Thursday's Dream Schemes/Seeing Green this Spring

Created by original design team member Heidi Mellor
We are continuing our Bloomin' Spring theme this month with a four leaf clover creation by one of the young people that originally worked here at Dreamweaver Stencils. Heidi Mellor and my daughter Elizabeth were good buddies in high school and worked every opportunity they could here. Heidi later went on to get her degree in architecture at the University of Calif. Berkeley. and my daughter is now a Physical Therapist. They both still love creating with paper and we have spent many hours making wedding announcements for friends and family. Now we have a wonderful design team carrying on the design duties, but when I decided to do this week's post surrounding St. Patrick's Day I found this card by Heidi in our card archives. 

The center four leaf clover (LS58) was stenciled and then outlined and speckled with a gold metallic pen, then a micron pen was used to create a shadow effect. The two flanking leaves were paste-embossed with the green embossing paste (DGGP) and once dry the clean stencil was repositioned and daubed with a pale green Brilliance ink. The background was randomly stenciled with a pigment ink and the same four leaf clover stencil.

I am feeling a bit nostalgic tonight...yet we are looking forward to revealing the new design team next Thursday. Please stop back to see their work. Remember to join our challenge click HERE and link your work to mr. linky. Our March theme is Bloomin' Spring...it could be Easter, St. Pat's Day or any bloomin' flower or singin' bird. If you don't have a blog then feel free to email me your creation at lynell@dreamweaverstencils.com and I will post it for you on my site. Our random winner will win a stencil of their choosin'. Don't forget to visit the design team's blogs to see what they are creatin'.

Lynell, I love the card and the story that accompanies it! And since it is a St. Patrick's Day theme, I'll close with an old Irish saying:

What do you get when you cross poison ivy with a four-leaf clover? A rash of good luck. ~Author Unknown
