Wow ... I can't believe how the year is flying by, tomorrow is the start of Fall. Three years ago we moved into this wonderful condo, and now the landlord is returning to California and we have to say goodbye to the condo and hello to a new adventure. I truly believe that when one door closes, another door opens and this week we found a house. I have loved this house ever since I was 5 years old, a friend of mine grew up in this house. Now I will get to live in the house and I can't wait to move in. But on to this weeks creation. With summer almost at an end, I decided to use the Ice Cream Cones stencil (LM 183). I started by picking my card, Doodlebug Designs bubblegum scalloped edge notecard. The next layer is this pretty paper from Melissa Frances called Candie. I then got some white card stock and dry embossed the ice cream cones by running it thru my Big Shot. Leaving the stencil in place I then added color by using a small stencil brush and the following Momento ink colors: Canteloupe, Rosebud, Rich Cocoa and Peanut Brittle ( don't these sound good enough to eat). When I was finished I cut the paper down to the size I wanted and then added a layer of kraft card stock behind it. Before I put the adhesive on the layers though I decided they needed a little distressing. I distressed the white and the decorative layers with Momento Desert Sand and the Kraft with Rich Cocoa then layered them together. My last touch was a sheer brown with white polka dots ribbon.
Now it's your turn, create something fun using Dreamweaver stencils and ink, any kind of ink and then put it on the blog using Mr. Linky. You can also send to Lynell's e-mail address on the web-site. You may be the lucky winner of a stencil of your choice. Hope to see your creations soon.
