Bonus points for using Dreamweaver and/or Stampendous product in your work of heart.

A total change in themes this month.  I thought I wouldn't do a card but something that could be a small 'present' or thank you.  Dreamweaver Stencils and Stampendous products work so well together, here is my effort combining the two.

What you will need:-

Dreamweaver stencil LJ899
Silver Embossing paste
Palette knife / spreader
Stampendous Stack Art - Kraftboard Angel wings
Stampendous Frantage encrusted purple jewel kit
Small piece of black lace
Low tack tape
Versa Mark ink pad
Lilac acrylic paint
Blending dauber
Distress ink pad - Dusty Concord
Paper flowers
Lilac ribbon
Paint brush
Heat Gun

and here is how to complete the card:-

1 Take the backing  panel from the Stack Art Kraftboard and the tag, remove the internal pieces from the tag and paint the two pieces with the lilac acrylic paint. Cover them completely.

2 Once painted put them to one side to dry.

3 When dry take the backing panel and attach the stencil to it with low tack tape.  Because the panel was small and there were lots of areas the would waste paste I taped the panel on all four sides on the top of the stencil and on the back of the panel. Apply the paste with the palette knife, remove the stencil and put in water ready for cleaning and put the panel to the side to dry.

4 Take the tag and randomly stamp small areas with the Versamark ink pad, scatter the Purple encrusted jewel products on to this.  Use the heat gun to heat the powders and get the textured surface.

5 When the paste has dried take the finger dauber and the Dusty Concorde ink pad and distress the edges of both the panel and tag

6 Cut one of the sayings from the sentiment sheet and go around the edge with the Dusty Concord ink pad blending into the centre so that the cream colour of the card is changed only slightly.

7 To ensure the ink was dry on the panel and tag I used a piece of kitchen paper and gently buffed them to remove any ink still wet.

8 The sentiment panel was attached to the back of the tag covering the aperture, and the tag was then fixed to the back panel with 3D foam squares.

9 I trimmed the wires from the flowers and placed them on to the panel in the bottom left hand corner, I stuck them with a strong wet glue but you could use a hot glue gun.

10 The final step is to tie 2 bows and attach them to the top of the backing panel and the tag

Thats it the project is complete.  Hope you like it.
