Old, New, Borrowed, Blue

At Dreamweaver Stencils, we love to make our monthly challenges something for everyone, and not so strict that no one wants to play along. This month our challenge is, "Old, New, Borrowed, Blue", with the obvious thought being a wedding theme...but not necessarily. Add an old embellishment or picture. Use a new stencil design or technique. Borrow, or CASE (copy and say everything) another designers project, and obviously, blue. Where will YOUR creative process take you for this month? We'd love to see! And remember, linking your creations with the Inklinkz tool at the end of the team posts, provides you with the opportunity to win the stencil of your choice! Here's what I've created for this week...

Here's what I used to create this project:

Dreamweaver Stencils© Your Wedding Stencil LL 3034
Dreamweaver Stencils© Lace Rectangle Stencil LJ 839
Dreamweaver Stencils© Black Embossing Paste
Stampendous® Stamps Kaleidoscope Sparkle Embossing Paste
Tsukineko®/Imagine Crafts® Delicata Pigment Ink Pad in Silvery Shimmer
May Arts Ribbon®
Bazzill® Cardstock
Spellbinder® Die
Beacon Adhesive® Zip Dry™
Foam Mounting Squares

Here's what I did to create this project:

Paste embossed Your Wedding stencil with matte black embossing paste, set aside to dry
Next, brush/ink-stencil the Lace Rectangle stencil with silver pigment ink and then apply sparkle embossing powder and heat emboss
Once black paste is dry, cover the black paste with the same silver pigment ink and then apply the embossing powder and heat emboss (Originally I had planned to keep it black)
Trim the Lace Rectangle piece close to the edges and adhere ribbon
Create card base and adhere Lace Rectangle piece to card base
Die cut the sentiment and attach foam mounting squares and adhere to card

I know the challenge specifically mentions blue but I've always loved lavender and silver together so that set my color scheme.  The lavender is actually what made me choose to use the embossing powder I used, I love that it has a lavender sheen to it when turned certain ways in the light.  It's so pretty in real life!  A simple, yet elegant, wedding card!

Here's what our "A" team has been working on this week:

That's it for me this week, I'll see you next week!  Until then, have a wonderful day!
