Challenge 19 CARD


This card is my favorite kind of card to make.  Lots of layers of ink, different textures using more than one layer, stencils. distressing, curling, inking, more inking.  I love the raised look of Embossing Paste.  Isn't this stencil gorgeous?   I wanted to use some cheese cloth, but after searching everywhere I gave up.  I will have Terri order some for me....then I will find my other package as I know I purchased some....know what I mean?
I first started out using the Dream Weaver Hydrangea Stencil, and several Tim Holtz Stencils.
I applied several different colors of ink to get the interesting effect.  I also added half of a Cheery
Lynn doily, some Dry Wall Mesh, colored a charm and wooden leaves.  Everything was inked with Tim Holtz Distressed Ink and Acrylic Paint by Dream Weaver.
If you want any more details, please comment or email me at
One thing I want to tell you...I LOVE Dream Weaver Stencils.  These stencils are metal and they don't tear or bend easily.  Terri is considering carrying them, so take a look at the Dream Weaver web site and see all the gorgeous stencils (and now some dies).  Then drop Terri an email and let her know that you are interested in them.  There are lots of pages, but the page numbers are listed at the top of the page rather than at the bottom, so be sure don't miss them.
