ID: MC Feb/13 - Dreamweaver - Friends Meet card
size: 5.5"w x 4.25"h

I really wanted to use some of my newest stencils that I won recently in a Dreamweaver challenge... so this is the first card and also works for this month's Dreamweaver challenge "CAS Friendship or Love". I thought using the two fish stencil LG613 would be perfect and I really wanted to do some gold leaf, so that really warms up the image...

I'm using one of the Friendship Quote Marks set from Quietfire Design "When Friends Meet..."

I put a layer of Dreamweaver Glossy White onto my white card and allowed it to dry. Put the stencil back and carefully applied my gold leaf adhesive (Mona Lisa brand), allowed it to become tacky dry, then applied my red variegated gold leaf (available at Michael's). Rubbed the gold leaf with a piece of fine silk fabric which removed most of the excess leaf and also gave it a bit of shine. I also used an x-acto knife to scrape/remove tinny bits of leaf here and there.

PS Don't forget to clean your stencil well each time.

Stamped the quote with Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Deckled my card edges using a Purple Cow multi edge trimmer. Applied a Quickie Glue pen to the heart and sprinkled with Glitter Ritz micro fine glitter "Warm Highlights". Sponged around the edges of card with Distress Tumbled Glass.
