Creative Chemistry 102: Rusting with Distress Embossing Powder

This is a technique using Distress Embossing Powder.  After inking the chipboard swirl with Embossing ink, Vintage Photo Distress Embossing Powder was applied to the surface.  The surface was heated using a heat tool to  melt the powder.  After cooling, the release crystals were rubbed off until the surface felt like sandpaper.  The edges were inked with some more Vintage Photo Distress ink using the Ink Blending Tool.  I chose to emboss the wheat swirls from Heartfelt Creations on the tag and
reached into the stash to find some yellow poppy flowers.  A little Vintage Photo Distress Glitter in the center ties this monochromatic tag together.  I really like the result- one of the true benefits with the Distress palette across all different types of products. 


  1. This is gorgeous and screams vintage! Love love love it!

  2. Distress embossing power? NEW to me, I need to check it out as the result is wonderful, love it!

  3. As though I need more embossing powder, but I *need* this color! Such a pretty tag.


Thank you so much for your kind words. Isn't it fun to encourage one another, even from a distance?
