Dreamweaver Stencils: Magical Mystery...Mouse?

I suppose that you are viewing my blog, and thinking to yourself, "Hmmm. Is Pam confused (again)? This is not a Dreamweaver post. I see nothing from Dreamweaver on here!", and you'd be wrong. Bwhahahahaha.

Let's face it. We all have far more craft products than we can really use, but we can justify it far better when we mix up the elements...kind of like a crafty witch with her cauldron. Eye of newt, tongue of spider, Clearsnap ink, Stampendous Mouse, aaaaaand...Dreamweaver Leafless Tree diecut and Picasso tool. You see, the best potions are a mix of more than one element, and this card is no different.

I used the Dreamweaver Picasso tool to stencil my cloudy background using a sponge dauber and Clearsnap Mixed Media Jasmine and Pewter inks. I punched a circle for the moon and inserted it behind a cloud puff. The designer paper that I used already had an amber glow at the bottom which worked nicely as the base for my Monica Mouse in her butterfly costume. She was stamped and colored with Copics before being cut out and adhered with foam tape, along with her pumpkin pail. A stencil brush with plenty of Mixed Media Noir ink, added to the spooky feel, but my die cut black Leafless Tree was the ultimate in eerie additions.

So, my pretty, remember the next time you pull out your stamps, and inks, and newts, and spiders...some Dreamweaver Stencils will fit in very nicely!

Now that I've "tricked" you a bit, be off to the land of treats, or maybe not...

You make me laugh! You should be a writer! This is adorable, that mouse is wonderful and the black tree definitely gives just the right touch of spookiness!

Awesome job! Saw this card on the Stampendous blog and had to come on over. Your mouse coloring is amazing and I love the 'magical' scene you put him in. Great card. Thanks for sharing.
