It's Dream Scheme Thursday

I lost the month of June! Sitting in a classroom (actually several) seemed endless, yet the month went by REALLY fast. I'm finally out of training and into my new job. Now I just have to get into my new routine!

What better way to begin than to be creative!!
I believe this is a free week so........... in honor of my new state of residence, I have decided to use two cards I made in a class that Lynell taught at Stamper's Warehouse a couple of years ago.

I chose these two cards since I have seen Elk in the canyon I drove through to get to SLC, UT for training and a Moose actually ran up my dad's driveway a couple of weeks ago.

This technique is the same as the total glitter and tac paper technique EXCEPT - you use flocking instead of glitter on the main image.

Start with a piece of Tac, double stick tape cut approximately the same size as the stencil you are going to use. Remove one side and attach to a piece of cardstock.
"Soap" the back of your stencil. Remove the other protective cover of the tack paper and set your stencil on top of it.
Cover the stencil area with flocking (I used Dark Brown, Tan and Yellow on my two projects). Tap off excess. Remove stencil and cover remaining Tac paper with ultra fine Prisma glitter.

and "Ta-Da" a woodland creature (or whatever you choose to do).
I had great fun going through my samples. It has inspired me to do new ones! Stay tuned next week for something all new.
Don't forget to visit the rest of the Dream Team Blogs for more inspiring creations!
Until next week........ Happy Stenciling!!
