Autumn is Here!

I went to a Stenciling class on October 2nd and this is what I accomplished, with expert help form our teacher at The Stamp Art Shoppe.  I used the same stencil, but they look totally different, don't they?
This is a new Dreamweaver Stencil "Oak Leaves" and we got to play with it on different textures.  

All cards are dry embossed.   
The first card: The top rough panel was stippled with different ink colors, then Translucent Embossing Paste was applied with the stencil still in place.   The Oak Leaves stencil was removed and glitter was sprinkled onto the wet paste and the panel was left to dry.  The dried panel was attached to the dry embossed brick panel which  was quite glossy and had Memory Box pads applied directly to the panel, then wiped off.  Some ribbon and a greeting completed this card.  I'm very happy with it.

Mirror paper was stenciled and many colors of Distressed Stickles was applied with the Oak Leaves stencil in place.  The mirror panel was attached to a dry embossed silvery panel and that panel then adhered to a dark green note card.

This pre-embossed white panel was used to dry emboss the Oak Leaves on a light table.  With the stencil in place, the image was painted with a stipple brush dabbed in Fall colors.  I then put the card together and adhered the Heart Winged Butterfly I had stamped and embossed in white and stippled with distress inks..  

You can find inks, distress Stickles, and stamps at our sponsor, Creative Play.
