Dream Scheme Thursday with Dreamweaver Stencils

This week is a sketch challenge.  Feel free to play along and go to Dreamweaver's blog to let us know you are playing.  Other than the pattern paper, all cardstock is from Worldwin.  Love the Petallics line!

 I used some fun paper but I have also discovered Goosebumps by Tsukineko!  I posted a few days ago on Cutting Above using this great spray as a texture.  Here I have used it as a resist on the bamboo background.  I sprayed the stencil with the Goosebumps then placed it face down on the paper.  Once dry I used some of the vivid colors of Memory Mist sprays and buffed off.  I love the soft look it gives.  I then used a mixture of gold/pearl paste on the butterfly. 
 I stamped the phrase by spraying some of them mist on wax paper and dipping the stamp in the blended colors.  I had to stamp it off a couple of times but I love the result.
I finally took a closer up shot so you can see the GREAT texture on the bamboo background!

Happy Creating!
