Linda's CoC challenge which this week is distress embossing powder. I have to admit I have never got on with these, but I think thats 'cos I was trying to use them as ordinary embossing powders, I didn't realise that they came into their own when you inked over the top of them.
No details allowed about the tecnique, but I've used a big and juicy ink pad in Soothing Sunset - lots of lovely colours on this one from yellows through to purple.
It was all pretty pretty until I beeswaxed my bird definition, then I thought it needed tattying up, so I punched the sides with a Stampin Up punch and tied my tag on with a piece of string - extreme uh :o)
I must have looked a real fool then cos I was wandering round the garden with a tag and a camera trying to find a patch of light to take my photo in.
I really enjoyed this weeks challenge and I will definitely use my embossing powders more now that I know how nice they can lool - they're really touchy feely too.
Thanks very much for looking x
