This Week's Tiny Treat is All WET!



Pam here today, as Lynell is in wildly busy mode right now...again! She's been prepping madly for our new Dreamweaver Stencils' Teacher Certification program, which at the time that you're reading this, is taking place! If you're interested in future certification classes, or in hiring our certified teachers to come teach in your area, please email lynell@dreamweaverstencils.com or Louise Healy at louisehealy@sbcglobal.net for more info.

If you remember (and how could you not?), all of the month of May we have been playing with the challenge of "Tiny Treats"...those little somethings for the someones in our lives that show we care. I created this darling little pail with some bath gel and a squishy-pouf (technical term) for someone who deserves just a little extra pampering in their life. The feature of my gifty is the brand new Rubber Ducky stencil, which I simply ink stenciled with VersaColor Lime and Cyan inks on the die cut tag, and several times on a piece of white tissue paper. These were torn out and decoupaged onto the pail (Dollar Spot at Target!) with my favorite decoupage medium...Beacon Adhesives' Fast Finish. It is clear, and slightly thin, and easily brushed on both under and over the tissue pieces. Once dry, I brushed the Fast Finish over the entire pail and covered it with Stampendous Multi Crystal Ultra Fine Glitter...nice and sparkly, but transparent enough to see the duckies! I stenciled a die cut fancy label using the Dreamweaver Calligraphy Alphabet with Versamark ink, and embossed with Stampendous White Embossing Powder. The goodies were tucked into the pail, the whole thing into a clear gift bag, and the finishing touch...a perfectly color matched plaid ribbon from May Arts! You'll be seeing plenty of May Arts wonderful product line over the next year as we are working as Partners in Craft with them. Be sure to visit their blog as well for some peeks at more fun projects with Dreamweaver and May Arts.

Here's your opportunity to visit the rest of the Dream Team (B team) for more Tiny Treats. We'd love it if you'd play along with the challenge and link your creation to the linkytool on our blog, or email pics to lynell@dreamweaverstencils.com. Not only do you have an opportunity to win a great stencil prize (selected randomly), but also the chance to have your creation featured on the Dream It Up! blog and our Facebook page! If you haven't already liked us on Facebook, be sure to do so! Our Fan Family have so much fun sharing creations, playing trivia games and going on treasure hunts for prizes. Come join the fun!

What a great little gift idea Pam. I love the addition of the glitter over the whole pail to really bring it all together!
