Week 7 Give it some distress!

Well here we are at week 7 and time for another tutorial. This week we are asking for the distressed look on your projects and who is the King of distress but Mr Holtz himself!


The team discussed how we were going to do this tutorial and came to the conclusion that no-one does it like the Master himself. Michelle and I were lucky enough to meet Hr Holtz last February and watch him demo the distressing techniques so I took a chance and emailed him to ask permission to link his U tube tutorials to the Tuesday Taggers blog.
Here we are with some other crafty pals
















Anyway within the day a reply came back saying we could - Brilliant! so here is the Master at work.





True inspiration dont you think? and if you need any of Mr Holtz fabby distressing products then The Craft Barn is a great place to visit! The fantastic team at The Craft Barn are sponsoring this week so have a £15 voucher for the lucky winner picked at random. A great opportunity to top up your stash and have fun with the challenge too! Dont forget to add the Tuesday Taggers link in your entry.
One extra rule for the challenge this week - please add a link within your entry to The Craft Barn too or add The Craft Barn logo to your blog sidebar with the link. If you have any trouble doing that just get in touch via the email and someone will get back to help with the technical stuff.
Heres our Fab design teams take on the distress theme!

  8. Hope this one qualifies. I don't own distressing inks, so I used a dauber round the edges.
