/UK only.

Thank you for your description of the process. I've been intriqued by the ink transfer technique, and I love the dry embossing and stenciling you added.
