Damask Flowers


Get ready to be inked, pasted, encrusted, stenciled and stamped! All of this week the Dreamweaver Stencils' Dream Team and the Stampendous Design Teams will be providing some "Dream-pendous" inspiration for you, with multiple opportunities to win some fabulous prizes from both companies. Each day this week, you will be directed from both the Stampendous Impressions' blog or the Dream It Up! blog to the players du jour for your oohing and aaahing pleasure. Everyone will be playing on Saturday, the 14th with our final hop for the week. This is your opportunity to see how to mix and mingle your creativity...if you are a stenciler, you will be fascinated at combining stamps with your first love. If you are a stamper, you will be wowed at how stencils can add to your impressions.


My project today combines the gorgeous Damask stencil (it measures 4" x 5 1/2", so it makes a great background!!) with the cling rubber Asperula stamp.  I embossed my background with the stencil in my Vagabond (plate order from the bottom up: solo platform, stencil, card stock, tan rubber mat and a few card stock shims, two clear plates); before removing my card stock from the stencil I sponged blue ink on it, to highlight the pattern.

I know the pic is a bit off....my camera died this week, and it'll be a week or so before I can get a replacement.  I'm using my phone for the time being!

Be sure to leave comments as you tour the blogs (with your email addy!) for a chance to win one of these sets:
