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.

The boot and the bluebonnets are colored on watercolor paper and fussy cut using my Brother Scan'n'Cut.  The background is washed with reinkers.

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.
