Dreamweaver Stencils Festive Fall Challenge

Good morning.

Welcome to another Thursday Dreamweaver Stenciling project and the introduction of a new challenge from Dreamweaver Stencils.

Today we are creating a Festive Fall Card using Dreamweaver Stencils Color Solutions Inks and Embossing Paste.

I paste embossed the tree stencil with Glossy White Embossing Paste, set it aside to dry (about 20 minutes).  In the mean time, I prepared my Color Solutions Inks and cleaned my stencil and dried it well.

I replaced the tree stencil over the dried paste and added a base of Citron Color Solutions Inks on the Glossy Paste.
*It is important to place the clean and dry stencil over the dried paste to protect your paper from getting ink on it.
When I had my base layer of ink applied, I dropped one or two drops of ink on my craft mat, picked it up with a Q-Tip and colored each "leaf" of the tree a different color  of ink.  The colors I chose were Citron, Darkest Brown, Paprika, Aspen Leaf and Pumpkin.  I also used Color Solutions Cleaner/Thinner for a few colors as well.

Here is a video I created using Dreamweaver Color Solutions Alcohol Inks with Embossing Paste.

My card base is the dry embossed Fall Trees Stencil (LJ849).  I placed my stencil on my card base and secured with a piece of removable tape.

The above photo shows the layering process for the Sizzix Big Shot.
I placed my stencil down on the base platform (Tab 1 and 2 removed), paper with a spritz of rubbing alcohol, Stamping Details Rubber mat, and two acrylic plates.  This sandwich works every time with the Big Shot and Vagabond.

Once the background was embossed, while the stencil was still in place, I spritzed Bright Copper Memory Mist onto the card stock.

Man, Wendy, you have been doing the most creatively cool things lately! I love how you colored each "leaf" individually, and used the Bare Trees background.
