Welcome back to week two of our amazing collaboration between Ranger's Tim Holtz line of Distress Powders, and our beautiful Dreamweaver Stencils & Products! If you missed last week's event, start HERE.
For this week's project, I chose to use the LJ832 Cornucopia to create a Thanksgiving canvas which will sit on our Thanksgiving Table as part of the centerpiece.
- I began first by staining an 8x8 Canvas with Aged Mahogany and Vintage Photo Distress Stain and adorned the corners with Tim Holtz's Ideology Corners.
- Then using Dreamweaver's Original Paste, I paste embossed the LG832 Cornucopia stencil on a piece of cross-stitch cloth. I originally had tried to use burlap but the weave was a bit too loose for the detail of this stencil. (Tomorrow I will share a card I made this same technique with burlap!).
- Once the paste was dry, I realigned the stencil and using a sponge dauber, applied Distress Embossing Ink.
- Then came the fun part! After removing the stencil, using a tiny spoon, I sprinkled Distress Embossing Powders over the wet ink. Using my heat gun, I melted the powder to give it the mottled look.
