Another Dry Embossed Stencil Card



I liked making the stencil dry embossed card from the other day so much that I wanted to try it again. This time I used one of my Dreamweaver stencils.  Since these stencils are made of metal and thicker, you get a much deeper impression which I really love.

For this card I embossed the stencil twice.  Once for the background and a second time for the fussy cut umbrellas.

For the background I colored the umbrella with Salty Ocean and Iced Spruce Distress Ink.  Then I splattered some water over the top just because they are umbrellas and they should be rained on, right?



The red/pink umbrellas were colored with Pickled Raspberry and Iced Spruce and fussy cut.

I added a little strip of cardstock with a sentiment from a Sweet Stamp Shop set and then some clear sequins to finish it off.

I'm going to link this up over at Dreamweaver's too as they are still running their CAS challenge this month.

That's all for today!
