3) Distress Powder Resist - I inked the stamps with distress scattered straw & embossed with dried marigold distress powder. The stamp is maybe a little too fine-detailed for distress powder? - but it did work!! The quote would have worked great, except I didn't stamp it too well, so the right hand side didn't emboss much! So I 'embraced my imperfection' & after I'd added distress inks to the tag, I overstamped the quote with vintage photo - slightly 'off centre', but it's given a 3D effect to the left-hand side of the quote which I like!! I think I'll use this 'mistake' again!!!
I enjoyed playing with the embossing powders today - I've got quite a few, different makes & colours, so I'm off to try out all of them on light & dark cardstock (to see if they're translucent or opaque!) & so I've got a reference for them!!
Looking forward to paints tomorrow!!! Have I said I'm loving this class?? Well I certainly am!! And I'm learning so much - Tim is one amazing teacher!!!
