I've tried other brands of embossing inks, but none have come anywhere close to this one! It really doesn't give any kind of distress effect with just your average embossing powders, but it stays wet for up to 5 mins - I tried it! The fact that it doesn't dry quickly also helps give your images the most crisp appearance, so no more partial polka dots or stars! lol I will never waste time or money using another brand of embossing ink ever again.
This ink is a must when working with embossing powders. I really like this brand the best. Being new to embossing I have tried several different ones. This along with the distress powders give that aged look that most people love. It also is a slow drying so it allows time to work with your powders. Great product!
I love this embossing pad! Don't let the "Distressed" name scare you!! (Although I love the Distressed line, and all things Tim Holtz!) I used this pad to emboss large areas and it held the embossing powder beautifully and I got great results!
I definately will be buying more of these!
I just started learning to emboss my cards with powders this pad is great because it stays wet long enough for me to get my powder open and sprinkle it on.
Water mark or heat embossing, this pad is a wonderful addition to my supplies! Unlike other brands of embossing fluid that are tinted and claim to dry clear but still leave a tint to clear or translucent colors, this embossing ink goes on clear, dries clear, and leaves your heat embossed items looking great! Highly recommended!
