the hardest thing about our challenge this week was finally deciding on ONE idea as i had so many! i ADORE the crafter's workshop stencils susana has been bringing in and i am loving using them with modeling cream by viva and embossing paste by dreamweaver. for my project today i used one of the crafter's workshop stencils paired up with some dee-LISH champagne modeling cream by viva decor:
I used patterned paper to an oldie but goodie (and still one of my faves) - eva by basic grey. i went with a somewhat vintage-y feel with my crocheted trim. anyone remember the threading water punch we all thought we would die without (maybe that was just on the cricut message board...) - i used that for my border and then added some perfect little droplets of Carmine Red Paper Pen from Viva Decor. The paper pens have more of a glossy enamel look rather than a pearlescent or glittery finish.
For my focal piece i simply laid my stencil on my paper, gently smoothed the modeling creme acros the top like icing a cake and then lifted. Rinse your stencils right away! while still wet i sprinkled the center with a bit of Glamour Dust to add to the delicate pearlescence of the Modeling Cream.
To finish it off i simply placed a gorgeous mulberry flower from petaloo in the center. i am quite pleased with the results! This stencil comes with 4 different flower designs and the possibilities are endless as to what you can place in the center to personalize the look - nothing like a purchase of something you can use LOTS of times!
well i hope everyone has a fabulous weekend planned for them!
