Stampendous! and Dreamweaver Stencils Blog Hop!!


Get ready to be inked, pasted, encrusted, stenciled and stamped! All of this week the Dreamweaver Stencils' Dream Team and the Stampendous Design Teams will be providing some "Dream-pendous" inspiration for you, with multiple opportunities to win some fabulous prizes from both companies. Each day this week, you will be directed from both the Stampendous Impressions' blog or the Dream It Up! blog to the players du jour for your oohing and aaahing pleasure. Everyone will be playing on Saturday, the 14th with our final hop for the week. This is your opportunity to see how to mix and mingle your creativity...if you are a stenciler, you will be fascinated at combining stamps with your first love. If you are a stamper, you will be wowed at how stencils can add to your impressions.


If you arrived here from Krissy's blog then you are right on target! If not then start at the Dream  It Up blog for a day of Dream-pendous inspiration!


For my card today I really wanted to try the technique that Pam had on her blog the other day.  I only got part way through but liked the effect as is so I left it.  I started by using Copper Paste on the Dreamweaver Stencils Open Butterfly stencil and let that dry.  Then I did another layer of Crackle paste on the top and let that dry.  Next I added Antique Linen distress ink over the top with a sponge dauber and quickly poured Clear EP and heated it.


Over the top I stamped Butterfly Post from Stampendous! in distress ink and wiped away the ink over the embossed butterfly.  My background panel is ripped at the bottom and then I added some Versamark ink and Shabby Green Embossing Enamel with touches of Bronze Glass Glitter and Sage Color Fragments.  For a great video on the Encrusted Jewel Technique go HERE.


As a final touch I inked the Thank You stencil with Cosmic Copper ink by Tsukineko then embossed that with Clear EP from Stampendous!


OK, from here hop over to Jingle's blog!

Here's the hop order in case you got lost along the way...Bes sure to leave everyone some love!!
