Dreamweaver Stencil Winter CHA ♥Sneak Peek♥

 

It is that time of year again!!  The Winter Craft and Hobby Association Trade Show.  Everyone that loves crafting knows this is the time of year that each company releases their new product for 2012.

Today I have a sneak peek of two new Dreamweaver Stencils, Retro Sitting Cat (LL3020) and Waves and Dots (LX7012) background stencil.

I had a great time using the two techniques I have done.  The background is a Faux Letterpress background.  I spritzed the background stencil with multiple colors of Memory Mist Inks, placed a piece of watercolor paper over the inked stencil, placed the rubber Stampin’ Details mat over the watercolor paper, and two acrylic mats and rolled through the die cutting machine.   Pull the paper off of the stencil.  Where your color was applied on the stencil, it will now have transferred to your watercolor paper.

The second technique is the Metallic FX technique.  I pasted embossed the Retro Sitting Cat stencil with Glossy Black Embossing Paste.  While the paste is still wet, sprinkle Metallic FX Mica Powders over the wet paste with a stencil brush or Q-Tip.  Set aside and let dry.

Here is a close up look at the technique…
