Okay, so I know I had a personal goal of using the same stencil in a different way every week, but we just got in a new product called Inka Gold, and I couldn't wait to play with it! I was taught the technique on an Embossing Folder, but you KNOW my brain strayed to Dreamweaver Stencils!
This Pointsetta Stencil LG 700 is one of my ALL TIME favorite images, but I'm afraid to admit that this is the first time I've dared to pull it out of it's package! All those tiny "bridges", they were sure to cause me some sort of trouble! Well, I'm awfully glad that I chose this stencil as my first foray into Ink Gold! I dry embossed the Stencil onto Black Cardstock (Grasscloth texture) and then with my finger, rubbed Old Gold, Copper, Lava Red and Lava Green into the embossed image. I layered the colours randomly, and completely fell in love with the detail on this stencil!
I now have the courage to try more techniques with this image, as it's not as delicate as it looks! can you imagine it with glitter!? Oh my heart is all a flutter! Now the Inka Gold is a thickish paste, and I want to try the same idea using Dreamweavers Colour F/X, I think the softness of the powders will really compliment this stencil, and the shine will be just as beautiful! These pictures don't show the shine off to it's best, but stop in the store and check it out for yourself! I'm going to be doing a Demo on Saturday @ 2pm and I'll show you how easy it is to Dry emboss your stencils, and how beautifully they are complimented by the Inka Gold!!
Don't forget to post your samples to Mr Linky, the projects I've seen so far have been very inspiring, keep up the great work!!
And with that,
Stencil til you sprout wings,
Paste til you pop ,
and add colour to your craft when it's raining and gray outside!
