Dreamweaver Thursday: Rusty and Rustic Distressing

You’ve probably seen this fascinating video from Andy Skinner for Stampendous at least a couple of times this week, but just in case you missed it, we’re featuring it once again! Since this is our Dreamweaver Thursday post, we have a warm, yet frosty, project created by team member, Pam Hornschu, that uses parts of Andy Skinner’s faux rust technique, some great products from our craft partners, and the perfect Dreamweaver Stencil to highlight this rusty and rustic design. We even have step-outs so that you can follow along…
