February Flutters

The Dreamweaver challenge for the month of February is "February Flutters" meaning anything that flutters. Heart flutters, wings that flutter, breezes, curtains, sails, etc.

I hope you will  come along for the ride and link your own "flutterings" to the Dream It Up! blog for a chance to win the stencil of your choice.

Since tomorrow is Valentine's Day, I thought I'd go with the heart flutters theme:

The flower background stencil is Dreamweaver Flower Lace LJ820. I absolutely love using this stencil with the double glitter technique because it is so dramatic. I also used this same stencil to emboss the red aluminum which I then sanded to highlight the embossed flowers and cut into a heart with my Spellbinders heart die.

The Happy Valentine's stencil LM241 is a classic and must-have in my book! I used the white glossy paste for contrast and then covered the wet paste with red microfine glitter.

I love the dramatic romantic feel of this card, don't you?

Speaking of challenges, check out the rest of the AMAZING Dream Team's blogs to see what they came up with this week:

Wonderful traditional Valentine! Love the little heart of aluminum (instead of a heart of gold)!
