Festive Fall

Hi there!  It's Stampendous Dreamweaver Thursday and this week we're celebrating Fall.  My card today uses The Great Pumpkin stencil, one of my favorite fall Dreamweaver Stencils.  I also used one of my favorite techniques, airbrushing onto a glittered sticky panel.  I'm a complete sucker for anything sparkly and there's nothing with more sparkle than the Multi Fine Crystal Glitter from Stampendous.  I love that glitter in all it's forms, Fine, Ultra Fine, Medium and Micro; it's simply stunning!  Here's my card for this week, I apologize in advance for the slight shadowing on the right side but it's hard to get a good picture with so much sparkle going on.

Here's what I used to create this card:

Bo Bunny Apple Cider Collection
Light Orange Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper
May Arts Ribbon
Zip Dry Paper Glue by Beacon Adhesives

Here's what I did to create this card:

Cut a piece of sticky panel to fit the stencil and cover with crystal glitter
Place stencil on panel and airbrush by masking off sections and doing the smaller sections first
Once airbrushing is complete, go back and add detail and shading with markers (you must use quick flicks and strokes as the alcohol can affect the adhesion of the glitter)
Trim other layers of patterned paper as shown
Create a card base and a mat for the stenciled piece from solid cardstock
Adhere layers as shown
Create bow and attach to front of card

Here's a list of my teammates that are playing along today:

That's it for me today.  I hope you enjoy the card I created and hopefully it will inspire you to create a little fall of your own.  I'll see you again tomorrow with some more fun fall inspiration.  Have a wonderful day!
