August as an Adjective: Jellyfish

As we are heading towards back-to-school again, it is only appropriate that we break out our dictionary for this month's Dreamweaver challenge..."AUGUST as an ADJECTIVE"! 
Merriam-Webster defines august as, "marked by majestic dignity or grandeur", with synonyms such as, "dignified, distinguished, imposing, portly, solemn, staid, and stately". Now, I don't know just how dignified and stately the Dream Team can become for an entire month, but we are all going to give it a try! How about trying along with us, and linking YOUR creations to the Inlinkz tool below for a chance to win the wildest stencil design your little heart is screaming for. 

Here's my creation for this week:

I used the beautiful, brand-spankin' new Jellyfish stencil. I used Pearlescent Embossing Paste to get this image on to my cardstock. While it was still wet, I dropped several colors of Metallic FX powders on to the jellyfish by dipping a brush into the powders, and tapping it over the image.

Then I heated the jellyfish with an embossing gun. It started to puff up and bubble, and I was so excited to see that. This is the first time I tried this "Molten Magic" technique, and it was fun! I would imaging that typically, the bubbling isn't something you would strive for...or you may even want to continue to hear it until the bubbling stops, but I used it to my advantage to make this jellyfsh look more "alive."

I jazzed the card up a bit further with a couple of paper punches, some pearls, and beautiful ribbon from May Arts. I hope you have enjoyed my creation. Please be sure to visit the rest of the B Team from Dreamweaver Stencils.

Lovely color choices and the overall card is gorgeous Alison! That molten bubble works perfectly. I like the added scallop border and silky crush ribbon for a dreamy effect.
