This week's challenge is red, ivory and kraft. When I looked through my work, I found one that was very close--red, ivory and brown. I decided to remake it, with only a slight change in products and colors. Here it is--red, ivory and kraft two ways. Both cards use stencil LJ906. The top card, which is the newer one, also uses the new LS1008. It is a Chinese character for the word Hope.
The two different cards both used Red Glossy Paste. It was applied the same way, but the technique varied after the application. The top card had Art Glitter in Ultrafine Red Velvet, Christmas Red and Chunky Holographic Red Rocket thrown on the wet paste and brushed off when the paste was dry. On the bottom card, I used the Metallic FX in Cocoa, Amber Glow and Kimono Red. It was also brushed off when dry, but then I used a Swiffer to remove all the excess.You might be able to see on this bottom card, but on both I scraped off the covering to expose the beautiful Red Glossy Paste underneath. See how the edges on this one appear drawn on? In real life, it is bright red on those edges. I did the same on parts of the top one, but being that that has red glitter on it, it shows up a little less bright.
These cards were actually very simple. Not much to do beyond the pasting and assembly. I hope you like them. Check out the rest of the team's reaction to this colorway. Leave a comment. If you want to try it, link yours to the Dreamweaver Stencils blog. Come play with us!
