Week 3 with Dreamweaver Stencils

Greetings! Today I am sharing my third post as a Guest Designer with Dreamweaver Stencils. I've got to say, I am going to be very sad when my little stint with them is over. I am having so much fun! But at least I will be able to play along with their challenges anytime. So, as a refresher...the challenge for the month is "Rain/Drizzles/Showers/Mists." So I broke out the versatile Rain Stencil again.

I started by applying White Embossing Paste over the entire Rain stencil. While it was still wet, I applied some Sapphire Metallic F/X Powder...but I did it gingerly. I wanted some blue, but not too much...and I didn't want even coverage. I also inked the edges in a dark blue.

I was fortunate to have won a challenge over at The Altered Alice some time ago, and I won a gift certificate to Nature's Blessings. The sweet little girl is one of the stamps I chose...specifically to go along with the Dreamweaver challenge. She kind of reminds me of the Morton Salt girl. I also used Blueberry Memory Mist on the actual card. Would you like to see more creations featuring this fun challenge? Then please check out all of the links below. The Dreamweaver Team is so talented! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

I think my favorite part of this card is the dark ink edging. Seems so obvious, but it really adds a slightly ominous quality as if she's warding off the storm.
I love the way you have done to torn paper mounting! Always an inspiration Alison...always a twist! Thanks for your postings this month.

Just so cool and interesting. I imagine her inside a cave, contemplating whether to go out into that rain or not. I love the subtle coloring on the rain. I am so glad that you designed with Dreamweaver this month.

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
