Wood ware collaboration day 5

Yes! It's that time of year again! The time when we inspire crafters on both sides of the "pond" with a mix of bothDreamweaver and Woodware UK* products for the holidays! Six days, SIX, of beautiful, elegant, merry, cute, artsy, and craftsy projects to have you heading out to your local stores or internet sites to buy these goodies immediately!

Of course, there will be prizes as well. Three prize packages will be given to three commenters during this week's posts on the team's blogs, including five stencils and one nested die set. You can have an opportunity to win these goodies by leaving some holiday sweetness for each team member posting each day, to be one of the three winners for the week. Here are the team members that are inspiring you today:

The fifth day has arrived, and no Christmas would be complete without the mention of mistletoe, its all part of the traditional Christmas. I think we all a traditional Christmas and here is my 'traditional' project.

This what I used:-
Dreamweaver stencil Merry Christmas
Gold Embossing paste
Palette knife
Low tack tape
Quickie glue pen
Acrylic block
Stampendous Crystal Glitter
Colorbox Farmhouse ink pad
Red Tombow pen
Versafine Vintage sepia and smoked grey

and this is what you will do:-
Use a scrap of cream card and stamp the Mistletoe image towards the top of the card using Versafine black onyx.  Colouring the image was done as follows, the bow was coloured with the red tombow pen, the mistletoe leaves were coloured with the green ink on the ColorBox Farmhouse and a water brush, and the mistletoe berries were coloured with the smoke grey Versafine ink pad.  To complete the berries I coloured over the top with a quickie glue pen, once the ink had dried to clear I covered with the Stampendous crystal glitter and removed the excess back to the pot.

The last part of the panel was the Merry Christmas.  Take the stencil and attach to the panel with low tack tape on all 4 sides.  Apply the embossing paste using the palette knife.  Remove the stencil and put the panel to the side to dry, and wash the stencil.

Once the paste has completely dried put the card together and then using the rouging technique use a stencil brush and vintage sepia ink pad to tone the cream card down.

Theres your card, hope you like it.  The rest of the team have been creating for you. Here are the projects they have completed.

If you are in the UK or Europe and would like to purchase any of the products for the above project they are all available from The Stampman or your local Woodware Stockist and Notions Marketing in the USA..
