Take the item you wish to emboss (I used a die cut heart) and cover it with a Distress Stain (I used Barn Door) and emboss with clear embossing powder. Don't try and achieve a really smooth finish! Rub Black Soot Distress Ink into the pits - let it stain where the embossing powder has 'missed'. Then cover the shape in more, very 'juicy' and liquid, Distress Stain and quickly emboss again. The Distress Stain will lie on top of the embossed finish so it will seem very peculiar! This is perfectly normal as the liquid is not being absorbed by the surface of your shape! I did this step twice (so three times in total) and what happens it that you get a 'liquid' effect - like there is liquid trapped under the embossing powder! It's very cool and worth a try!
To finish the card I added another Wendy stamp, this time a dotty one, in Vintage Photo Distress Ink and the sentiment stamped on kraft card with Cobalt Archival Ink. I hope you try embossing with Distress Stain, I'd love to see what effects you create.
