Do you ever forget about crafting techniques? You don’t mean to forget about them, but you sort of fall into a run and simply forget about things…and then you see a post and your like…”Wow, how could I have forgotten!!!”
That’s sort of how I have been feeling about embossing. Well, embossing and distress inks really. I sort of forgot all the things you could do with Distress Oxides and embossing powders. So to make up for my oversight, today I am playing around with this technique.

I started this card with some stencil work, using the new Uniquely Ocean Waves stencil, I blended some Faded Jeans, Salty Ocean, and Broken China Distress Oxides into a piece of cardstock.
I trimmed up the cardstock a little and then added some strips of trimmed navy sparkle paper from the Lawn Fawn Sparkle Cardstock in Autumn.
I then stamped the sentiment from the Couture Creations Brave Wings stamp set using some VersaFine ink and embossed it with some Ranger White Embossing Powder. I then blended a little bit of Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide over the embossed image. I matted the image with more Lawn Fawn Sparkle Cardstock.
Finally, I added an embossed stamped butterfly. To do this, I pulled out the butterfly stamp from the Kaisercraft Indigo Skies stamp set and stamped it out in Chipped Sapphire. I then quickly poured Ranger Clear Embossing Powder over the butterfly and heat set it.
