Give Thanks Dreamweaver Card

Okay, everyone. I am down to the last Dreamweaver card that I can show before the big CHA reveal of the newest stencils. I know that this one is more "fall-ish", but we can use a break from thinking about all that warm weather. The words were from a large "Give Thanks/Cornucopia" stencil. They are stencilled in gold on some Bo Bunny paper. The Wheat Stencil was used on watercolor paper with a Soft Wheat Dye ink and then Versamark and Clear Embossing Powder initially to create a resist to watercolor paint a blue background over. In an interesting turn of events, the watercolor paper wasn't quite strong enough for everything I was doing to it, and the practice painting went horribly awry. The soft embossed wheat looked fine as it was anyway, so I used that. I also used the stencil on linen (which, ironically IS plenty stong enough) with yellow embossing paste that I then enhanced with various colors of Distress Inks. Then, is was just a matter of assembly and raffia. This one was nice and easy, so I am thinking of including it in my fall Dreamweaver class.


  1. I Love wheat and this card! Seems like a LONG time ago that we talked about going to CHA..... are you going? Lucky you if you are.

  2. Beautiful card! I love fall and it's never too early to start creating fall cards.
