Sunlight Through The Trees

The background was made by accident when I was swiping up excess inks and perfect pearls, this reminded me of a walk in the country

Day 9 Techniques

All these techniques use Perfect Pearls powders, various colours. Unfortunately the photo does not pick up the shine but they catch the light when held up

Perfect Distress Mist Technique

Distress ink re-inker and perfect pearls and water in a mini mister…who knew!?

Crackle Paint Resist Technique

This was a fun technique even if the results look goofy and unstructured!

Stacking Tiles

Some more of the Shattered Stains technique.

Stained Glass Window

Creative Chemistry Day 8. Shattered Stains is the technique, where Rock Candy distress Crackle Paint is applied to grungeboard. After it has dried, various colours of Distress stains are applied and heat set

Retirement Wishes

Had a request for a retirement card so I used a couple of the new techniques I have learned and here it is.

Not so rusty

I used the Rusted Enamel technique with lighter colours. Then after applying the stamped images, I put another coat of clear embossing powder over the entire tag, heat embossed it and this is the result.

Rusted Enamel Technique

Day 7 techniques are all about using embossing powders. The background image was covered with rusty hinge distress ink and clear embossing powder but some powder was flicked off purposely before heat setting it. Once it was heated then cooled, vintage photo and walnut stain distress inks were worked into the background with an ink blending tool. It gives a very interesting backdrop to the stamps

Stamping with Distress Markers

Creative Chemistry class continues this week. Today was about colouring and stamping with distress markers. I had better success colouring directly on the stamp and then stamping that image. I especially like the ability to get three versions out of one colouring! In Tim’s class, he uses Specialty Stamping Paper which would then allow a person to go over the stamped image with another colour of distress ink. I don’t have that, but am very happy with what I learned today!
