This week I am featuring a guest designer. Julie Makela is my distributor from "down under" and has created two scrumptious cards for this month's Valentine's Day challenge.
This first design starts out with her stenciling the lace frame background (LG727) with white pigment ink. To make them look like they were layered she stenciled the one at the top left first and then the next time she placed her stencil she was careful to only stencil the white ink right up to the edge of that first placed frame. This creates an illusion of depth. She then repeated this randomly as she moved the lace frame to other positions. Then she paste-embossed the heart whimsy stencil design (LL599) with the Glossy Red Embossing Paste (DGRP). While this paste was still wet she sprinkled bright red glitter onto the hearts.
The second card was equally effective by using the same colorway of black, red, white, but added a finishing touch of Metallic Gold Embossing Paste (DGP) with the You and Me stencil (LS1004). This time the same heart whimsy stencil (LL599) was paste-embossed with a Matte Black Embossing Paste (DMBP) with the red glitter again sprinkled onto the hearts.
Take the time to visit Julie's blog when you get the chance. She is a wonderfully creative person and has shared many innovative tips and techniques with Dreamweaver over the years.
