the hardest thing about our challenge for Try It Out Thursday for Susana’s Custom Art & Card Design this week was finally deciding on ONE idea as i had so many! Suzanne had us use stencils and dreamweaver embossing paste or viva decor modeling cream. i ADORE the crafter’s workshop stencils susana has been bringing in and i am loving using them with modeling cream by viva and embossing paste by dreamweaver. for my project today i used one of the crafter’s workshop stencils paired up with some dee-LISH champagne modeling cream by viva decor:
I used patterned paper to an oldie but goodie (and still one of my faves) – eva by basic grey. i went with a somewhat vintage-y feel with my crocheted trim. anyone remember the threading water punch we all thought we would die without (maybe that was just on the cricut message board…) – i used that for my border and then added some perfect little droplets of Carmine Red Paper Pen from Viva Decor. The paper pens have more of a glossy enamel look rather than a pearlescent or glittery finish.
