I did it, I graduated!

Creative Chemistry 101 day 3

No nothing as exciting or clever as getting a degree, sorry about that. I have been taking part in the Creative Chemistry classes as part of Tim Holtz’s Summer of Creative Chemistry and I am having a blast. Its great fun and I can thoroughly recommend it. I have finally graduated in the Chemistry 101 class.

Here are some of my technique tags

Summer of Creative Chemistry Week 1

I recently discovered Tim Holtz’s Summer of Creative Chemistry ( a bit late to the party I know) and I have been having fun creating tags from the Creative Chemistry 101

I was particularly pleased with the brushless watercolour one in the middle, done with Lisa Hortons stamps.

Here is the one I did for the challenge for week 1 which was:

Your challenge is create a tag, card, or other project using FOUR OR MORE COLORS OF DISTRESS INK.

I used Barn Door, Broken China, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Dusty Concord on my tag background and I love how it came out.

It’s that time again over at the Gina’s Designs blog, yes its time for another freebie and this week it is a great butterfly tag printable.

Here is the simple tag I made with it:

Butterfly tag using SplodgeAway Mask

I used one of my SplodgeAway masks with some tea dye distress ink to create the tulips in the background. The punch used for the band at the bottom is an E K Success punch (large scroll border). I used diamond sparkles on the butterfly to make it stand out a little.
