Rainy Day Farewell
It's the Dream Teams's last theme for the month of April with our interpretation of "Showers to Showers." It is also our last post together under the direction of Dreamweaver's founder, Lynell Harlow. We are shedding bittersweet tears as we close one door and open a new one with Stampendous. Lynell has been an enormous inspiration to me over the past 3 years and it has been my privilege to learn the art of stenciling through her. She's a delightful person and I sure hope we continue to see her and Wayne in the industry. Their Zendays Wednesdays blog posts are delightful. Good luck Lynell and we are so happy Dreamweaver has found a new home with Stampendous!
I used several fantastic Dreamweaver Stencils for this card, as well as a couple of Stampendous! stamps to tie in our wonderful new alignment. After I colored the sweet Potted Mouse with alcohol markers, I used the fantastic Picasso Stencil to create the clouds in the background with ink. After that, I applied the Rain stencil with Transparent Embossing Paste. Here's a close up.
I love how the drops look real! Next, I used the Quatrefoil stencil for my pink cardstock. I used 3 shades of brown to ink it, going from dark to light. Then I inked up the Damask stencil in an olive green for my cardstock base.
My sentiment is also from Stampendous! and it comes from the Life Words set. I photographed it with a glare so that you could see how it looks with the irRESISTables spray that I used on the sentiment. Again, I am truly going to miss working closely with Lynell. She is just incredible, so very knowledgeable, and an awesome person. Thank you for absolutely everything, Lynell! Here are the folks posting today:
