I ♥ Stamps & Stencils!!!


Good morning!!

Yesterday in my Dreamweaver Stencils post, I had mentioned my  new found love for the Dreamweaver Plum Branch stencil.  Today I am here with a card that I created using my new favorite stencil and some Stampendous stamps!!


I started by stamping Stampendous Music Score (CRR103)stamp onto cream cardstock in brown ink.  I tore a slight edge around the Music Score. 

Using Memories Die Ink, I stamped the I Love Paris (CRP144) on vellum and heat set with my heat tool.  I like to use Memories Ink on vellum, because it dries nicely and the stamp doesn’t slip like other inks do on vellum.  I then layered my Plum Branch stencil (LL535) on the side of the focal image and paste embossed with Pearlescent Embossing Paste.  Once the paste was dry (about an hour), I masked off the Plum Branch stencil so I could airbrush color onto the embossed area were I wanted.  I continually moved the mask until the image was the color I wanted.

I added a bit of color onto the flowers on the focal image, but had to be careful, Memories Ink doesn’t play real nice with alcohol ink markers.

I torn a skinny edge around the vellum sheet and adhered to the front of the music score background with some twine.

I love how it turned out.   It was so fun to make a card, just because I wanted too!!

Thanks for taking a look today!!!

Nice mix of the two techniques! So pretty, pretty, pretty. Nice to know the alcohol inks work with the pearlescent paste too.
