Summer of Creative Chemistry: Week 1

Made some tags as card fronts using Distress Inks and techniques.
I like them both and can't decide which ones I like better! Rainbows or Robots!


The challenge of Week 1 was to use 4 or more colors of Distress Ink on a project. The techniques of class on Day 2 are some of my favorites.
Blended Spritz and Flick: I used Candied Apple, Carved Pumpkin, Fossilized Amber, Lucky Clover, Mermaid Lagoon, and Wilted Violet. On two tags, I flicked regular water and on the other two, I flicked water mixed with Perfect Pearls. The two tags above show the difference between edging one with Vintage Photo and leaving it alone. Really like the edging better.

I stamped some small sentiments on these and will make a set of cards with them.


Wrinkle Free Distress:  (My all-time favorite technique ever learned! And it's why I continue to buy Distress Inks!) I used Chipped Sapphire, Broken China, Pumice Stone, and Hickory Smoke to create the background. I just love my robot blueprint stamps but never use them enough. The background ended up with hints of green so I colored my robots with Distress Markers in Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers. Edging done with Walnut Stain.

I'm very pleased with my work so far...I could do this stuff forever!

  2. Great tags - you actually made a robot look cool!!
    On a side note, we almost moved to Potsdam several years ago for my husbands job until he got re-routed. I was SO looking forward to it - seemed like such a lovely town.
