Zeroing in on a new Technique: Dreamweaver Thursday

It's Dreamweaver Thursday and all this week, the Stampendous team has been sharing lots of amazing projects featuring these fantabulous stencils. Today I am sharing a project with a new (to me) technique, called the Zero Drawing Technique. This was fun and really easy!

HERE's a great video on exactly how to do this technique. Basically, I used a graphite pencil and 2 erasers from Tombow, plus a sponge dauber, and 2 great Dreamweaver stencils. I used the Leafless Tree Stencil and Pumpkins Stencil. I placed the pumpkins first, and then worked different parts of the tree around it. I also used the Zero Eraser to add some extra vies and leaves to the stems of 2 of the pumpkins. The Zero Eraser is so teeny that it's perfect for detail work like that.  The other eraser I used was the MONO NP Eraser.

After I finished my image, I distressed the edges and mounted it simply on black cardstock and then on to a white card. I kept it all on the left side so I could add a thin piece of black cord from May Arts. I'll definitely be using this project for the 31 Days of Halloween. It was so easy, and I think it could look super creepy if done right. Below are the rest of the ladies posting today. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

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!
