Dreamweaver Challenge : CAS
This week's card was really fun for me. In october my boss and his wife went to France, he asked me what I wanted from France and I told him a great picture of the Eiffel Tower. Not only is he a great dentist and boss, but a fabulous photographer. He made me sheets of pictures that I could use on cards. So I stared by using the Long Stem Rose stencil (LL 375) I placed it on gray paper, taped it down on all four sides and then I pasted the image with Black Matte Paste (DMBP) removed the stencil cleaned and dried it. When the paste was dry I repositioned the stencil over the image and daubered glue over the image, gently pounce the glue so it won't go under the stencil. I used the Palette Stamp and Stick glue pad for this. Using a filbert paint brush I gently brushed on Metallic F/X Kimono Red for the flower and Kiwi for the leaves. I like using a paint brush because it gives me more control over where the mica powders go and I use the underlying black paste as my shadow.I tore down the edge of my gray card stock and adhered it to a red notecard, on the torn edge I did not use any adhesive so that I could tuck part of the picture underneath. I added a black polka dotted bow and voila a simple and elegant card. Now if I could just take as great a picture of my card as my boss does or better yet maybe I'll start having him take pictures of my cards. Any way you'all still have time to play with us on the challenge until the end of the month. If you are having touble using Mr. Linky send your picture to Lynell's e-mail and she will feature it on her blog. To all of you who having been playing with us, we have seen some great creative works of art. Everyone have a creative week and we will see you next Thursday.
