Creating Fall with Dreamweaver

While I am loving the heat of the Summer here in NY, Fall is my favorite season. This week, the Stampendous team is creating beautiful things with a Fall theme. Since it's Dreamweaver Thursday, my project today features a few of our awesome stencils.

I started off with the Large Maple Leaf stencil, and I inked it with an olive ink from Tsukineko and a stencil brush. Then, I used the Houndstooth Stencil and a gray ink. To achieve this look, you need to leave the leaf stencil in place, and then tape the Houndstooth stencil on top. This will keep you from stenciling anywhere besides the leaf area. Of course, you can change this technique up to fit whichever stencils you want to use. Then, I cut the leaf out.

The color is a wee bit off in this photo. The top photo shows the color correctly. My background was cut from the same piece of pale green cardstock that I used for my leaf. I took the stencil that comes with the Wired (NKCRS02) stamp set, and I sprayed it with Pale Ale Memory Mist. After that dried, I stamped the wire stamp from that same set on top of the stenciled circles.

Then I used the super cool Gears stencil in just a couple of places on the card. I inked it and then embossed the Seasonings powder on top. I love how thick it is and all of the pretty, metallic colors it has in it. I wrapped some simple twine from May Arts, and layered everything up with foam squares to give it dimension. Please be sure to visit the rest of the team that is posting today. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
