Dreamweaver Blog Hop

Get ready to be inked, pasted, encrusted, stenciled and stamped! 




It's finally time for the  Dreamweaver Stencils' Dream Team and the Stampendous Design Teams combined Blog Hop!!


If you want to start at the beginning of the hop go to Dream it Up!

We will be providing some "Dream-pendous" inspiration for you, with multiple opportunities to win some fabulous prizes from both companies. This is your opportunity to see how to mix and mingle your creativity...if you are a stenciler, you will be fascinated at combining stamps with your first love. If you are a stamper, you will be wowed at how stencils can add to your impressions.

Here is the card I made:


To make this card I started by distressing the edges of a black panel of card stock and adhered it to a top folding gold card base.  I Stamped Dream Text background by Stampendous on a white panel of Card Stock in black ink. Then I tore the edges of the panel and sponged Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress ink across the panel and on the edges.  
I created the cool looking dress using the Apron Stencil by Dreamweavers and Glossy Black Embossing Paste.  After the paste dried I stamped on it with VersaMark ink with the Flourish stamp from the Cling Jumbo Tulip Set by Stampendous and embossed with Pirate Gold embossing Powder by Stampendous.
I stamped the flourish a couple of times on the main panel and embossed them with the gold embossing powder too!  I also randomly rubbed VersaMark ink in different spots along the edges and embossed those spots too.
I glued some Bronzed Mica Fragments by stampendous in a few spots and then finally used a found piece of lace to create a bow which I attached to the card with a pearl brad by Eyelet Outlet.

Here's a closer look:
