We've now had four weeks of festively distressed fun playing with the Ranger/Tim Holtz Distress Powders along with our wonderful line of Dreamweaver Stencils and products. Huge thanks to Tim Holtz and the fab people at Ranger for sharing these four collaborative weeks with us, and providing the yummy shades of Distress Powders for us to create with. We've been inspired by the process, and we hope you have, too!
If you haven't won one of the prize packages yet, you still have one more opportunity this week as the set below is up for grabs to a random commenter on one of the Dream Team blogs.
If you've been following along each week, you've seen some gorgeous creations with these stencils and powders, so you should be all fired up to get distressed! If you've missed the first three weeks, check them out once you've made the rounds today:
Then I layed soap side down against a piece of double-sided mounting adhesive that was cut just slightly smaller than the stencil. Burnish the stencil well to this adhesive to avoid any air pockets. I removed the second piece of adhesive liner and adhered this piece to layering cardstock. (This gives your adhesive film a piece of stability.)
Then using a straw, I sprinkled on the Distress Embossing Powders one at a time, shaking off the excess as I went. When I had all the colors I wanted on the image, I CAREFULLY removed the stencil and sprinkled the Antique Linen DEP over the exposed adhesive paper.
Then just using my heat gun, I melted the DEP and layered the card onto coordinating cardstock.
So easy yet the texture of the DEP really adds dimension to the finished project.
