MC Sept/12 - Fall Bouquet - Friends Are Those
So this time I checked and I'm using a Dreamweaver stencil...#LM196 (the vase)
The card is side folded cream toned 4"w x 8.5"h
I placed the stencil in the spot I wanted it to mark the top edge and then mask it, so I could stamp my berry branches (Stampington "Holiday Trims" 4 stamps on 1 block), which I did with Distress markers (red for the berries and brown with touches of green for the branches) then misted with water and stamped. Repeated the process for the 2nd branch.
Placed the stencil back, masking my edges and stamped the hexagon pattern (Local King Rubber "Bee Wax") with a blue Distress marker, misting with water and stamping. Dried it, then applied a medium thick layer of Pearlescent Dreamweaver paste.
Die cut my foliage (Impression Obsession "DIE030-S") from abstract decorated paper. Adhered them to card. Penciled a shadow line using a 2B pencil and then blending with a paper stump.
Stamped the quote (Quietfire Design) with Versafine Majestic Blue and touching it with black. Colored some half pearls with a red alcohol pen (Spectrum Noir) and placed them randomly on my stamped branch. Added gold Peel Off lines.
Im extremely happy with this card. ..
