Hi there! I hope you enjoyed your weekend! It's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday ChallengeDT member Dan would like to put some magic into our challenge this week ~ will you accept? Whether you have a magician's trick, want to shw us a cord trick, have a magical product you can't work without, or perhaps are inspired by a story or movie that has magical elements ~ we can't wait to see! The magic of this challenge is that you can be inspired any way you like! 
I created some magic using Distress embossing powder:
I think there is something magical about Vintage Photo Distress embossing powder.
I'm always in awe with the rusty aged metal appearance that may be easily achieved in just a few steps by layering Rusty Hinge Distress Paint, Distress embossing ink and Vintage Photo Distress embossing powder. Quite magical don't you think?
Thanks so much for stopping by! Please be sure to visit the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog to see what the rest of the DT has created! 
Be Sweet ;)
