Day 10 of 31: A 2-fer with Rick St. Dennis and Dreamweaver Stencils

Greetings, my ghoulish friends! I have 2 projects for you to check out, for two fantastic DT's. The first is Rick St. Dennis, and the other is Dreamweaver Stencils.

This is BeWitching. Ain't she though? I had a great time coloring her. I love her cape, and her ruffles. And hey! I got lucky and my purples don't look un-purple today! ;)

Again, I broke out the Spectrum Noirs to color her up. My sentiment is from Tiddly Inks, and the punch I used is from EK Success. I think this witch is rad.

I am sharing this card also on the Airless Chambers Blog today.

Now, on to my Dreamweaver Stencils project. You may recall from last week that the challenge for the month is "Mysterious and Magical." I hope you like my latest offering for this challenge.

I started off with the awesome Stone Wall stencil. I embossed it, rather roughly, with white embossing paste. I then buffed on a few shades of Distress Ink. I used Peeled Paint to make it look a bit mossy. Then, I embossed the Crows with Black Embossing Paste. The pastes I used are both from Dreamweaver. After they dried, I cut them out.

Check out the fabulous texture you can create with the paste! I know my foam dots are visible...I wanted you to see the dimension. And I a ran out of black foam dots! For my background, I tore a few pieces of various browns. I used a Martha Stewart Tombstone punch and coordinating stamp, and my bat fence is also from Martha Stewart. The "Nevermore" is from one of my favorite Smeared Ink sets, Quoth the Raven.

So what do you think? I certainly had a great time making both of these pieces. Below is the link list for the "B" Team for Dreamweavers Stencils. Swing by and sat hello! Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creep-tastic day!

Both Awesome projects today!!! Love the coloring on the BeWitching lady in her fab green coat and purple (yes I can see the purple!) ruffles. Great glitter accents.
Amazing work on that stone wall. I have not heard of embossing paste. Yea Day 10!

A congress of crows! I wonder what they are discussing.
The mossy look turned out wonderfully. I doubt it could be done better.

And your purples are purplishious!

Alison, both of your offerings are amazing. I definitely love how you colored that rad witch. The crows look like they are planning something sinister. One question...what is embossing paste? I have never heard of it.
Sharon Sahl said…
Two gorgeous projects! Since I'll see the witch again, I'll just comment on the amazing crow creation! That wall is fabulous and putting the fence in front of it inspired! And the strips of paper to create a background - you rock!!
