Compendium of Curiosities Challenge Week 5

Distress Embossing - Boy did I struggle with this week's challenge. Biggest obstacle is that I don't own any distress embossing powder...oh horrors. I know, I know, I should be taken to the woodshed and properly disciplined. I plan to purchase some online as soon as time allows, so please forgive me!! I ended up finding a "recipe" online for distress embossing powder, and although I'm not thrilled with the final results, it's all I have to submit...sorry.

This is a tag that was started a while ago and this little owl (which is distress embossed) was the final touch.


  1. Chrissie, your tag is great, and I love the spooky Halloween look you created!

    I'm sorry the homemade Distress Powder didn't turn out as you'd hoped. I think the real stuff has a very unique composition, and it's probably just about impossible to really get the "time worn" look using regular shiny embossing powder. Nonetheless, you make a wonderful tag, and I applaud you for making it work with what you had on hand!


  2. Chrissie, love the tag. Try and get the real thing as it makes for an interesting result and great fun experimenting. Annette x
