Stained small and mini trees from Tim Holtz and Idea-ology with Bundled Sage and Forest Moss Distress Spray Stain. To be continued…
I cannot get enough of these Sketch Ranunculus from Simon Says Stamp. I embossed them with Ranger Liquid Platinum on the Tim Holtz heavy card stock tag and then I applied Distress ink (barn door, wild honey, ripe persimmon, twisted citron, crushed olive, shabby shutters, ground espresso).
The flower is colored with Copic marker (image from a Copic workshop all about flowers!) and topped off with Distress Ink (vintage photo). The tag is a new heavy duty stock by Tim Holtz. I used Distress Stain (tarnished brass, mowed lawn, crushed olive) and then stamped the Hero Arts Holiday Floral – Bold Prints … More Flower floral
For our last project in Creative Chemistry 103 we let the alcohol inks splatter! I have done this in the past by just blowing on the drops of ink or using a straw but today we used canned air on the Yupo paper – so much fun!
In Creative Chemistry 103 we let the alcohol inks flow with these little landscapes. After creating the sky, we made the land portion by applying ink directly to the Yupo paper and moving it around – for this piece I used a straw to move the mountains and hills.
Today in Creative Chemistry 103, after we created a background of alcohol ink on Yupo paper, we stamped an image with archival ink and then applied color by painting with the alcohol ink. I love applying the ink this way!
Today in Creative Chemistry 103, after we created a background of alcohol ink on Yupo paper, we embossed the Yupo paper and then wiped away some of the ink to make to reveal the emerging embossed design.
After we created a background with alcohol ink on Yupo paper in Creative Chemistry 103, we used stencils as guides to remove ink with alcohol ink blending solution. I used reds, purples and oranges and continued with the Halloween theme. 🙂
Creative Chemistry 103 is continuing the exploration of alcohol inks from 101 and 102, this time using the wonderful, synthetic Yupo paper. The alcohol ink on the Yupo paper reacts with the Archival Ink to achieve this terrific effect.
This episode of Creative Chemistry 103 had us experimenting with Distress Crayon on top of Collage Medium to achieve different effects. I took the spooky route – so much fun! Distress Crayon Distress Collage Medium-Crazing Distress Archival Ink Stamps
