Okay, so maybe there is a little more than just a pop of color here, but I think this is a fun card. I am planning on using it for my guitar-playing nephew's birthday.
LL 3028 Electric Guitar Stencil. I simply ran it through my Cuttlebug with red coated aluminum from Mercart Metals. The sandwich for the Cuttlebug is Plate A, stencil face down, metal red side down, Details Embossing Mat, and then the two B Plates. After using the Cuttlebug, I placed the metal face up on top of LJ 915 Opto Checkerboard. I used an artists blending stump to rub over the background metal, revealing the pattern. Finally, I carefully sanded the entire thing. I made sure that the raised parts of the guitar were particularly clean. After that, it was simply a matter of layering.
Easy, huh? You could do one, too. Simply create either a graduation or black, white and pop (or more than a pop) of color. Then, email it to Lynell or link it to the Dream It Up blog. That's it. You could win some fabulous stencils.
This week's card was so simple, that I have decided to offer a bonus project. It answers the "Does it have to be a card?" question with a resounding NO. I have created a scrapbook page for the Twisted Sketches site, where the "twist" is white. I made this one black and white and two pops of color.
LM 2008 Bunny. You can see it on the pink crepe paper hat band. It was created with the Double Glitter technique. I soaped the back of the stencil, brushed off the extra soap and placed it soap side down on the adhesive paper. Then, I carefully added Microfine Opaque #507 Black Wing to the eyes and nose. I pushed it down and brushed off the excess. Then, I used pink Fun Flock in the ears, and tan and white Fun Flock in the body. I used a lot and pressed it down hard with my thumb. I thoroughly brushed the excess off. I then removed the adhesive paper from the stencil and covered it in Art Glitter Ultrafine Transparent #85 Crystal. I cut around the outside of the bunny, peeled off the backing, and attached it directly to the crepe paper.
Once again, I would like to remind you that this can be an easy project. Check out the rest of the Dreamweaver Team blogs today, get inspired, and come play with us for your chance to win!
