Dreampendousness!

(Yes, that's what you get when Stampendous! and Dreamweaver come together. Just say'n.)


Get ready to be inked, pasted, encrusted, stenciled and stamped! All of this week the Dreamweaver Stencils' Dream Team and the Stampendous Design Teams will be providing some "Dream-pendous" inspiration for you, with multiple opportunities to win some fabulous prizes from both companies. Each day this week, you will be directed from both the Stampendous Impressions' blog or the Dream It Up! blog to the players du jour for your oohing and aaahing pleasure. Everyone will be playing on Saturday, the 14th with our final hop for the week. This is your opportunity to see how to mix and mingle your creativity...if you are a stenciler, you will be fascinated at combining stamps with your first love. If you are a stamper, you will be wowed at how stencils can add to your impressions.

I got to play with the Dreamweaver Rain stencil and the Pearlescent Embossing Paste and I combined those with the Frilly Bird Cage stamp from Stampendous! (available in both wood and cling - wood available at Michael's).


Rainy Day Bird


After affixing my stencil with masking tape and then covering the design with the embossing paste I carefully brushed Pearlex powder over the still wet paste and allowed it to dry. It is a good idea to spray a workable fixatif over this after it has dried to prevent smudges! Then, after it dried completely, I stamped my image, colored the bird, and fussy cut it before adhering it with foam tape. Just a bit of string finishes it off!
