Stampin' Up! Follow Your Dreams - stepped up

Hello, here are the details of the final project this week using Follow Your Dreams.  My crafty ladies have really enjoyed using this bundle and the Shimmer Paint has been a real hit this week!

Top Tip
Take care when using this paint if you have painted nails - definitely not a good look!

I actually used the Wink of Stella on this project - you can just see it below on the Soft Sea Foam dream catcher.

Here is one that I have used the Shimmer Paint on - much sparklier!

The background for this project has been stamped in Soft Sea Foam ink using the lovely splatter from a stamp set called Touches of Texture.  How I miss Gorgeous Grunge - still!  

This project has lots of lovely dimension.  The larger dream catcher has been stamped in Gray Granite and adhered with a Dimensional.

A Soft Sea Foam die cut dream catcher has been adhered on top, again with a Dimensional.

The tiny little feathers have been stamped and die cut and then adhered with Mini Dimensionals.

Whilst designing this project I played around with various colours for the word 'dream'.  I tried black, and sparkly card stock but they were not quite right.  Eventually I used Tranquil Tide.  The word has another word underneath cut from scrap card stock to make it firmer and easier to adhere with Tombow.

I used one of the Faceted Clear Gems in the centre of the dream catcher - I've not used these for ages and I had forgotten how lovely they are!

Unusually for me, I stamped a sentiment on the inside of the card.

Thanks to everyone who joined me this week for some crafty fun.  I will share details of the projects for next week shortly but we will be using an old favourite of mine - Sheltering Tree.

I am hopping again this weekend; my first colour challenge - eekk!

Hope you have a crafty weekend.
