Today's sketch can be seen on the other member's blogs, my computer is having issues this morning pulling the sketch over. Anyway this is my take on the sketch I started by using a navy blue card. My background was done by using the the new large striped stencil (LX7002) this is a great stencil to have because you can use it for a stripe background or a plaid background. For today's card I did a plaid background using Navy Blue and Meadow Green Paintsticks. I knew it would take me awhile to do the background so before I started I decided to paste the Celtic Knot (LL345) with metallic copper paste. It takes a while to dry so by the time I finished doing the background the paste was dry. I mounted the pasted Celtic Knot to a olive green layer. to the background layer I added green and blue ribbons and some little metallic dots. This card was simple and fun. With the exception of the embellishments everything here is available through http://dreamweaverstencils.com/, check out the website for stores where their products can be purchased. I encourage you to check out the other design team blogs to see their ideas using this sketch, each of us has our own different style and you can get some really great ideas, and don't forget to check out the Dream It Up blog to see what's going on there. See y'all next week with a new and exciting challenge.

Well today is another free challenge. As some of you know in December I broke my foot and this is the third cast I have been in. I decided for my dreamweaver challenge this week I would try my stencil on my cast. I used stencil LL478 Hibiscus and copic marker airbrushing. It was fun working with this medium but unfortunately it is hard to get a picture that did it justice. I have a doctor's appt. today I wonder what he'll think off my artwork. Anyway this just goes to show you that Dreamweaver stencils can be used anywhere so think out of the box and color out of the lines whenever you can. Have a creative week and don't forget to check out the other design team blogs to see the incredible things they have come up with this week.

For today's dream team the challenge is a free them. I have had this paper from Reminiese for a very long time and found just the right use for this card. For this card it was really very simple, I used this new rooster stencil (LG732) and Glossy Black paste both from Dreamweaver Stencils.
Ilove the french country look using red white and black. I used several different papers all from the same line of paper, added a black and white polka dot bow and metal corners from Tim Holtz. It has become one of my favorite cards and was really very simple.
Make sure you check out the rest of the Dream Team's blogs many of them were able to go to CHA this year and they came home with some fabulous idea's. See you next Thursday with anotherDream Team challenge.
