The Crafty Card Makers have challenged us once again...all of this week the Woodware team have been demonstrating how distressing can be a good thing! My post today features this cute decorative kitchen trivet. The base is a page from a chipboard book which I've ink-distressed with brown and black ink around the edges. A off-white square of cardstock has the Dreamweaver Plaid/Stripes stencil pattern ink-stenciled in red and a fine black line, with the corners rounded.The focal point is a panel of Copper metal, machine-embossed with the Dreamweaver Rooster, and ink-distressed with Black StazOn ink smooshed (technical term) with a sponge dauber into the crevices and around the edges. A soft towel and a bit of cleaner removed the excess. This was adhered along with some ivory lace, and a stamped twill ribbon (Dreamweaver's Fine Feathered Friends), and also distressed with ink. Holes were punched at the top, and hemp cord tied along with a ribbon bow and button to be hung in a rustic-themed kitchen.
If you haven't been checking out the rest of the team's posts this week, I highly recommend that you do so now! Check out the Woodware blog each day, and please leave comments for us!
