Delicious, Sweet and what a Treat

Dream Team member, Liz Martin, used the Pearlescent Embossing Paste to create this shimmery treat using our ice cream sundae stencil (LL431). Once it was dry she repositioned the stencil and stenciled the entire area with the Palette Stamp and Stick Glue. Even though the instructions ask you to heat the glue to make it tacky...we have discovered that isn't necessary when you are applying the Metallic F/X, so she then stenciled the powders onto the glue while the stencil was still in position. You can use the Picasso stencil shield to keep the colors from overlapping or your can mask out the areas one at a time as you are stenciling. Liz stenciled the cherry and stem with ink and applied glitter glue to the whipped cream to give more dimension and sparkle. When the sundae was dry she cut the image with one of the oval Nestabilities dies using a die cutting machine. To top it off, (so to speak) she edged the piece with a bright pink ink and mounted it on the pink and brown striped cardstock. There will be more sweet things to pay attention if you have a sweet tooth.
