Hello...

Have you seen or heard the news? I am part of the Stampendous! Design Team! I am beyond excited about this. Especially since Stampendous! now owns Dreamweaver Stencils. This is a match made in heaven, and I am so happy to be along for the ride. Stampendous! is pretty excited about their new acquisition, and they wanted to do a week of fun stenciling projects to show off some of the many things that they can do. 

So, how many stencils did I use for this card? 1? 2? Actually, I used 5! The beautiful Feather stencil is one, the Scales in my background, and then on the feather, I used the Spiral Dots, the I Beams, and the water from the Frigate stencil (the green portions) too! 


I started off by inking each of the colors on to the feather. Remember that when you do this, you need to mask off each section so that you don't put the wrong color in the wrong spot. After that, and leaving the feather stencil in place, I laid the various design stencils down where I wanted them (one at a time, of course), and inked them all with brown. My brown ink was a pigment ink, so it stays wet for a while, which makes it perfect for embossing. So I used clear embossing powder on top, to give it a nice sheen and some dimension. You can see it really well in the photo above. 


Then, I fussy cut the feather out, and laid it aside while I randomly stenciled my Scales right on to my card base in blue. I inked the edges of the card base, and laid my feather down where I was planning on adhering it. I wrote out the "hello," and then attached the feather (mostly with pop dots for dimension), at the end of the word so it would look as though the feather wrote the hello out. I hope you like my card. Thank you so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
