Festively Distressed Holidays

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:

My festively distressed project for this week is this:

Start with LL3016 Ice Skates:
Paste with White Glossy Paste.  Remove stencil and carefully sprinkle Distress Embossing Powder in Mustard Seed over the boot portion of skates.  Tap off excess.  Then sprinkle Distress Embossing Powder in Frayed Burlap over the heel and soles of the skates.  Tap off excess.  Heat with heat gun until it bubbles.

Place stencil over image, stencil with silver pigment ink over skate blades.  Carefully stencil some shading on the boot with gold pigment ink.

Tah-dah!  Clean & Simply holiday card!

Don't forget to leave me some love before hopping to the rest of the Dream Team blogs:

Please remember to continue to follow the team through the Dream It Up! blog as we bravely go where no stenciler has gone before, to like us on our Facebook page, and to learn from our fabulous weekly Thursday Tutorials on Paper Craft Planet as well.
