Woodware: Feeling Distressed? Then this is the week for you!

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!
