Distressed Embossing With Jaine

I don't think I'll ever get tired of Distress Ink backgrounds. They're so unpredictable and that's what I love about them, plus I can make several in one go. The card below came about as I was playing with the inks on my craft sheet and found a colour combination I really liked.

It reminded me of the Space Dust powder in the Seth Apter Cosmic Trio and its subtle shades of blues and purples together with the different sized pieces of powder.

As I have a huge thistle growing right outside my studio window, I took this as inspiration to stamp these funky thistles from Lavinia Stamps as they fitted the theme and look I was aiming for. I find it very difficult to capture in a photo the variations of colour in this powder and the larger blue pieces which randomly scatter themselves over the design help create this funky, arty finish.

Of course you don't have to limit yourself to using an Embossing Pad to make your powder stick, I spritzed lightly with a mini mister and added my powder to it. You MUST heat from underneath otherwise the water will dry and the powder will simply blow away but the result is so pretty.

I added a few dots with a brush and Embossing fluid before adding the gold, then went around the edge with Weathered Gold too adding a border.

I pulled the quote from an old book page and thought it would make a lovely finishing touch.

Whatever you do, I know you'll do it well!

  1. This lavinia thistle stamp looks great and the love the added quote Jaine, and the Seth Apter EP works beautifully and love the extra scattered in the foreground which stitcks to the damp surface. I haven't tried adding EP in this way but must give it a try. x
