Using Distress Inks

This was using Distress Stains and; the new Picket Fence (white), I had so much fun doing these ones, what a difference knowing what the products are for.  I only have 4 different colors till my order arrives that is.

Now I'm off to Day 6, I get to learn all about Distress Markers while still waiting for mine to arrive.  On the positive side this means now homework for me today.........dang

Watercolor with Distress Inks

Homework for day 4, water coloring with Distress inks & brushes.  This is my fav of the week so far.  I've made few tags in my life of stamping, so I'm cutting my own, just not a tag fan but I just may change who knows, they are fun.

Archival Resist & Alcohol Agates

Day 3 homework was to practice with alcohol ink agates & resist stamping with Archival ink, on the right.

  I only have black Archival, used my Ancient Page as a resist that I've had for years, worked like a charm.

Not only am I learning so much but I'm dragging out my old supplies & actually using them.  I've no Tim stamps so I'm using little used stamps that I've had for years, another plus in this course, really making me think.

Chemistry 101 with Tim Holtz

 I'm taking Chemistry 101 online classes with Tim Holtz, it started this week with one more week to go, I'm having way too much fun discovering how all these products work, especially distress inks & products.  I've never been a Tim "fan", bought the inks because I liked the colors, I don't own any of his stamps, saw 1 or 2 utube videos but I now know why the man is so popular.  He is so very creative at what he does & one fantastic teacher with I'm assuming a ton or 2 of patience.

This was homework for day 2, flicking(droplets of water), watercolor stamping, and wrinkle free distress.

Peggy's Cove PSX

I made up this card rather quickly to send to a male person needing some cheering up, I kind of like it too.

Garden Friends

I couldn't resist this cute little digi, it came from D2D, that's all the info I have for now.  I sure did have fun coloring this one.
