Thursday Dream Scheme's - Free Challenge
This week is a free challenge for our dream team. I chose to use one of the new background stencils. The Houndstooth background stencil (LJ 913) I chose to use as both part of the background and also as the background on the fan. For the background I pasted with white glossy paste and sprinkled in Metallic F/X in Kiwi and Purple Satin. Then for the fan I rouged in the background houndstooth design in Eggplant (Adirondack Ink by Ranger)I also used the same color on the edge and spine for the fan. I used the Bamboo Stencil (LL 533) for the focal point on the design I rouged in Old Olive (Stampin UP) then I used Clear Embossing Ink and sprinkled the design with UTEE then heated the design with my heat gun. On a piece of Aubergine cardstock I pasted the chinese symbol for Sympathy (LS 53) in white glossy paste and used Metallic F/X Kiwi and Purple Satin. I layered the Aubergine rectangle on to olive green cardstock and cut the background with the chevron print to fit the rest of the card. I used green suede ribbon over the seam. I then cut out the fan and popped it off the card with mounting tape.Now that you have been to my blog, please check the blogs of the rest of the design team, I'm sure that you will great inspiration there as well and if you want to play along post to Mr Linky on the Dream It Up blog.
