Dream Scheme Thursday

This week is a color challenge from Lee. LOVE the colors - Lime Green and Gray. I can't wait until I can get to my "stuff" again so I can create some of the ideas that are running around in my head!

But until then............

Here is my current creation

First I pasted LJ911 Gears with Dreamweaver white matte paste on dark grey paper and again on off white paper.

Once dry, I stenciled silver pigment ink from the Splendor Antique pad onto the image on grey paper. Then I stenciled one gear on the off white paper with the lime green pigment ink from the Splendor Magic pad. This one I cut out. I wanted a small silver brad to attach the lime green gear and the ribbon to the front of the card, but I could only find a white thumb tack. The tack surface was rubbed with the silver pigment also.

This angle makes it easier to see the silver pigment.

Once assembled, the silver half pearls were attached to the center of some of the gears.

I am sure you will find many interesting interpretations of the color theme on my fellow Dream Teamers blogs. Check them out!! See you next week.....
