Dreamweaver Stencils February Challenge

Its your last week to go green at Dreamweaver Stencils!  This Thursday be sure to visit the rest of the Dream Team and see what everyone has created for you!  I pulled out a new stencil from CHA called Flower Quatrefoil.  I paste embossed my stencil with Glossy white then partially dried it, speeding up the process with my heat gun (Note: a warming tray is way better, the paste can flatten if you hit the heat too directly on to it)  While the paste was almost dry I swiped some Glacier and Kiwi Metallic FX across the raised area with a stencil brush.

Here's a closer shot at the flowers in all their shimmery beauty.  I also added a bit of a border with one of my EK Success punches.

My sentiment is also paste embossed and Metallic FXed in the same manner using Birthday words stencil.

Please be sure to join us this last week of February for a chance to win a gorgeous flower stencil!
