Winter Dawn - Sunday 4th November

Hello Friends!

Thanks for stopping by, I do appreciate you taking the time and also leaving a comment. I was missing yesterday - I have plenty of cards to share at the moment but so little time to write the blog! 

Today I am sharing another card I made using the Dreamweaver Bare Trees stencil - I did warn you there would be quite a few as I wanted to try different techniques and I'm barely started! 

This time I have used black card with Indigo Blu Mega- Flakes and Flitterglu. I do love using this product, but have to do it when I have plenty  of time and a clear desk as it can get quite sticky and messy (when I'm using it anyway!!)

The flakes I used are called 'Winter Dawn'...

I used white card as the base layer and matted and layered alternating black and white.

Then I used black card as the base for my stencil. You need to tape the stencil to excess card or your mat on all four sides with low tack tape, this prevents the chance of ruining your creating with movement.

When I have have some time, I will post a tutorial for this technique, because it is good fun to play with it and the resulting stamped or stencilled image is quite lovely.

Meanwhile, hope you like it and thanks for taking the time to stop by!

  7. Hi Carole,
    superb card and technique. I too get very messy when I craft, so I wear an apron. Looking forward to more of these.
    Have a wonderful crafty day.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  8. This is lovely Carole, I think the gilding flakes are amazing. Those trees look as if they are being hit by moonlight. I love messy techniques!!!
