Scrappy Angie's: Distress Embossing Powder

Today I have a very interesting product to showcase - Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Powder. What is so different about this embossing powder? 

+ It's distressed and has a matte finish
+ It has a unique texture - the weathered & worn look
+ It comes in 24 colors
+ It has unique "release crystals" that can be rubbed off after embossing

Here's a look of what you can create with these amazing Distress Embossing Powders.

Now, let's see how to create some customized embellies & also how to stamp with it.

1. Get your stash of distress inks, embossing ink & distress embossing powders out.

2. Get some felt embellies (that you do not like the color) :)

Here's a few very important tips
+ SHAKE the distress embossing jar before use to evenly distribute the "release crystals"
+ After inking your embellies with embossing ink, IMMEDIATELY pour the distress powder on to it.
+ Next, IMMEDIATELY heat it with your heat tool.

3. When you heat the distress embossing powder, it will not be glossy as the usual embossing powders are. It will leave a matte finish.

4. After heated up, it's time to rub the "release crystals" off to reveal the color underneath, to get a textured finish and to achieve the distressed look.

Now, onto the stamping. Just follow the same steps above but here are some samples with different inks and distress embossing powder.

Sample 1
Distress Embossing Powder {Mustard Seed}
Distress Ink from top to bottom {Mustard Seed / Picked Raspberry / Peacock Feathers}

Sample 2
Distress Embossing Powder {Scattered Straw}
Distress Ink from left to right {Embossing Ink / Picked Raspberry / Peacock Feathers}

As you can see, different colored inks give different colors. And same inks with different distress embossing powders give different effects too!! How cool is that? And do you see the inks revealing from underneath? That's the effect of rubbing the "release crystals" off :)

You can get all your supplies from now and start creating!
