Dreamweaver Stencils: Window on a World That Flutters

We are now at the grand finale of the February Flutters challenge over on the Dreamweaver Stencils' Dream It Up! blog. Hope you've had as much fun with it as we have! We've discovered that anything can flutter given enough wind! LOL.

My card features the newly released Sailboat (and yes, I have another sailboat card on the Dream It Up! blog today), with a bit of a mixed media approach. I wanted to attempt to try the Copic technique of "No lines coloring". With this technique, lines are stamped (in my case daubed) with a light ink (I used Memento London Fog). Then you go in and add coloring and shading with your Copic markers until the final appearance is of a painting or colored drawing. It was quite fun, and I love the result. I also added some clouds in the background by daubing more of the Memento inks in the background, using the Picasso tool's scalloped edge for the subtle shapes.

Recognize the "window"? This window is what happens when you've used the newly released Nested Frames dies to cut multiples out of a panel of cardstock. I had this saved in my "kibbles and bits" box, and was the perfect embellishment for this card...that, and the perfect sentiment from the Woodware Clear Magic "Patch a Flight" set.

The rest of the team have one last "flutter" to share with you, so check them out and share some love! Before you go, though, be sure to read the info below the link list. You might surprise yourself!

How would YOU like to be part of the Dream Team? We are having a team call beginning today, and all the info can be found on the Dream It Up! blog HERE!

This is such a cool technique Pam and it does look like water color! Beautiful. Love the 'window' frame in front too.
