Good morning!! The Dreamweaver Design team is still eagerly anticipating the arrival of CHA so we can start sharing the new Dreamweaver Stencil Designs. I can tell you, it will be worth the wait. Only one more week my friends!!
For todays sketch, I chose Tall Wheat, LL3008 that has been sitting on my desk for some time and I have NEVER used. Here in Montana, many gals have chose to use wheat stalks to decorate their home and make home décor. This stencil has actually been a really good seller for me in my sales territory.
I chose to use the Faux Cloisonné technique. Here are some simple instructions for you to follow so you can try.
1. Tape stencil to your paper to ensure that the stencil will not shift while coloring your image. Color your image with the desired coloring medium. I chose Versa magic Chalk Inks and Brilliance Pigment inks both by Tsukineko. I applied color using stenciling brushes. 2. Once you have completed your desired coloring, using a jumbo dauber, apply embossing ink over the colored image. Remove the stencil and apply Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel. I used Deep Impressions by Stampendous. 3. Heat enamel until melted. While the original enamel is still hot, apply another coat, shake off excess and heat the enamel. 4. The end result should be a smooth colored surface. You can continue to layer your UTEE until the surface is smooth. More layers will not damage your project. 5. Stamp sentiment and tie ribbon and embellishments on.
