Dreamweaver Stencils Dream Team Color Challenge

Good morning!!

Welcome to Dreamweaver Stencils Dream Team Color Challenge!!

Today the Dreamweaver Team is playing around with Black and White!! 

I created a card using Dreamweaver Pearlescent Embossing Paste and the Nativity (LL554) stencil.

Using removable tape, I adhered the metal stencil to cardstock and applied paste with a Palette Knife.

I smoothed the Pearlescent Paste with a Paste Spreader (LM2010).  Once the paste was dry (about 30 minutes), I stamped the sentiment, corner punched the cardstock and added some pearls.

Paste embossing is such a fun and easy technique.  If you’re interested in a PDF version of this technique, please email me (wendyjo72@gmail.com) and I would be happy to send it over to you.

This simple technique can be used with any metal stencil.   An easy technique for you to try while trying out for Dreamweaver Stencil’s Dream Team DT Call.  You can get all the details HERE.

Be sure to take a look at all the Designer’s blogs today.  You can see the full Blog Roll at the right of this post.  While your at it, run over to Facebook and “like” our new page.

It's beautiful, Wendy. Clean, simple and a very powerful image in black and white.

Beautifully simple, Wendy. Love the shimmer of the Pearlescent Paste. You have a pdf? If it's a tutorial, can you post on the FB page?

Nice, simple and pretty work. It is good to see that many of us were thinking Christmas in black and white. Thinking of you.
