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!

Here is my festively distressed project for this final week 4:

So, what are the steps for this Maidenhair fern stencil (LJ846) design that I did on double sticky paper? If you click HERE you can read through the process on the spider mum stencil (LJ892). Today's creation is the same process except this time around I did not use distress inks to enhance the leaves. The distress powder Pine Needles was sprinkled on the edges of the leaves done in the light green color Peeled Paint and really gave enough contrast so that I didn't need to shade with any inks. The word "PEACE" came from a word stencil that has several sentiments on it (LG696). I paste-embossed it using glossy red embossing paste (DGRP) and sprinkled it with the Fired Brick distress powder so it would have the same distressed look as the rest of the creation. The background was done using the distress powder Old Paper after the stencil was removed from the sticky mounting paper.


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.
