Thursday's Dream Schemes/A double take

Yesterday's posting was one day early for the Cardabilities sponsorship....read all about it in my Wednesday post. There are gift certificates involved too. Hope some of you will play along. As I prepared for that sketch challenge I made two cards. Just couldn't decide how dramatic to interpret our monthly colorway sketch of turquoise/dark brown/craft brown and neutral. Soooo when I was overtaken with a creative attack I made this card in several variations and here is #2. I found I really loved Karan Gerber's sketch and am planning some Valentine's Day cards with this sketch to send to special loved ones. Her sketch is also posted on Wednesday's post. Be sure to follow the sidebar at the right and see what our design team has been up to the last couple of days.

I paste embossed first by mixing the Navajo Blue Metallic F/X into the pearlescent embossing paste (DPP) and used our new damask stencil (LX7002). The new paste spreader (LM2010) is long and really addresses using embossing paste with large background stencils. Then I sprinkled turquoise flocking from Stampendous (fun flock) all over the design while it was wet. So here's hoping you have a creative attack too and join us in the Cardabilites sketch challenge.

Barbara, I think all you have to do is click on follow and then you will be notified when I post something new. I am off to a trade show, so won't get a chance to connect with you again, but give us a try. Thank you!

Lynell,

Love the new stencils. Can't wait to get my hands on them. AND I am totally loving your flocking cards. Absolutely stunning and inspiring.

Glad I could participate in the challenge. Wish I could be with all of you at CHA but since I'm stuck home recovering from my surgery, I guess playing along in the challenge is a close second!
