Woodware Challenge – What a Wonderful World!

The Woodware Challenge theme this week was chosen by Janet from Japonica in Exmouth the theme is from the song title, and to me it was calling out to be a scrapbook page.

DblThese pictures were taken at our local beach, it is a wonderful place, when the sun shines and even when it doesn’t shine!

rollaFirst I used the Blue Breeze Kaledacolor pad and the Crackle Background Rollagraph.

rollaRulerI used the Stamping Guide to get the lines to match up on both sheets of white 12 x 12 card.

picassoI then used Picasso to add some clouds to the background card. I put some tape over the holes so that I didn’t have to be neat.

sandCasI used the Sandcastle stencil run it through my Big Shot and then coloured it using the Strie technique.

 Big Shot Sandwich (or any other embossing machine)

Works really well with Dreamweaver stencils, but remember your sandwich.

Dreamweaver rubber mat

then 2 plates, make sure that you use flat not curved plates, I keep a brand new pair for stencils.

Strie is a really quick way to colour san embossed image. Use a large stencil brush and load it with ink from an ink pad. Starting off the paper run the stencil brush over the embossed image. starting at the top left and running all the way from top to bottom, and then turn the card and repeat on each side. This gives a sort of linen look.

lifeIt is a very quick pair of pages.

WondI think that I like this scrap booking craft!
