Good morning! I love Thursdays because I get to see the awesome creativity that all of my Dreamweaver Design sisters have been up too and I get to share with you what I have been up too!!!
For our sketch challenge this week, I made a card with a very simple pasting technique that a beginner could perfect on their first day of stenciling. It is called the Sculpted Paste technique. It is very simple. Using Regular Embossing Paste, I layered the paste, so that when it was dry, I could color it and the layers of paste would have some depth and dimension.
I used the Horse (LM167) stencil. Once the paste was dry, I replaced the clean and dry stencil and colored it with Distress Inks, Brushed Corduroy, Frayed Burlap, and Walnut Stain.
I left the stencil in place and with a large sponge dauber, applied Palette Glue to the entire surface. Using a stencil brush and the stippling technique, I applied some Amber Glow Metallic FX to the top to give it a pretty shimmer (hard to see in the photo).
Here is picture of the color of Amber Glow
Here is the FAB sketch that we followed today by our DT coordinator Deborah March.
