Dreamweaver Stencils February Challenge

First a bit of catch up after CHA...the winner of the 3rd Scrappy Chick Sketch Challenge is Agnes!  Please email me with you snail mail and I will get your prize to you!  Thanks for playing along!  

And now its time for a new challenge at Dreamweaver Stencils!  Check out the Dream It Up blog for all the details!  This month is all aboutGo Green or Go Brah.  I chose to use the green theme :)

My card features the new Tall Poppy stencil embossed with Translucent paste.  I then added bits of Ivy Garden and Navajo Sky Metallic fx powders by tapping the color on with a q-tip while the paste is still wet.  I also dry embossed the background panel using my Cuttlebug with the new background Paisleys stencil.  I rubbed my Peeled Paint distress ink pad directly over the embossed areas to bring out the texture.

Be sure to check out inspiration from the rest of the Dream Team:


  1. This is a beautiful card Cyndi!!! I need to do more with that technique, there are so many possibilities.
