Dreamweaver and Quietfire Design, Day Three


Get ready for an amazing week of Awesome in Autumn! This week we are playing with the Quietfire Design team, and are so excited to play with their amazing images and sentiments. In their beautiful calligraphic style, their quotes and thoughts are the perfect addition to our Dreamweaver designs. Follow along with us, and leave your comments for an opportunity to win one of two wonderful prize packages:



Flower Stencil (LX7021) and Faery Stamp (#6080)
I have had my Faery Stamp (#6080) for some time and when we designed the Flower Corner Stencil (LX70210) it seemed like an appropriate collaboration. Today is a continuation of our Quietfire Blog Hop and our Awesome Autumn cross promo with Art Glitter. This card was paste-embossed with Copper Metallic Embossing Paste (DCP) and then the following glitters were applied using a straw cut at an angle (this created a small scoop for very specific application):

One of the things that happens when you are putting the glitter onto embossing pastes in a deliberate way with the straw is that it may take five or ten minutes and the paste is drying the whole time, so this is why I used a base of the copper paste. That way if a small area does not attach to the dried paste the copper color shines through for the continued Autumn theme.

The Quietfire faerie sentiment was stamped with pigment ink and a gold embossing powder was sprinkled and then heated for more golden goodness. It is a striking contrast with the black.

If you are here to post your challenge card scroll down to the linky tool below.
