No Words

Our guest designer for the month, Diana Nguyen, takes embossing paste to the next level for this weeks challenge! 

This is my second week as guest designer at Classy Cards 'n Such blog this month! Besides the paper and circle punches, everything I used is from their great Classy Cards 'n Such store (just follow the links). 

The second challenge this month is to make your own background using stencils or a background stamp.  This is my first try at stenciling and using Dreamweaver Regular Embossing Paste. SO FUN!

I wanted the Memory Box Garden Birch Trees to stand out more. After the paste dried, I lined up the stencil and sponged on Peacock Feathers and Squeezed Lemonade, from the Spring 2012 Seasonal Ink Pads by Tim Holtz. Coloring the paste gives it a nice look of dimension on my card. 

I stamped the sentiment from the Our Daily Bread Designs No Words sentiments stamp set. This stamp set has great sentiments for sympathy, sorrow, or to let someone know you care.

I added a single bird, from the Memory Box Resting Birds die cut set, using the silver foil from the  Precious Metals Craft Foil by Spellbinders.

Supplies Used:

Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs No Words
Paper:  Martha Stewart 8x8 Traditional pack
Dies: Memory Box Resting Birds
Inks:  Spring 2012 Seasonal Ink Pads by Tim Holtz, and Tumbled Glass
Memory Box Garden Birch Trees
Precious Metals Craft Foil by Spellbinders

Thanks for looking and hope you can play along!
