Mists, Drizzles and Showers!


Welcome to the new monthly Dreamweaver challenge: "Mists, Drizzles and Showers"!

Today I am excited to welcome new Dream Team members: Lyn BernatovichHeidi Erickson and Jessica Griffin  as well as guest designer Alison Heikkila to our weekly challenge. Please be sure to hop on over to their blogs and give them a warm welcome.

The Dream Team is now twice as large as before with twelve members so we've divided into two groups, each person posting twice a month. I will continue to post every week but am looking forward to only having to post twice a month!

This month's challenge is a fun one. You can take the theme literally as I did below or you can go figuratively and think of techniques like spray mists or drops of alcohol ink. Its pretty wide open. Its a great challenge to get your feet "wet" (pun intended) in joining the Dreamweaver Challenge. All you need to do is post your creation on your blog, an online gallery and then link it up on the  Dream It UP! blog, or email pictures of your projects to lynell@dreamweaverstencils.com.

For my post today, I paste embossed the LG 737 Umbrella stencil with the original Dreamweaver paste and then colored it using pigment inks. I also paste embossed the LJ905 Rain stencil with silver paste onto a piece of transparency and while the paste was still wet, sprinkled it with glitter. I love this card because it helps me get through the very rainy spring we typically have here in the Pacific Northwest by reminding me that flowers will be the wonderful end result of all the grey and rainy days!



Here's the list of our team players for this week including our guest designer:

I'll be back next week with some stamping creations as well as another Dreamweaver challenge post! Until then, happy spring and happy creating.

I just read your profile, and see that you are Mrsclam at split Coast Stampers. I would often look at your beautiful cards there, and wonder who Mrs Clam was...Now I know the mystery is solved...
