Embossing is among the most-used crafty techniques around my house. Pressed embossing and heated embossing, anything at all to fully alter and texture paper is OK with us.
Compendium challenge page 43, Distress powder, there was a little bit of happy clapping at my house. Perhaps one or two gleeful shouts of FINALLY!
Now, we hadn't actually previously played with the Holtz version of embossing powders, but who cares? EMBOSSING!
And, as expected, I fall into Linda's category of "really love." Really. Love.
We had some troubles, of course, like being too impatient (surprise, surprise), but in the end I have the project you see here and a couple of other little things that I couldn't resist throwing together.
After all ... EMBOSSING!
This piece used white card stock cut into a tag with multi-color Lion yard tied through the tag hole. There's a metal heart with some added goo to make it less shiny, that I found on a re-gift olive oil bottle, held by an S-clip and a brad that came from where we couldn't remember.
The distress inking is combination of edging in Vintage Photo, blots provided by Fired Brick and main color provided by tea dye.
The stamp is a combination of a scroll frame piece that came in a discount pack I picked up somewhere and the sentiment from Close To My Heart.
The embossing powder used here is Aged Mahogany.
Now we gotta run because there's less than an hour before bedtime, but several hours of embossing ideas ... don't forget to join Linda's Compendium Challenge!
