Dreamweaver Thursday: Celebrating the Reason for the Season

You see those three wise men on camel-back being led by that beautiful star to the city shown below? They were being led there for a reason...and that reason was the birth of the child on which so many religions base their faith...and the reason for the Christmas season.

Over the years, people have incorporated their own beliefs and traditions into the celebration of what this child represented for all...HOPE.

The Stampendous/Dreamweaver team have been sharing their own thoughtful creations in this celebration, and for today, I'm sharing this piece that I made for the July 2015 Stampendous catalog.

The base is a 12 inch square Bazzill Board in black. VersaMark has been dabbed around the edges, and then sprinkled with Aged Gold Embossing Enamel before heating to add a shiny and textured bit of dimension.

Adhered to the top of this, is a panel of Bazzill black canvas cardstock, on which the side has been ink-stenciled with a large
stencil brush and VersaMark ink, before brushing Sapphire Metallic F/X mica powder over the surface, and adding a few self-adhesive crystals and a border strip of ribbon.

The final panel features the Dreamweaver Peace on Earth all-in-one stencil design, paste-embossed in Matte Black on the same black canvas cardstock. When dry, the stencil was place over the design again, inked with VersaMark, and brushed with Sapphire and Goldfinch mica powders, before being popped up with foam tape over the previous layers. The end result is a beautiful reminder to all that can be enjoyed each year.

This is lovely! I love that it can be left out all year long too! I am thinking that I need to get this stencil and make something similar! I also know a few people who would love to display something like this in their home. Thank you for the inspiration!
