Last week, we were totally blown away by the awesome response we received from those of you who hopped over from Tim Holtz's blog and the Ranger blog to check us out! We've been doing the "happy dance" ever since! Hopefully, you will continue to check us out, especially over the next few weeks as we continue our play-time in Tim's sandbox. (It is rather an appropriate metaphor considering the cool texture of hisDistress Powders.)
Once again, this week we are offering another fall prize package as shown here. Just leave us all some love as you visit, for an opportunity to be the one random winner we select. Curious as to who won from last week? It could be YOU! Visit the Dream It Up! blog for the announcement of the lucky commenter.
I decided to use the Falling Leaves stencil (LL3004) and the Molten Magic technique. Instead of using Metallic F/X mica powders I used Tim Holtz Distress Powders. The colors I used were Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Shabby Shutters and Tea Dye. The effect was really pleasing to me instead of the texture having a shine to it, it was rough like sand paper and feels almost like a real leaf. To do this technique I first taped my stencil down on all four sides and then I used Dreamweaver Pearlescent Paste to paste the image. Once the image was pasted I then used a small stencil brush to pick up the Distress Powders and tapped the stencil brush with my pasting spatula. Once I had done this using all the colors I heated it with my heat gun. For my background I wanted to pull the same colors, so I taped down the Big Dot Stencil (LX7011) and with the Tim Holtz Blending Foam and the Distress Inks in the same colors as the Distress Powders I rouged in the color and was able to achieve a beautiful blend of color. This has been a fun challenge and I hope you're playing along with us. Check out all the blogs to see what new and creative ideas the Dream Team has come up with. Well gotta go pack now, next week I will be in a new location same town, different street. See Ya All Then and until then Happy Stamping and Stenciling.
