Dreamweaver blog hop

Yes! It's that time of year again! The time when we inspire crafters on both sides of the "pond" with a mix of both Dreamweaver and Woodware UK* products for the holidays! Six days, SIX, of beautiful, elegant, merry, cute, artsy, and craftsy projects to have you heading out to your local stores or internet sites to buy these goodies immediately!

Here is my design for this weeks blog hop.....using my favourite stencil design (LG743).

I've paper pieced, paste embossed, blind embossed and metal embossed this image as well as Zentangling it. It's so versatile!

I love metal embossing and the stencil is a simple design which makes it ideal for this technique.
The Mercart tools I used are the cup and ball, wheel and brush, teflon tool and the decorative wheel. Rub over the embossed surface with a black alcohol ink and wipe off the excess rubbing it into nooks and crannies!
The border punch is CP18-02.
I've draw the fine line border with a 01 Micron pen.

The gems on the metal are new Black Rainbow Elements
from Woodware.

Of course, there will be prizes as well. Three prize packages will be given to three commenters during this week's posts on the team's blogs, including five stencils and one nested die set. You can have an opportunity to win these goodies by leaving some holiday sweetness for each team member posting each day, to be one of the three winners for the week. Here are the team members that are inspiring you today:

Stunning! I've left a comment on the Woodware blog too. Definitely a technique that would work beautifully for framed pictures using the metal!
