Fall Fun with Dreamweaver

The Stampendous theme for this week is Fall Fun.  I am using one of my favorite stencils today.


Large Oak Leaf Stencil DWLG754
Crusade Stencil DWLX7025
Mixed Media White Paper
Faber Castell Pitt Pen in Sanguine
Micron Pens in Red, Orange, Green and Black
Stamping Details Rubber Embossing Mat
Manual Die Cut Machine
May Arts Ribbon
Card Stock

1)  Place the oak leaf stencil on the Mixed Media Paper and lightly trace with a pencil.
2)  Trace all the pencil lines with the sanguine pen.
3)  Add designs with the sanguine pen, including the veining on the leaves.
4)  Create dots with the sanguine pen on the center areas of the leaves.
5)  Create dots for color on the leaves with the red, orange and green pens.  This works best if you cluster like colors in the same area.
6)  Use the black pen to add shading or accents to the image.

7)  Use the crusade stencil and brown cardstock in your manual die cut machine.  The stencil should go face down over the bottom plate and be followed with the card stock face down, the rubber embossing mat and the top mat.
8)  Assemble the card.

    LOVE the AMAZING DETAIL in your leaves!!!

  2. BEAUTIFUL designs with such a great pen palette. Thank you for sharing today!

  3. This is cool! It looks so dimensional the way you did the veins and shadows. Not many people can use pointillism to such great effect.
