Our first winner in the "NEW" Year!

For those of you who've been following the blog...Barbara is the winner for counting the correct number of the word "new" in my last post. There were 14 "new" words in the post, two in the title, five in the first paragraph, (none in the numbered items), two in the next paragraph and 5 in the last paragraph. So if you are reading this Barbara, please email me your snail mail address and I will send you one of our "new" stencil designs for 2011.

The technique shown here is called, "One-Step Cloisonné" and will be another technique that demonstrated in our new DVD, that is all about embossing paste. The teapot stencil (LJ864) was first paste-embossed using the Glossy Black Embossing Paste (DGKP) and then the bird stencil (LG686) was paste-embossed on top of the dried black paste with the regular embossing paste (DEP) with both stencils in place. After the "DEP" dried, I repositioned both stencils again and stenciled the bird and flowers with pigment inks. The pigment ink stays wet longer, so I was able to sprinkle the UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Powder-by Suze Weinberg) on top of the bird design without having to ink it with clear embossing ink. This wet ink holds the thick powder and then I heated it with a heat gun. Makes for a really beautiful effect. And also, because this happens to be a really intricate design, I used the "Picasso" stencil shield (LL332) to create small veins in the leaves and shield out areas that I don't want color on including his small eye and beak.

Thank you to all who are playing along with us on Thursday's Dream Schemes and to those who leave us comments...we love those! This week we will have a free challenge...easy, huh?
