There are more prizes to be had this week while we are distressing projects.
Details for this fabulous prize package for TWO winners can be found on the Stampendous blog today.
The team is being joined by two fabulous industry artists this week, Tracy Weinzapfel and Terry Sproul, who have rusted out some projects and you will want to make sure you stop by their blogs to say hi and see what amazing projects they have done. Find a link to their project on the Stampendous blog this week.
Now it's my turn to show off some distressing magic. I apologize right this minute for not have step by step photos. I had my camera all set up to take snaps along the way, but this rust technique by Andy Skinner is the BOMB!
For those that want to see a work in progress...
After this step I just went to town and had a blast following all the stamping and painting steps in the rusty technique video. Here is the finished stack of Artist Trading blocks, which are the fun cherished memories box dies by Sizzix (link below).
Andy some more pics to show off the boxes in different arrangements. Haha. I used the heart from the box die and stamped the word "you" onto chipboard painted the same way as the boxes. I added a doorknob even, punching out chipboard with a crop-a-dile and gluing them together before paint distressing.
Every product that is part of the prize package was used on my project, with the exception of Andy Skinner's Cling Nature Stamps Set. That set I used on another ATB during the blog hop back in February.
Click the picture if you'd like to see that project as well. No guarantees that I made step out photos though.
