It's the very merry month of May now, and the Dreamweaver Stencils' Dream Team are playing with a new challenge, and we're hoping that YOU will play along! All of this month, we'll be creating for graduations and/or using black and white with a pop of color. May and June are typically the time for grads in the US, but to keep things even more interesting, you can choose to play with our colorway challenge instead.
This month's challenge is Black and White with a pop of color or Graduation. Well as you can see I choose black and white with a pop of yellow. First I taped down my stencil (LL432) birds on a wire on all four sides with removable tape, then I taped off the bird with his head down. I then used Dreamweaver's Black Matte Paste to paste the image and then removed the stencil and cleaned it with warm water. When the paste was dry I repositioned the stencil and taped off all the birds except the one that was not pasted before. I used Dreamweaver's Yellow Matte paste to paste this bird then removed the stencil and cleaned the stencil. While I was waiting for everything to dry, I cut the yellow card and then layered it with black and white gingham paper. I used my computer to make the sentiment. I use this card quite a bit because I work with a group of teenage girls who are always trying to fit in and I just want them to know it 's ok to be different and follow their dream. When the birds were all dry, I layered them to black card stock and then I added a yellow and black ribbon before layering the birds onto the card. I hope you will play along with us this month and link your creation to Mr. Linky which you can link to from the Dream It Up blog. If you have trouble linking to Mr. Linky Just send a picture to Lynell's e-mail and she will make sure your card gets on the blog. Have a great week of creativity and come back next week to see what we come up with. Don't forget to leave us some love, we love to hear what you have to say about our creations as well.
Obviously, to play along with us, you do not have to have a complicated creation, so pull out your supplies and have some fun! Link your creation to the Dream It Up! blog, or email pics of your creation to Lynell@.... We love to post your submissions on the blog as well as the Facebook page. Even more, we love to provide you the opportunity to win one of two sets of two stencils by playing along. You have all of May to link as many creations as you'd like!
