This is our sketch :
I have been playing with my stencils this week. As Autumn is fast approaching it reminded me that I had a lovely Dreamweaver stencil of a branch of maple leaves.
I wanted to use the stencil on a darkish blended background so I used Matt Black Embossing paste. I also used the new Dreamweaver pasting tool to spread my paste and it worked an absolute treat. When I did workshops using paste I found several of the ladies struggled with a palette knife. But this new tool is so easy. It is basically a long semi-circle of metal, easy to grip and wide enough to paste even large stencils in one or two sweeps!!
I layered up with some bronze card and the gold panel was stamped with leaves in gold and embossed with gold powder.
To finish of I die-cut and embossed a leaf from copper foil sheet. This is a great product that Woodware sell. It is nice and thick and so retains it's shape when die-cut. It also comes in gold and silver.
Have a good weekend, although the weather is not meant to be good ... at least it's an excuse to get some time crafting!!
