Copper DREAMweaver Inspiration

Dream It Up! Thursday is here and the inspiration for my project today came full circle. The Dreamweaver Team, and myself are sharing what inspires them when they create. We would love for you to join along and link your projects (and inspiration) to the inlinkz tool on the Dream It Up! blog

I get inspired by the product almost always and today project was inspired by Dreamweaver Stencils Metallic Copper Embossing Paste. In all comical sense I thought I'd better try and make a little more effort for my inspiration so I went to Pinterest and found this image in a few places.

And so we end the inspiration circle with my project today.

See Supplies Details at the bottom of this post for links to Dreamweaver Products.
Here's how I made it.
I started on some kraft paper and embossed the Pop Rectangles with Matte Black Embossing Paste and set it aside to dry. I embossed the sentiment with Small Thanks and Metallic Copper Embossing Paste.

As soon as the Black Matte Embossing Paste was dry I went over it with the Metallic Copper Paste using the dried paste as my stencil edge. For a completed look and to cover any metallic paste I went back over the Black Matte with a second layer.

That's it and it was pretty simple to put together. As I mentioned before, my inspiration went full circle. As I was adding the product image to this post I couldn't help but notice that the label also has resemblance to my finished card. I guess we'll never really know where the inspiration came from, right?

Now it's time to follow the list of links below for some more inspiration. Have fun!
