Embossing Powder. Not one of my favorite items. It's messy. There are too many steps. I use it from time to time, but it mostly sits in a bin and looks at me with sad embossing powder eyes. When I found out that our September challenge for LSS Club was to use Tim Holtz Distress EP, I got...well... distressed. I do not have any of that type of EP. Thankfully, Jacquie brought some for us to use at club, so I had a chance to see what all the fuss was about.
Now, regular embossing powder changes color when you heat it. You can ALWAYS tell when it's "done cooking." Distress EP does not change in the same way, and is MUCH harder to see when it's been melted properly. Plus, if you emboss printed paper, it makes it even harder. Since I never do things the easy way, I naturally embossed printed paper! Here is what I ended up with.
The papers are all Graphic45 from the Botanicabella line. Lovely fall colors! The weather here is gloomy with a heavy marine layer. So it feels damp and nasty. The temp. reads 67 degrees. It is not fall-like at all! Phooey!
