Friday Focus on Emerald Creek Embossing Powders & Gem Stones

Hello everyone and Happy Friday!  Linda here to tell you about a sensational new product line we are now carrying at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.  I'm excited that I had a chance to play around with these wonderful new embossing powders.  Emerald Creek Alure Embossing Powders are a deep rich enamel with a blend of clear thick embossig powder combined with metallic powders and other ingredients.  The result is a very unique look and feel to enhance your craft projects. 
Double click any image to zoom in for details.
I experiemented on the jumbo manila tags we sell at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.  They are not the heavy coated paper that the Tim Holtz tags are made of, but they have the advantage of being very economical and in most instances are a great substrate for craft projects.  
This is Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide ink over the manila tag using the Tim Holtz Flourish stencil.  The embossing powder is Burnt Copper Leaves.  Below, I have taken an ordinary bronze filigree metal and embossed it with the Burnt Copper Leaves.  
Isn't this gorgeous?

Here I grabbed another manila tag and smooshed three Distress Oxide Pads onto my craft sheet - Worm Lipstick, Peeled Paint and Vintage Photo.  
It was embossed with the Damask stencil and Hammered Metal embossing powder.  
Love the combo of rich thick silver with dots of black all melted together.  
What do you think?  Beautiful, huh?

Next up is Oil Rubbed Bronze.  The Tim Holtz Clockwork stencil was the perfect design for showing off this amazing embossing powder.  It is layered over a tag stained with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink.  It truly does look like oil rubbed metal.  
Here it is on the bronze filigree.  So amazing (sorry for my Broken China Oxide Ink stained nail - that suff is hard to remove - LOL)

Next up is Weathered Wood over a Fired Brick stained tag.  What a beautiful combination!
And one more time on the bronze filigree. I especially like the way it looks on the filigree.

And last we have Fractured Ice Embossing Powder over a tag stained with Broken China Distress Oxide ink.  
Isn't this gorgeous.  The cool thing about the Fractured Ice is that it is translucent so the base color shows through.  This enables the embossing powder to take on so many different color characteristics.  
Love the way it looks using the Splash stencil and Broken China Distress Oxide ink!  One thing, though, is that I tried using it over metal and it did not alter the bronze.  There is too much clear EP in this mixture to effectively alter metal.  

These are just a few samples of the new Emerald Creek Embossing Powders we have in stock over at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.  Our prices are normally 20% off list and for our Friday Focus special, all our Emerald Creek products will be another 15% of through April 13th.
