Dream Team Thursday with a *NEW* Dreamweaver Stencil product!!!

Good morning!!

Today I am so excited!!! I spent all day yesterday playing around with a *FUN* new product that Dreamweaver Stencils just came out with. Color Solutions Artist Grade Alcohol Inks.

These aren’t just your regular run of the mill alcohol inks. They are a deep, vibrant colors, that can be lightened and thinned by adding a Alcohol Ink Thinning and Cleaning Solution also by Dreamweavers. These alcohol inks have more “open” time, meaning that the ink will dry slower and give you more time to add layers or thin out your color if you decide. There’re Gold and Silver Metallic colors that are rich and SHINY!!!

I will be posting a tutorial next week here and you never know…maybe a video!!

Today I used Color Solutions Iceburg and Sizzling Silver on top of Glossy White Embossing Paste…

Dreamweaver102011

I started by paste embossing Snowflakes( LJ819), Gothic Snowflake (LL396) and Antler Snowflake (LL399) stencils with Glossy White Embossing Paste.

Once the paste was dry, which was about 30 minutes, I replaced my clean, dry stencil on top of the dried paste. I applied Iceburg and Sizzling Silver Color Solution with an applicator and a piece of felt. I daubed Color Solution over the Glossy White Paste, through the metal stencil. I repeated the last step with my large snowflakes.

Once I reached my desired color, I removed the stencil and set aside the front card panel for a few minutes to make sure it was dried completely.

I adhered my larger snowflakes to the front of the card panel and attached a ribbon.

Do you use alcohol inks? If so, you would love to work with these fabulous deep, vibrant colors!!

Beautiful card. Great job introducing the new inks. Did you really use Sugar Plum? It looks more like the Iceberg on my monitor. Either way, very wintery!
