Creative Chemistry 101……..Day 3

Published March 27, 2012 by isisimaginings

Happy Tuesday blog visitors, I hope the day is treating you well.  I’ve got four more tags to show you today, the results of my “homework” for Tim Holtz’ Creative Chemistry 101 at Online Card Classes.   This class was all about alcohol inks & Archival inks.

Alcohol inks with Gold mixative & blending solution
Alcohol inks with Silver Mixative & blending solution
One of the techniques Tim demonstrated was using the Archival inks as a resist under Distress inks.  I don’t presently have any Archival inks, but I do have a selection of Brilliance inks & I wondered if they would have the same result & indeed they do, as you can see in the two pics below.

One of the nice things about these classes is that I’m getting a chance to play.  Instead of choosing certain colours, I’m just grabbing what comes to hand, especially with the alcohol inks, which I rarely use.  The results are certainly interesting & I will use them more often now.
The tag below was an experiment.  Tim had said that the resist technique wouldn’t work very well on a manilla tag, so I wanted to see what the effect would be & I must say, I like it.  The photo doesn’t show the background very well, but I think you can see the stamped images underneath the DI.  The birdman was from an alcohol inked tag that went wrong earlier, so I decided to cut it out & use it as the focal point on this tag.
Stamps used on these tags: Tim Holtz, PaperArtsy, Artistic Stamper, 7 Gypsies
Thank you for looking.  Until next time, 
Love & light
