Revisiting Creative Chemistry 101 - Week Two
It has been loads of fun doing this set of classes again. Wow... Distress has added so much in such a short time. So has my abilities since first taking the classes. Week two Tim had us review Days 4, 5 and 6. And then create a project using sprays and stamps used any way.
The tags are both done layered misting, custom stamps and watercoloring with distress markers. I was able to use the Texana Designs stamps.
Above are the three tags from Day 4 using Re-inkers. The boot tag is watercolored with reinkers. The haunted house is made from sprays made from re-inkers because Distress Sprays had not been introduced in 2012.
These three tags were sprayed with mini-misters filled with water and re-inkers. I may have used a few of the sprays from the 2015 colors. I used hickory smoke for the spray through the stencils.
Custom ink pads remains one of my favorite uses of the re-inkers. I can get so many different looks by changing the amount of water I use after stamping.
These three tags are the first technique from Day 5 Stained Kraft Resist.
The remaining 5 tags from Day 5 and Day 6 are in various stages of completion. I will try to get images of those tags in the next post.
