The Fresh Start Theme Continues

There's more!  There's more!  Continuing with last week's Fresh Start theme and the new stencils released this month is this lovely LJ924 Bride, and it's very easy to do using the Molten Magic technique.

Begin by paste embossing the stencil with Pearlescent paste using the paste spreader (LM2010).  Remove the stencil and sprinkle Metallic F/X over the dress.  I find this easiest to do by dipping a Qtip or paint brush into the Metallic F/X and then tapping it over the pasted portion of the image where you want to add color.   Heat the colored portion with a heat tool until the paste begins to bubble.  The results will be different each time and that's the fun of it!  This one reminds me of the beading found on many wedding dresses.  I also added a bit of color to the veil and heated that, too, with the heat gun.  Set the stencil aside for the rest of the paste to dry. 

Reposition the clean stencil over the image and color to bouquet with ink using a small stencil brush and the Picasso tool.  I also added a touch of pink for the blush on the bride's face.   Here's another fun touch:  if you know the bride has a favorite color, or the colors chosen for the wedding, you can customize the card for her special day.

Now, there's still time to enter this month's Fresh Start challenge, so don't delay – you just might be a winner!   Check the Dreamweaver blog, DREAM it UP! for all the details and then stop by the rest of the Design Team blogs for more fun and crafty inspiration.

See you next week,


  1. This card is just breathtaking. I love the texture of the molten magic technique on her skirt.

  2. Outstanding! Love the skirt of the dress, the bubbles make me want to touch it.

  3. It really does look like pearl beading over the skirt of this. It's been interesting to see what everyone has done with this design.

  4. I would not have done this technique with this stencil but it really works on the dress! Very pretty!

  5. LOVE the molten on the did such a great job of controlling the heat just in that area. It looks like lace or beading...very tricky to get that just right. You must be experienced.
