The Woodware Challenge theme this week was chosen by Janet from Japonica in Exmouth the theme is from the song title, and to me it was calling out to be a scrapbook page.
I used the Stamping Guide to get the lines to match up on both sheets of white 12 x 12 card.
I then used Picasso to add some clouds to the background card. I put some tape over the holes so that I didn’t have to be neat.
I used the Sandcastle stencil run it through my Big Shot and then coloured it using the Strie technique.
Big Shot Sandwich (or any other embossing machine)
Works really well with Dreamweaver stencils, but remember your sandwich.
Dreamweaver rubber mat
then 2 plates, make sure that you use flat not curved plates, I keep a brand new pair for stencils.
Strie is a really quick way to colour san embossed image. Use a large stencil brush and load it with ink from an ink pad. Starting off the paper run the stencil brush over the embossed image. starting at the top left and running all the way from top to bottom, and then turn the card and repeat on each side. This gives a sort of linen look.
See you soon!
