Thursday's Dream Schemes/Free Challenge Today!


This Japanese Maple, four seasons card, is done by Dream Team member, Pam Hornschu. The Japanese Maple stencil (LJ906) was paste-embossed with the regular matte "Dreamweaver Embossing Paste"(DEP) onto an ivory cardstock. Then once it was dry she cut the card into four equal pieces 1 1/4" x 4 1/2" long. She then stenciled one of the leaves  a red/orange Fall color with inks and totally cut out one of the leaves, then mounted it with foam tape. The Summer green was stenciled with a more intense green and the Spring motif was stenciled with a...well...Spring green. To add the shading she used markers and stroked in colors to add a shaded effect. At the bottom of each panel she used a wavy EK edger punch. Then she mounted them all onto a dark brown cardstock. She achieved Winter by not doing any leaves from the branch....as usual a beautiful clever creation Pam!
