Week #5 of Our Mystical and Magical Challenge




Happy Halloween! This week concludes our Mystical and Magical challenge and is your last opportunity to link up below for a random chance to win a stencil of your choosing from Dreamweaver Stencils. If you want to know more about how to link your creation click HERE.

Thanks again to our guest designer, Alison Heikkila for her wonderful creations during this Spooktacular event. Be sure to follow the links listed below for the Dream it UP team's and her great posts.

Because of the busy-ness in my life, the card today was done by former design team member, Georgia Sommers. Georgia lives and teaches in the bay area. Click HERE to view some of her class projects and find out more if you are interested in taking a class from her.

Georgia created the clouds with the stencil shield called "picasso" (LL332). The paper she used is the pale blue color that you see. Then she stenciled on top of this with shades of purples and toned blues inks. Wherever the shield (LL332) was in place the pale blue paper showed through to make the clouds seem like light was showing through them. The bats stencil (LL525) was then paste-embossed with glossy black embossing paste (DGKP) and sprinkled (while the paste was still wet) with Metallic F/X mica powders in colors of Moonstone, Pixie Blush and Plum Royale. Then when this was drying she cut out the tree using our new die (DX7020) and set it aside to apply later. The words in the lower corner are from the bird words stencil (LG734) and were paste-embossed with the matte black paste (DMBP). Why the matte paste instead of the glossy again? ...it dries faster. The black tree die cut added at the end was just what this spooky card needed. Now please follow the list below and please leave your comments as you make the rounds to what they have to share.
