Summer Of Creative Chemistry - Week 1

Did you hear the exciting news? Tim is introducing a brand new technique series - Creative Chemistry 103. CC103 will begin in August but in the mean time Tim will guide students through
CC101 & CC102 - with brand new challenges & giveaways.
Check out all the exciting details here and join in the fun!

For week one students were challenged to use four or more Distress Inks to create a tag, card or something else using a technique used in class.

I decided to make a tag using 2 of the 3 techniques and 6 Distress Ink colours.

The Distress Inks I used for the Spritz & Flick are Twisted, Abandoned Coral, Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass. Once I had flicked water over my tag and let it dry then I applied the brush-less watercolor technique. I applied Picket Fence Distress Ink to my Rings background stamp from the Halftone & Rings stamp set from Stampers Anonymous, spritz my stamp with my mister then stamped it on my tag.

I love how this technique turned out over my inked background.
I applied Hickory Smoke Distress Ink with my round blending tool to the edges to finish it off.
Finally adhering a die cut of Umbrella Man and a sentiment stamp from the Stuff To Say set from Stampers Anonymous to complete my week 1 homework.
