Quietfire and Dreamweaver : Awesome In Autumn, Day 2




Get ready for an amazing week of Awesome in Autumn!
This week we are partnering with the Dreamweaver Design Team and are so excited to be playing with their innovative stencils, pastes and glitters!






Follow along with us and leave your comments on each blog for an opportunity to win one of two wonderful prize packages!



Here's what I have created for todays post:

The biggest challenge was accurately capturing the metallic and glitter elements of this card.

The card began with stenciling the stems of  Dreamweaver Gingko Bough Stencil LJ839 with VersaFine Olympia green ink, and the leaves with  Dreamweaver Metallic Gold embossing paste , on a base of K and Company Designer paper.
 Differing pressure on the pallet knife created texture in the paste to make the leaves life like.

There is a bit of magic watching the paste transform from a dull mustard color to a brilliant metallic gold as it dries.

I used post it notes as a mask while stamping the chickadees from the Quietfire Design Woods set. Peaking out among the leaves, the birds are colored with Distress Paint, with a touch of Dreamweaver Metallic F/X Moonstone for added glimmer.


The quote also from the Woods set, is stamped on tracing paper with VersaFine Onyx Black and thermal embossed clear. Distress ink evergreen bough and peeled paint was applied to the back and the panel was glued on with Glossy Accents to make it transparent .
The gold matte layer is 80lb Neenah Solar White card stock, edged in VersaMark, Ranger Sticky embossing powder and Dreamweaver Metallic F/X Goldfinch.
Burnish the powder with your finger for  a super luxe metallic finish.

Quietfire Design Rubber Stamps and digital files and Dreamweaver Metal Stencils are hand drawn and lettered and manufactured to the highest standards to create lifetime tools for your crafting and fine art enjoyment.

I hope this Blog Hop will encourage you to use our tools and look forward to seeing your creations.
