Thanks...PDCC26 53

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, April 21, 2010 @ 8:57 PM | ,

Hi Friends :) Hope you are all having a wonderful week! This week Julie chose these beautiful jewelry findings to refer to for color inspiration. Mod Podge Rocks is sponsoring this week's challenge, please be sure to visit The Play Date Cafe for all the juicy details!
Here is my interpretation of these colors:
I learned so much at the Spellbinder's DT Retreat over the past week, I figured I better practice some of these techniques that are new to me. Embossing Spellbinders ™ Premium Craft Foil & stenciling to name a few! The Gina K. of Gina K. Designs happens to be featuring the Spellbinders ™ Impressabilities on her site HERE showcasing their use in several videos! Be sure to check these out!

I stenciled the butterfly, flowers & tag embellishments using a sponge dauber. Such an easy technique yet produces such stunning results!

In this bird's eye pic you can really see how wonderfully the foil looks when sanded revealing the silver "under coating" & how the decorative embossing really stands out on the butterfly when stenciled. I would love to know if you have ever tried either of these techniques? Would you be interested in learning how? Thanks for looking! Be Sweet!

I hope you can join along with this week's creativity challenge. After you have made your project, please head on over to The Play Date Cafe & link your post. If you post your creations in an on-line gallery, please label it PDCC26. Be sure to see what all The Play Date Cafe DT girls have created, (on my side bar) & our Guest Designer, Jen Tapler to share with you for inspiration! I hope you are able to join along with this week's challenge.
