Dreamweaver Stencil's Dream Team Thursday!!!

Good morning!!
Welcome to Dream Scheme Thursday!!!
Our challenge this week is Designer Choice or Free Theme!!

I had a bit of fun with Dreamweaver Stencils new Color Solutions Artist Grade Alcohol Ink!
I used a "smoosh" technique, at least I think that is what it is called!

I put a few drops of Iceberg, Blue Velvet and Sizzling Silver on my teflon craft sheet. I then layed my Glossy card stock , glossy side down in the inks and swirled the paper over the top of the inks. When I lifted off the paper the bluish, silvery swirl was present on the paper.
Once the inks were dry ( I sat them aside for 5 minutes or so), I pasted the Sleigh and Reindeer (LL556) stencil with Glossy Black Embossing Paste. While the paste was still wet, I sprinkled a bit of Moonstone Metallic FX Powder and silver glitter over the top of the wet paste and set it aside to dry.
Once the paste was dry, I removed all the excess glitter and Metallic FX with a Swiffer duster (my secret weapon). I sprinkled a few bits of Chunky White Embossing Enamel and heat embossed quickly from underneath the paper. I stamped Christmas Greetings with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with White Embossing Powder.

I had fun with it at least!

Cool card Wendy, I really like how the Moonstone FX and silver glitter work together on the sleigh! Very pretty.

"Smooshing" is a fun way to create backgrounds with alcohol inks and you've done a great job with it. It's a perfect fit for the image and sentiment. Absolutely stunning!

Beautiful! Love the deep swirly blue, the flecks of white, and Santa's sparkly sleigh! I finally bought one of those Ranger mats, so I have to try your technique with the Color Solutions!
