Creative Chemistry 102: Ink Monoprint

Today’s Creative Chemistry 102, had us apply a selection of colors of Distress Ink to a stencil. After misting the ink on the stencil with water, we put the stencil on the tag and pressed down to transfer the ink to the tag. We removed the stencil and then dried the ink with some heat.

It looks like I just picked this poor old tag up out of a puddle of water.  I love the effect!

Creative Chemistry 102: Stencil Sketching

Similar to yesterday in Creative Chemistry 102, we combined stencils with stamping but with an addition. After inking up the background of the tag and applying the stencil, instead of stamping a pattern through the stencil, we used Distress Markers to sketch through the stencil to give certain parts more emphasis. On top of that, we stamped an additional image.

I really love the blue/green and redDistress Ink combination.
