Sand Castle Card for Imagine Crafts and Dreamweaver Stencils

Hello and welcome to another fun day of the Imagine Crafts and Dreamweaver Stencils collaboration! All week long, the folks on each of the Design Teams have been showcasing fun projects using products from both awesome companies. Here's my creation for today.

I used the Sand Castle for my card. I used several colors of Versa Fine and a Memento ink to color the castle and the background. I used finger daubers for everything. Would you like to see the colors I used?

These colors are fantastic. They are so rich and blend beautifully together. Before I inked my sky, I embossed the sand castle.

I used Imagine Crafts' iRESISTibles spray to create the sand and on my main card. I just love the texture that spray creates!

The fab ribbon I used (look like rippling water, right?) is from May Arts. I adore this ribbon! I didn't glue it down completely so that it had some movement. Below is the full link list for today. I'll have another collaborative project tomorrow. Be sure to leave some love along the way for a chance to win some awesome prizes! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask? Well, my mom bought my son a light saber(Darth Vader's) for Christmas, and he wanted to display it, but we weren't really sure where in his room, and how. I wanted something cooler than hooks, and we thought it would be neat to have the light saber vertical, instead of horizontal. Plus, there was a fab spot for it if it hung in that direction. So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.

The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…
