Dreamweaver/Mega Flake Tutorial - Saturday 17th November

Hello blog friends,

I hope you are all well and have had a good week - mine has been a bit 'messy' and not in the nice, crafty sense! Wednesdays and Fridays are my non working days and the days where I get my commissions made, work on designs and at the moment, finish making the family and best friends cards...but this Wednesday I took a day out, the bus to the shopping Mall and met a friend for coffee. We do similar jobs for different charities and don't get time to meet, compare notes about work and have a general chat - and this was our only chance before Christmas. So I got nothing done Wednesday except some Christmas shopping (nearly finished) and it was a really long day, so I was tired.

Thursday I had to attend an event out of the office: because I work so few hours having to take time away from my desk is a real nuisance, but heigh ho, I'm here to talk craft not work! Suffice to say, have been feeling really tired this week...

But I did get the final piece of the promised Dreamweaver tutorial photographed, so here 'tis...

I started off with the Indigo Blu Flitter Glu, Winter Dawn Mega Flakes,Scoochie sponge, phat foam and a bowl of warm soapy water
Using removable tape, secure the stencil and card to your mat

Using a palette knife coat the phat foam with the Flitter Glu

Dab the flitter glu all over, you need to move fairly quickly, 'kissing' the stencil but at the same time making sure you coat every bit - especially hard with this intricate stencil!

sprinkle the flakes all over

smooth the flakes with the palm of your hand to get rid of the excess , but don't waste any, tip it back in your container

Using the scoochie rub all over the image

You can rub quite deeply, it will bring up the shine

 Here is the card I made with the resulting image from this tutorial...thanks for stopping by!
