Fall Ranunculus


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).

Flower floral


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 over the top with Ranger’s Carnation Red Archival Ink. On top of that I added some additional Distress Ink (carved pumpkin, mowed lawn, vintage photo).

Creative Chemistry 103: Alcohol Ink Faded Layers on Yupo

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. 🙂
