Dreamweavers Hop- Faux Postage Card...

I have been wanting to try creating faux postage stamps for awhile now, so when I saw the Dreamweavers Large Tile stencil I was excited to give it a try!


I kept the stencil in place while inking the paper with Shabby Shutters and Antique Linen. I spritzed it with a bit of water. Next,  I made a wash of Broken China with water and splattered it over the stencil. Dry with a heat gun. I stamped a collage of stamp images over the entire stencil. The last step was to stamp the main image in black ink and color with pencils.


I have a tutorial on how to create the faux metal embossed button over at Paper Craft Planet...HERE


Using Translucent Embossing Paste and the large flourish stencil, I added a bit of detail to the corners of the cardbase. 

Now you know what to do. Its time to HOP.

What an awesome way to use the tile stencil, Wendy! Did you do the holes with a piercing tool, or your sewing machine? Thanks for another great post!
