Shades of blue..

Ok I haven’t used my Dreamweaver Stencil with the embossing paste, I’m not quite brave enough yet. Instead I used it as a stencil and sponged memento summer sky, danube blue and paris dusk.

I will be entering this into the Less is More Challenge.

Cowardly or otherwise this IS a lovely card and such a pretty stencil.

You could always try watching some embossing paste vids on youtube ..........

Go on, you know you want to!

I like the way you used shades of blue in your stencil and attached it on the diagonal.

Stencils are so versatile and I love the two tone effect you've achieved by sponging through the stencil. Lovely card :)

Mandi said...

The sponging looks lovely Debs. i think I;d have been tempted to place the dragonfly square on, or directly onto the card, but, of course that may have messed up! Far safer to matt.
Do like your card, only a little observation, no offence
Thank you
