Default Distress Embossing Powder?

A friend of mine gave me some of this stuff, And I don't know if I have used it right or not.
But I really don't like the way it looks/ I threw the card away.

Has anyone else use it and like it?

Or can anyone give us hint's on how to use it better?

Smile Don't give up on Distress EP!

Hi! I'm brand new to splitcoast -- had to sign up after SO MANY customers kept talking about it. I had to put my 2 cents in about Ranger's Distress EP. It's really meant to chunky images or direct to paper. A fine line stamp will look terrible done with this ep. I like to demo this in my store using a Stamper's Anonymous car stamp by Tim Holtz. I ink it up in Vintage Photo Distress Ink, stamp it, cover with Peeled Paint (green) Distress Ep, heat, and then use an old credit card to scrape over it when cooled off. Just some of the green ep will come off, showing the brown ink underneath. Also looks very cool around the edges of cheap wood picture frames...instant antique! It's ~supposed~ to look old and flaked-off....the trick is to use a stamp that lends itself to that look in the first place. Hope this helps!

I forgot to mention that you don't HAVE to use Distress Inks for your base coat. You can use Versamark or Embossing ink, but the Distress inks give a great contrast when scraping off the Distress Powders.

If your style doesn't lean toward weathered, crumpled, muted, earthy types of colors and/or textures, you probably aren't going to like to distressed inks or EPs. My friends laugh because I love things with 'character' (they're polite way of describing things that are well worn with love, of course). A lot of my cards have a lot of textures & earthy colors, twill over grosgrain & even more over sheer ribbons. I have but almost never use BB or SS colors from SU & have an aversion to pastels. I can appreciate the other colors & stuff but don't want to use it myself. That's what I love about the world we live in - the differences we share.
