MC Sept/12 - Fall Bouquet - Friends Are Those

I think I'm making up for lost time again... 3rd card in one day. Sheesh, but they had to come out of me, they were just percolating in my brain... BIG GRIN

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. ..

I love your challenge to yourself to use up the scraps! What a fabulous way to use the scraps! I love the wonderful pattern and shine on the vase, the little pops of color on your berry branches, and the bit of dimension from the leaves. Thanks so much for playing along with the Dreamweaver team!
