Welcome to another Dream Scheme Thursday. Summer is officially here and we have the hot weather to prove it. So for this week's Designer's Choice I chose a card in bright, sunny colors, appropriate for the start of summer.
I began by attaching the Mosaic stencil (LJ901) to lightweight card stock and applying color using Splendor "Circus" ink by Tsukineko. After removing the stencil and cleaning it, I repositioned it over the colored area and applied translucent embossing paste. I carefully removed the stencil, washed it, and allowed the card to dry. I wasn't kidding about the warm weather – the paste dried in about 15 minutes! Next I applied double sided mounting paper to card stock and, after soaping the back of the Summer stencil (LM294), attached it to the front of the sticky paper. Using Glitter Ritz Microfine Glitter in Copper, I sprinkled it over the letters and rubbed it in. After carefully removing the stencil, I applied Glitter Ritz Cool Highlight Transparent Microfine glitter to the remaining area and rubbed that in as well. I used a scalloped oval punch for the shape and the broad top of an orange Prismacolor pen to outline the scallops. The ribbon is by Creative Impressions.
Thankfully, it's cooled down a bit, so I just might make another card in cool blues and greens with a hint of gray to capture the morning fog.
I hope your summer is off to a good start. Get more ideas and inspiration by checking out the other Design Team blogs and the Dreamweaver Stencil's blog, DREAM it UP! Leave a note letting us know you've stopped by. We love to hear from you.
