Distressed Dreams

It's Dreamweaver Thursday and  I created this distressed Thank You card for this weeks Dreamweaver Stencil project.

To create this card I started by mixing some instant coffee with water in a spray bottle, lightly sprayed the  mixture on white cardstock., and allowed it to dry.

After it dried I taped the Pop Rectangles Stencil to the cardstock.

Then I stenciled the pattern with Regular Embossing Paste.
I removed the stencil.

While the paste was wet I heat embossed it with aged spice embossing enamel.

Then I added a Spoonfull of Rust to the panel and heated it from underneath to melt it.

Finally I assembled the card.

The sentiment is from the Happy Messages Perfectly Clear Stamp Set.

Hop on over to the Stampendous Blog to see who else made Dreamweaver projects today!
