Welcome to another Dreamweaver challenge and tutorial! I fell in love with this stencil as it is all you need for the basis of creating a card! The rest is just layers and adding a few embellishments. Add some gems right onto the script for some pretties! The flowers were hand cut and mounted with foam tape. They were sanded and bent to create dimension. Basic Grey’s Lucille were the papers I used.
Here’s how I created the awesome script using the LL565 stencil:
I used white Gesso and evenly troweled it using the LM2010 Dreamweaver Embossing Paste Spreader over the stencil. The stencil was held in place with sticky notes.
Carefully remove the sticky notes and lift off the stencil. Let the Gesso dry on its own or heat set.
The same technique was done to create the polka dot ‘photo corners.’
See how nice and smooth the Gesso has been spread over the stencil?
Remove the sticky notes and stencil and there’s all those cute little polka dots! I accidentally smeared it with my finger but I knew I’d just be punching out areas so I didn’t freak out about it.
But wait! Don’t go washing that stencil yet! Lay it on a second sheet and burnish it evenly with your hand or another piece of paper. This will be used for another project.
All that’s left is assembling the card. The dimensions of the finished card are 7-1/4 x 4 inches and will fit in a #10 legal-size envelope nicely. Stop by Friday’s Sketch Challenge on January 11th and check out the template I designed for this card as well as what I did with the positive and negative polka dots!
