April Showers Bring May Flowers


It's the Dream Teams's last post for the month of April with our interpretation of "Showers to Showers."  It is also our last post together under the direction of Dreamweaver's founder, Lynell Harlow. Some VERY excitig news that many of you already know, Stampendous now owns Dreamweaver Stencils so you will continue to see beautiful creative samples made by the Stampendous Design Team that will be sure to inspire you!

April showers bring May flowers and that is the inspiration I used for my card today.  I had a pile of background papers on my desk that I made a while back and I chose one I made using the Creative Palette and pink, orange and white acrylic paints.  Here is what I did with it.
1.  Lay LJ902 Black Eyed Susan stencil on the painted paper and stencil with Dreamweaver Stencils Embossing paste. Let Dry.
2.  Layer stenciled piece onto a black panel, tie with orange sheer ribbon and glue to an orange card.
3.  Stencil LS56 Dragonfly with Radiant Neon Electric Pink ink, outline with a Gelly Roll Sparkle pen and stamp Flower Path in black VersaFine ink.
4.  Sprinkle Shabby Pink Embossing Enamel in the upper left corner and heat from underneath so the powder doesn't blow off.  Layer onto orange paper and glue to card.

Such a pretty card, Jamie. I love the colors you used. Great idea to make a bunch of background papers at once for use later. I think I need to do that to speed up my own card-making process!

Oh, Jamie! This card reminds me of my sister and her wedding colors in the 70s...hot pink and peachy tones and daisies! This is taking me back a few! Thank you for all the wonderful posts and for being so supportive of Dreamweaver and our products. Hope you will stay in touch....looking forward to seeing more of your work as time marches on.
