Dream Scheme Sketch
This week, I had some trouble uploading the sketch at a reasonable size. It is probably just as well, though, as I really didn't follow it exactly. I kept the circle in the center, but removed the small circular sentiment from the lower right hand corner.
When Lynell sent this stencil, I have to admit that I was thrilled. I have collected cameos for many years, and am excited to imagine the many ways that I can use this gorgeous stencil. For this first use, my real cameo collection influenced the colors. My favorite cameos are either brown or pink, so those are the first colors that I thought of for this. It was such an easy card!
First, I pasted the cameo stencil with white glossy paste on textured brown cardstock.
Then, I soaped the back of the houndstooth stencil and affixed it to the Double Sided Adhesive Paper. I used brown flock first. The secret is to use alot of Fun Flock at once and push it down hard onto the adhesive. I brushed the excess off with a large stencil brush. I carefully peeled the adhesive paper off of the stencil. Then, I used alot of the pink Fun Flock and pressed that in hard as well. I brushed off all the excess, peeled off the backing and mounted it onto the dark brown cardstock. After that, it was really simple. Just assembly.
So, if you want to see the sketch, or get inspired by more stencil art today, just take a little peek at the other Dream Teamers this week. Don't forget to leave comments! We all like comments. Then, you should make a little something (it doesn't have to be a card) and link it to the Dreamweaver Stencil blog.
