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.
I had a lot of fun mixing products and techniques for this card! I started with LL588 Dragon stencil from Dreamweaver Stencils and dry embossed the dragon onto the white pattern paper. Next I added Versamark Ink to the open areas using a large dauber. After I removed the stencil I sprinkled 4 colors of Stampendous! embossing powder onto the dragon using the Painting with Powder technique. Chinese Red, Parprika, and Ruby Red EP are all found in the Scenic Collection and I accented the dragon with Pirate Gold EP.
I also used the same technique to emboss one of the lanterns from LL550 Party Lanterns and then cut this out to add as an embellishment. On the side panel I stamped the large circular medallion from Jumbo Thinking of You and embossed it in more of the Pirate Gold EP.
Most of the edges of my card stock were distressed with Vintage Sepia Versafine ink from Tsukineko and/or encrusted with Stampendous! powders and mica fragments. All papers are from the Basic Grey Konnichiwa paper collection.
