I came up with for the card on the last post,
because I didn't have the right colour distress embossing powder.
I only have these 3 colours, & I decided I needed black.
I love the distress embossing powders but sometimes
I find them a bit unpredictable
because you can't control what bits stick & what bits rub off,
Here's what I used
rub the anti static pad over the card
& then stamp your image,
sprinkle the embossing powder over the image,
tip off excess,then put excess powder back into pot.
using a poky tool or the end of your scissors
lightly scratch off where you don't want the powder to remain,
this is also a fab technique for light & shade,
also if you want something to look like it has a shine.
heat the image with your heat gun,
then cut it out.
take a blending tool & blend over the image
to make the edges less prominent & also aged,
this is the end result,
I hope you find this useful in your crafting,
you can adapt this to any image or colour scheme.
that's it for now,
