This is a card I made to welcome a new baby. The stamps are from Reverse Confetti and the idea to recess the baby onesies is from Nina-Marie Trapani.

Creative Chemistry 103 had us combining Opaque Texture Paste with Distress Crayons again but this time we used a stencil. I love the rich look and feel this combination of materials and mediums.

And another to share from Creative Chemistry 102 that I did not publish earlier! The butterflies were die cut out of grungeboard, Distress Inked, and then, with a little glossy accents adhesive, covered with this wonderful Distress Clear Rock Candy Glitter.

One more to share from Creative Chemistry 102. Distress Embossing Ink, silver embossing powder, ultra thick embossing powder and some Distress paint. The hearts were die cut out of grungeboard and it amazes me that I am able to get this wonderful metallic effect on paper.

I have discovered that one of my best tools is my craft sheet. For today’s technique we laid down some Metallic Mixative and several colors of Alcohol Inks on the craft sheet along with some alcohol blending solution and drug our Alcohol Ink Cardstock through the inks until we liked the effect.
