Shower to shower week 2

Ever use the expression, "When it rains, it pours"? This does not have to be a bad thing, does it? For the month of April, the Dream Team are featuring "Showers of Showers" as our theme. As usual, we'd love for you to play along. Just link your creation on the Dream It Up! blog for a chance to win the stencil of your choice...bonus chances for incorporating Dreamweaver and/or Stampendous in your design. Here's what I'm showering you with this week...

The theme Showers to shower brings up lots of ideas............rain showers.

All the above have special memories for everyone and I think its really good if the stationary for these events are memorable.  So this week I have decided to go for the wedding theme. As spring arrives and summer is on its way the Wedding season kicks off.  I also thought that the 'shower' card could also be continued through the rest of the wedding stationary.

So here is my idea for this week

The things I used were as follows:-

Dreamweaver Stencil LL3020
Black Pigma Micron pens 0.3 and 0.05
White liquid pearls
Stampendous ultra fine glitter in a colour of you choice ( I used mint )
White card
Black card Blue patterned paper or card
Low tack tape

and this is how I put the card together:-

1 Take the stencil and attach to a piece of white card using low tack tape and using the Black Pigma Micron 0.05 pen draw the stencil design, once this is done done flip the stencil over and repeat the drawing stage.

2 Remove the stencil and start to doodle / stentangle all the areas of the design.

3 Cut all the matts and layers for your Shower card, and then layer these on to the base card.

4 To finish the card off I used the White Liquid Pearls and randomly put dots all over the card, in the centre of the design I put a heart shape using the dots of liquid pearl and over this I scattered the ultra fine glitter
