Something Old, New, Borrowed and Blue with Dreamweaver

At Dreamweaver Stencils, we love to make our monthly challenges something for everyone, and not so strict that no one wants to play along. This month our challenge is, "Old, New, Borrowed, Blue", with the obvious thought being a wedding theme...but not necessarily. Add an old embellishment or picture. Use a new stencil design or technique. Borrow, or CASE (copy and say everything) another designers project, and obviously, blue...is blue. Where will YOUR creative process take you for this month? We'd love to see! And remember, linking your creations with the Inklinkz tool at the end of the team posts, provides you with the opportunity to win the stencil of your choice! Here's what I've created for this week...

I worked with the beautiful Lotus stencil. I worked with a few colors of pigment ink from Color Box, applies with a stencil brush to the entire flower. I then dusted on some glittery embossing powder and heat set it.

You can see the glitter a bit here. I also used a "Hello" from the Birthday Words stencil, using the same techniques as the flower. I also taped off the sentiments that are above and below the "Hello" so that I didn't accidentally ink them up.

I inked the edges of my cardstock, and added a simple border punch. It's kind of a Clean and Simple card, but the glitter really adds something to it. So, my Something Old is the inks (they are like 12 years old!), my Something New is the Lotus stencil, I didn't have a Borrowed, and the Blue...well, I think you can figure that out. ;) Here's the "B" team list...please leave everyone some love! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

This is wonderful...love that you made it a "hello" card too! Those are really fun to send to anyone! Thank you for the inspiration with the glittered embossing powder ...I like glitter and I like embossing powder, but I don't think I have anything that includes both. Could I make my own in a pinch?
