Welcome to Dream Scheme Thursday!!!
Our Dreamweaver Stencil challenge for you this week is a sketch challenge!!
Here is my take on Kim’s sketch…
Here is the sketch …
While the paste was still wet, I sprinkled transparent glitter over the top. The glitter will stick to the embossing powder as it dries.
I chose to emboss 6 x 6 sheet of paper, because this stencils dimensions are 5.5 x 5.5. I have quite a bit extra for a few more Christmas cards.
While my backgrounds were drying, I “slathered” the back of Candles (LM 119) with Hawaiian Coconut Soap to prevent the stencil from sticking to the double sided adhesive paper that I attached it too. Once I had my stencil in place, I started placing the desired colors of glitter where I wanted it on the focal image.
Once I had all of my desired colors in place, I cleaned up the area of excess glitter with a Glitter Magnet. I didn’t want to have any excess “glitters” lying around, they would adhere to the exposed area of the adhesive paper once I removed it from the stencil.
I covered the entire piece of Double Sided Adhesive Paper with Transparent Glitter. Once I had desired coverage, I used the glitter magnet again over the image to clear the colored glitters.
I matted my "Double Glittered Candle” on a few background pieces of cardstock, cut my background papers to the desired size and adhered them to the card base. I stamped Season’s Greetings onto a tag and adhered it to the base of the card with ribbon.
Last, I adhered my focal image with dimensional stickers.
It seems that I wrote a bunch of steps, but both of these techniques are very easy.
We hope you play along with our Dream Team this week and link your creations to Dream It Up. We can’t wait to see what you create!!
