The Dream Team have been challenged for the month of November to create something CAS (clean and simple) for the holidays. The extra challenge is mixing the Distress Powders in for the collaboration with Ranger. Think that it's possible? Well...let's see...
Here's what I came up with:
I am a firm believer of, if it doesn't look right, add more to it!! That's what happened with my card this week.
Well the powders on the mittens lightened up quite a bit, so they were hard to see in the background.
So next I painted different areas on the mittens with embossing ink and added Dusty Concord Distress Powder. When heating this time it bubbled up to add more texture. Then paint the strings with embossing ink and cover with Black Soot Distress Powder. Heat (that one bubbled too!).
Wasn't quite right so I masked off the mitten cuffs and added some Barn Door Distress ink. Liked it so added Chipped Sapphire to the mittens. Not feeling the result, I placed the stencil back over the image and applied Translucent Paste. I didn't dry totally transparent leaving a milky finish to some of the open areas.
So tell me what you think in your comment below before heading over to the rest of the Dream Team posts:
