Dream Teamer Lee Kellogg provided the colors for this week's challenge: lime green and gray. These are colors I'm not usually drawn to, but it's good for me to get out of my comfort zone and, as a result, I have lots of ideas to work on. Here's my card:
Houndstooth stencil (LJ913), sanding the raised edges and applying Ranger's Distress Inks in Shabby Shutters and Pumice Stone with the applicator tool. When applying the inks, remember to begin with a circular motion off the edge of the paper and work toward the middle.
The Hot Air Balloon (LL3003) was dry-embossed on black metal and, again, the raised edges were sanded to expose the gray base. I used a Copic marker (New Leaf) to add color to the stencil and smoothed it out with the applicator tool.
The sentiment is from a set that most likely came from Michael's dollar bin; the brads are by Basic Gray.
There you have it. Be sure to check out the other Dream Team members' blogs, listed on the right, to see what they've been working on. And don't forget to let us see your work by linking to the Dreamweaver Stencils bog, DREAM it UP!
