Dream a little dream...

...of some awesome stencils and stamps!



It's fun in the sun time again with another collaboration between Stampendous and Dreamweaver Stencils! We'll be playing together all of this week, with a fabulous hop on Friday, August 2nd, featuring a slew of amazing talent from both teams, and of course...prizes!!!

Two prize packages will be given away for the comments left on posts Monday-Thursday, July 29th - August 1st, and one prize will be given away for comments left on the hop day, Friday, August 2nd. Winners will be selected randomly and announced Thursday, August 8th. (Note: USA addresses only, please, due to shipping costs.) Here's what you could win:

Stampendous Surfer and Sandcastle Kiddos • Dreamweaver Hot Air Balloon, Ice Cream Cones, Summer, Mosaic Swirls, Bird Words, and Sandcastle stencils  


 Here's what I created:


I used Dreamweaver Stencil LJ 896 Large Flourish and embossed it with white embossing paste on Neenah Classic Crest CS.  Once dry I trimmed it down to size and colored it with Copic markers to add my ocean blues.  Next I used my VersaMarker pen and added some Chunky White Embossing Enamel from the Stampendous White Encrusted Jewel Kit just on the "frothy" parts of my wave.  I set that aside and stamped the Stampendous Surfer Kiddo, colored him with my Copic markers and fussy cut him out to set aside until assembly time.  I printed off my sentiment from the Stampendous Surfin Kiddos Digital Download selections, trimmed it down, layered it, and added a touch of blue. Then came assembly time!  I created my card base from Bazzill, adhered my stenciled piece, pop-dotted my little Surfer Kiddo and added my layered sentiment with pop dots.  A very simple card but I love how it turned out with the "wave" splashing up behind him! Now, hop on over to the next in line. Don't forget to leave some love for a chance to win, and just 'cuz it's nice!


Thanks for stopping by today, I'll have another post on Thursday.  Your comments are so appreciated!  See you again, soon!

Hugs,
Lea

  18. This little surfer boy is just adorable. I'm thinking he might have to be added to my wishlist! The background is perfect with all the layers of color, perfect or waves. I would not have though as swirls as waves but it is a fabulous effect!
