Woodware and Dreamweaver Christmas in August Bloghop

Hi All
Today it is my turn to join in with the Annual Dreamweaver and Woodware Christmas in August Extravaganza week.

Monday through Saturday we will be knocking your Christmas stockings off with fun and inspirational ideas for the upcoming holidays. All that you need to do is hop back and forth across the "pond" on each day, oohing and aaahhhing as you go, and leaving us plenty of holiday love. In return, you'll be entered to randomly win one prize package for a UK commenter, and a second prize package for a US commenter, featuring products distributed in the UK by Woodware...including Dreamweaver and Stampendous! 

Prize includes four stencils, one die, and two stamps, selection may vary.

Here is what I created.
I tried using the Dreamweaver pastes for my central panel, but I obviously need some private tuition from the lovely Lynell as it kept bleeding underneath the stencil so I went back to the good old Cuttlebug option.
I stamped and embossed JGS178 Poinsettia Flourish onto white card stock and then ran the card through the Cuttlebug using the Dreamweaver Merry Christmas stencil.
I have also been playing with the new Mix'd Media inks which is what I have used to add colour to the trimmed panel using Stencil brushes.
The sparkle was added by covering the entire panel with Crystal Embossing powder. I also added some hand drawn lines using a Micron pen.
The gingham paper has been stamped, embossed and coloured using the Mix'd Media Inx.
The main background panel has been stamped and embossed in white and then sponged with Patina inx. I wiped off the excess with a damp paper towel and then painted the images using the same Inx
Now is the time for you to leave a comment and move on to the next designer for today:
