Welcome back for another Dream Scheme Thursday. Today is Designer's Choice and as I was planning this post, it was overcast and gray with a little drizzle so, of course, my thoughts turned to umbrellas and the new release from Dreamweaver Stencils.
I began by dry embossing the umbrella stencil (LJ908) and then added color using soft pastels from the Splendor ink Blossom collection by Tsukineko. When the ink was dry, I positioned the rain stencil (LJ908) over the image and embossed it using translucent paste, which gives just a hint of a drizzle. Apologies for the poor photography. Neither the camera nor Photoshop could reproduce the colors as they are on the card. The raindrops don't show up well in the photo and look more like bad inking. The sentiment, from the rain word stencil is dry embossed on pink vellum, cut into a tag shape and adhered under the ribbon. That's all there is to it. This is another one of those versatile stencils that can be used for a variety of occasions – wedding or baby shower, get well, or just to brighten up an overcast day.
The new stencils are now available and will start showing up in the Dream Team blogs, so be sure to check them out. And don't forget to stop by Dreamweaver's DREAM it UP bog to see what's new.
