August as an Adjective: Jellyfish

As we are heading towards back-to-school again, it is only appropriate that we break out our dictionary for this month's Dreamweaver challenge..."AUGUST as an ADJECTIVE"! 
Merriam-Webster defines august as, "marked by majestic dignity or grandeur", with synonyms such as, "dignified, distinguished, imposing, portly, solemn, staid, and stately". Now, I don't know just how dignified and stately the Dream Team can become for an entire month, but we are all going to give it a try! How about trying along with us, and linking YOUR creations to the Inlinkz tool below for a chance to win the wildest stencil design your little heart is screaming for. 

Here's my creation for this week:

I used the beautiful, brand-spankin' new Jellyfish stencil. I used Pearlescent Embossing Paste to get this image on to my cardstock. While it was still wet, I dropped several colors of Metallic FX powders on to the jellyfish by dipping a brush into the powders, and tapping it over the image.

Then I heated the jellyfish with an embossing gun. It started to puff up and bubble, and I was so excited to see that. This is the first time I tried this "Molten Magic" technique, and it was fun! I would imaging that typically, the bubbling isn't something you would strive for...or you may even want to continue to hear it until the bubbling stops, but I used it to my advantage to make this jellyfsh look more "alive."

I jazzed the card up a bit further with a couple of paper punches, some pearls, and beautiful ribbon from May Arts. I hope you have enjoyed my creation. Please be sure to visit the rest of the B Team from Dreamweaver Stencils.

Lovely color choices and the overall card is gorgeous Alison! That molten bubble works perfectly. I like the added scallop border and silky crush ribbon for a dreamy effect.

Interesting that both you and Lynell posted the new Jellyfish with the same technique! Love how the body puffed so much, and the colors that you used!

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!
