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

Creative chemistry 101 tags

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.

This was a bit of an experiment but I am fairly pleased with the results. I took one of the urban stamps from the Papermania Capsule Collection DVD and inked it up using distress inks, then I put some Anita’s 3d Glaze on it and let it dry. Once dry I shaped the doll in order to crack the glaze a little. The background came from the same DVD  I think (got so many bits of paper lying around its hard to say!) I put the ink on my craft mat a spritzed it with water & dragged the card through it.
