Dream Scheme Thursday


This week we have a sketch from Kim. I immediately knew what I wanted to do when I saw it......I just wasn't sure how I was going to do it. I don't know about you, but sometimes I just can't get the idea in my head to come out of my hands.

This is Kim's sketch...
Kim's sketch lends itself to SSOOOOO many ways to create a card.
I decided to use the new Artist Grade Alcohol Inks "Color Solution" from Dreamweaver. The colors are beautiful. They are like potato can't have just one. I definitely have to have them ALL!

I decided to use the Cathedral Window stencils, both large and small.

I used White Glossy paste and the LM2010 Large Paste Spreader. It works GREAT with the larger stencils to get your paste on even and with one swipe!
After that dried, I replaced the stencil and daubed Winter Red, Pumpkin and Citron over the pasted area.

I put the large design in the small space and the small design in the large places.
Then daubed the same colors on a square of glossy white paper. This shows off the colors really nice. The felt flowers matched so well I decided to use them as my accent. Ta-da....done.

Hope you try this sketch for some of your card designs. Watch for these new inks at your local stamp stores. Don't forget to visit the other members of the Dream Team.
Until next week, happy stenciling!

Dreamweaver Free Week

Hello All!
I can't wait for this weekend when I get to play and create. I'll finally have some new creations for you to see on my blog.
But for's a free week this week.
The following is an old card, but one of my favorites.

To do this I used the white matte paste over the pumpkin border stencil. Let dry, place the cleaned stencil back over the image and stenciled color onto it with pigment ink.

Funny thing, as I was taking pictures I noticed I had missed stenciling color over one of the leaves. Never noticed it before (I made this at least a year ago!).

Look close and you'll see it. Looks like I better fix it before I send it out.

Don't miss all the other blogging creations! I'll have something new and fresh for you next week.

Till then................
Stay safe and warm. Thank you all for your continued support of mine and my fellow Dream Team blogs and especially for your support of Lynell and Dreamweaver Stencils!! Make sure you keep stenciling!!
