There are all types of embossing powders out there. There are some that are smooth and shiny, some that have a matte finish and lots of lovely color. There are some that are bumpy, and then there are Tim Holtz’s distress embossing powders, which are rough and designed to partially adhere.
That makes them perfect for beachy themed stamps, don’t you think?
In addition to the distress embossing powder, three layers of distress ink were laid down on the card with a piece of acetate to create a splotchy water color effect.
