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 am absolutely loving your takes on Dreamweaver stencils. You are totally inspiring me to step out of my box.

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.
Lyn B said…
Alison, your card is very alluring and draws one into it!
Jessica Griffin said…
Hahaha! She reminds me of the salt girl too! Beautiful card!!

Beautiful card!! the rain stencil is perfect for the stamp image too!
Laura Drahozal said…
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.

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
