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!


  1. This is a great use of those backgrounds Terrece! And the felt flowers are neat. Are they from Creative Impressions in Colorado?

  2. This. Is. Gorgeous! Love the ink splotches over the Cathedral window. Especially with the hints of white still showing through.

  3. I know what you mean about the head to paper process. Love the fall colors with the pop of the glossy white paste and the softness of the felt flowers. Perfect combination!

  4. Great combination of stencils and colors Terrece! Very lovely.

  5. Very nice, and fun!
