Imagine Crafts New StazOn Pads from Tsukineko
Stencils and Dies Prize Package
With Father's Day around the corner I couldn't resist doing my first creation for this collaboration with "DAD" in mind. This is what the inside of my card looks like. I paste-embossed the Dreawmeaver Gold Embossing Paste (DGP) using the Happy Father's Day stencil (LM244) on the inside of my black card and heated it with a heat gun to give it the molten magic look. Then I went crazy playing with the wonderful products below.

Here are the two Imagine Crafts products that inspired me:


This yummy gold pigment ink was easy to use and had such good coverage that I actually had to use a very light touch to get some of the black paper to show through with the stenciling. I stenciled the mosaic stencil (LJ901) with this Delicata metallic ink onto a panel of black cardstock and then set it aside to dry while I played with more new products in the next step.

This irRESISTible spray by Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko squirts out in splatters onto the card stock. If you are expecting only a fine mist ....get that idea out of your head, it sprays both fine and large splots. I sprayed it onto a gray cardstock and the metallic splots took a few minutes to dry. Once it is dry, if you run your hand over the paper they are actually raised or embossed. It's a very interested idea...I LIKE IT! And once I got going I became distracted and was trying every color they had, believe me you will want to do the same.  I don't know about you but I find working with sprays very addictive. But I digress....enough about my addictions, back to...well...my addictions.

I then traced the elephant stencil (LG756) onto the backside of the gray splattered cardstock and had Wayne assist me in the process by cutting out the pieces of the elephant with a craft knife. I later did another one and found that my handy cuticle scissors work well too, so if you don't have a hubby who's crafty or artistic it isn't hard to fussy cut this guy out. I am going to use the cut out pieces on a card for Tuesday, but here is what the card looks like once I placed the gray cut out piece (the negative...it looks like a stencil doesn't it?) over the black and gold mosaic stenciled piece which was done earlier...very elegant and manly, don't you think? I HAD to put the metallic bow on his tail, just to add that touch of well, ...this is from your daughter or this is from the mother of your children or,....just need to tone down the testosterone a bit by adding a bow.
Just Imagine the possibilities of what everyone has created! Be sure to leave some nice comments for a chance to win the goodies listed above.
