Festively Distressed with Dreamweaver Stencils & Ranger

Pin It

The Dream Team are so excited to have the opportunity to play along with some unique Ranger Products in the Tim Holtz line...specifically, the Distressed Embossing Powders! Our own Louise Healy demonstrated how fabulous these are with the Dreamweaver Sistretencils when she created this card for a fun class at CHA Summer 2012:

Apparently, Tim Holtz agreed with all of us on this unique use of his product, so he very generously had Ranger (thanks, Patti!) send the team some samples to play and blog with. So...here we go!

Here's my post for today:

Another fall card using the same techniques as was shown last week with double stick tape and Distress Powders by Tim Holtz at Ranger Ink.
Let me go over those steps again really quick.

1. Apply double stick tape to paper.
2. Soap back of stencil.
3. Peel backing off of the tape.
4. Place stencil, soap side down. to double stick taper.
5. Press stencil in place.
6. Sprinkle on desired colors of Distress Powder.

 7. Peel paper off of the stencil.
8. Apply background colors of Distress Powders.
9. Heat the entire image.

Layer your image!!

You can go back to my post from last week to see the steps!
