Dreamweaver Stencils "Get Inky" September Challenge

Welcome to Dreamweaver Stencils Dream Team Thursday!!!

This month the Dream Team is "Getting Inky" with our stencils!!!  Yep, any kind of ink, sprays, ink pads, markers, you name it, we are using it.

 I used a new stencil released in July from Dreamweaver Stencils called Steampunk Clock (LX7018).  I started by paste embossing the stencil first with Matte Black Embossing Paste and once that was dry ,replacing the clean, dry stencil over the dry paste and applying Crackle Paste over the top.

When the Crackle Paste was dry, I added layers of Distress Inks with a application tool.  The Crackle Paste dries white so the added color takes to it very well.  Again, I placed the clean, dry stencil over the dry paste and applied color over the top of the stencil, so only the embossed area would receive the color.

I recently bought a fun item at a local fiber artist at my local scrapbook store, The Scrapbook Hideaway.

The natural fibers are hand died.   I think they are just neat.
I was finally able to use them on a project I felt worthy of using them on!!
Here is a closer look...

The dimensions of my card are 4.75 x 5.75, so I can mail this in a 5 x 7 padded envelope.
Dreamweaver Stencils new LX stencils have revolutionized the size cards I create.

This month we will again choose two winners. One for best interpretation of the challenge and one for best usage of Dreamweaver Stencil products. And the prize will be any Dreamweaver Stencil of your choosing.
