Mushrooms by Louise Healy


  1. Fold a 6" x 9 1/4" piece of Shabby Shutters cardstock in half to form an A6 card.
  2. Tape your stencil to a 2 3/4" x 3 3/4" piece of white cardstock with removable tape.
  3. Use a Palette Knife and Paste Spreader to apply Dreamweaver Regular Embossing Paste (DWDEP) to the image.
  4. Before removing the stencil, use the edge of your palette knife to make some ridges in the stem areas.
  5. Remove the stencil and place in water for cleaning, let the paste dry thoroughly.
  6. Place the clean, dry stencil back over the dry paste, tape in place.
  7. Use 1/4" stencil brushes to apply inks over the image as desired ( I used Memento Inks - Lady Bug and Rhubarb Stalk in the caps, Desert Sand and Rich Cocoa on the stems and grass, and a little Bamboo Leaves on the grass), use the Picasso tool to keep colors clean.
  8. Remove the stencil and sweep some Rich Cocoa around the edges.
  9. Use a paintbrush or toothpick to add some small dots of the paste around the caps, let the dots dry.
  10. Use a large stencil brush and the Rich Cocoa to stencil some mushrooms around the background of a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of kraft cardstock, edge with a black marker.
  11. Add some May Arts netted ribbon across the bottom (I cut it in half so it wasn't so wide) then adhere this to the card front.
  12. Adhere the mushrooms to a 2 7/8" x 3 7/8" black mat.
  13. Use foam tape to add the mushrooms to the card.
