Thursday's Dream Schemes/Sketch Challenge

Good morning! Thanks for joining us this Thursday for our sketch challenge. This particular sketch comes to us all the way from Nova Scotia. Deborah March is our design team leader and she has a beautiful blog that is a "must see". Follow the list on the sidebar at the right and starting with Deborah visit our team's blogs to see how they have interpreted her sketch. Also play along and design a creation to share with us.

I used the "double glitter technique" on this fuchsia stencil (LL543) using microfine transparent glitters in a light pink and light green. Then I added brighter colors by stenciling on top of those light colored glitters with pigment ink from the "circus" Splendor ink pad by Tsukineko. Once I removed the stencil I did the background in a transparent crystal glitter by Stampendous. The veins down the center of the leaves was accomplished by using a curved edge of the Picasso stencil shield (LL332) and stenciling off the edge of the shield with a small stencil brush. If you would like me to email you the double glitter instructions email me at The "thank you" (LG691) at the bottom was paste-embossed with the Glossy Black Embossing Paste (DGKP). The background is a new Striped stencil (LX7002) and I am calling it a "plaidmaker", because you can stencil in one direction and then turn it 90 degrees and stencil in the other direction and create a plaid look. This can be done with inks and a dauber, or the Memory Mists, or even the embossing pastes. I will be sharing more on these techniques as soon as the stencil is ready to sell. We are waiting for our order to come in, but hopefully next week should be the week! In the meantime we are going to tease you with some of the new designs...there are sixteen of them. No, you won't be able to buy them yet, but the design team has been working with them and will give you some great ideas to tease you with. Enjoy your week of creating!

I love the double glitter technique--especially when it is stencilled on! The small medallion is beautiful. The new stripe stencil really sets it off, too.
