Sneak Peek #3

Are you having as much fun as I am checking out the daily postings of the Dreamweaver Design Team? I love how everyone was sent the same stencils and we each interpreted them so many different ways!

Today I am sharing one of my favorites from this launch. Its called Tall Poppies.

I must admit though that I struggled with this card quite a bit. I sometimes get frustrated because my cards are always so CAS (clean and simple) yet when I try to complicate them it takes away from the beauty of the stencil. So after struggling on how busy to make this, I opted for the simple route and actually like the final product:

I first sponged a piece of white cardstock with Brilliance Pearlescent Crimson. Then using black matte paste I embossed the Tall poppy stencil and topped it with black glitter for just a hint of shimmer.

The background is the same stencil just sponged with a silver ink onto a grey cardstock. Very subtle and really emphasizes the elegance of the stencil. I only wish my photography was better so you could get a clear look at the finished product.

Now head on over to the other Dream Team blogs (links on the right) and check out what they've cooked up for today!

This is awesome! Love the gradient shading on the focal point, and the beautiful background that you created with the stencil as well! This one needs to go on the FB page!
