It's Dream Scheme Thursday

It's Thursday and this week is a "free" week so anything goes.

It seems the weather can't make up it's mind whether it is spring or still winter. This card seemed appropriate since we had rain again yesterday.

First I made the umbrella and handle out of cardstock. Attach to front of card.
Then I made a mask under the umbrella where I didn't want the rain.
Next place the raindrop stencil over the top and apply blue gloss paste.

LJ 905 Rain
Once dry I added the "Get Well Soon" with this stencil, blue paste and blue glitter.

LL382 Get Well Soon
Once that dried, I drew in the grass.
For a get well card, I thought it looked a bit cheery!

Hope this sparks a creative idea. Make sure to visit the other members of the dream team. They always have wonderful ideas and techniques to share.

Until next week.............

Dream Scheme Thursday (and I'm late)

I was out of town for a week and you would think it had been a month for as behind as I've become!!!

This week the Dream Scheme is a color challenge from team member Kristi. I love the colors she picked so it made coming up with an idea easy.

The color challenge is Yellow and Teal.

This is my interpretation:

I wanted each layer to have both colors on it. So I started with the bright yellow cardstock and the LX7001 Damask background stencil. I added Splendor bright blue ink (which looks teal on the yellow). Then on a light teal color cardstock I used the same stencil and added bright yellow Splendor ink. Then I flipped it so the design was going the opposite direction of the first yellow cardstock mat.

The owls were pasted with Yellow Matte Paste on dark teal cardstock. Once dry I repositioned the stencil over the image and added a bit of bright blue ink on the owls and branch. Finally I added a bit of bling on the eyes with teal jewels.

Next time I think I'll add teal glitter on the owls where I had stenciled the color for some more sparkle!

Check out the other members of the Dream Team so get more ideas of how to use Yellow and Teal. Everyone did very different types of cards - don't miss any of them!

See you here again next week for more inspiration with Dreamweaver Stencils!
