Dream Scheme Thursday


In keeping with the feeling of the season I have a thank you card that is made using one of my favorite techniques.

First paste image with gold paste. Remove stencil and while paste is still wet, gentle set jewels in paste.

Let paste dry then reposition stencil over image again. Sponge glue from glue pad over pot only. Remove stencil, heat (just a bit). Lay variegated leafing over pot and set a piece of wax paper over the top. Burnish. Brush away excess leafing.

Position Thank You stencil on card and paste with gold paste. Remove stencil, let dry and voila!

I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving and hope you will share something you are thankful for this wonderful day. Make sure to visit the other team members blogs for more inspiration!

See you next week.
