Burgundy and Gold Dreamweaver Challenge
I really love this card. I love the rich color I was able to get in the background. I started out with the nativity stencil (LL3019) which I pasted in Metallic Gold on burgundy paper. While that was drying I got out the new Color Solutions alcohol inks that Dreamweaver has just released. Using a felt tool and felt from Ranger Industries I put a squeeze of Creme Brulee and Gold on the felt then I put just a drop of Darkest Brown and some of the thinner. I applied this to glossy card stock by twisting and turning the tool as I was applying the color, when I finished putting the color on I then went back with a little more thinner which gives it a marble look. Alcohol ink dries fairly quickly so I was able to use the Prince of Peace stencil (LX7004) right away and that was also pasted with Metallic Gold paste. I then layer everything onto gold card stock. As you can tell by my recent post I tend to be a clean and simple card maker. Congratulations to the new Dream Team members and I hope you have as much fun as the rest of us are. Now everybody check out the rest of the Dream Team creations and dont't forget to come back next week. I wish everyone a Merry Christmas.
