Creative Chemistry 101…..Day 7

Published March 31, 2012 by isisimaginings

A very good Saturday to one & all.  Very grey & chilly here, quite a change from the last few days.  Still, it’s definitely Spring.

Today, I’d like to show you two of the tags I made for day 7 of Tim’s online class at www.onlinecraftclasses.com  The live classes are now over, but you can still sign up, as there is lifetime access to them.  Before I continue, I should mention that I don’t have anything to show you for days 4 & 6.  These lessons were on reinkers & Distress markers, neither of which I have at the moment.

Day 7 was all about embossing & like the other days, it was very interesting.  Possibly, the most important thing I learnt was that Versamark ink is NOT suitable to use with Distress embossing powders.  I’ve always used Versamark & gave up using Distress EPs, because I wasn’t getting the end result.  Now I know why.  I was so pleased with the embossing on this birdcage tag & you can expect to see Distress EPs on lots of projects from now on.

Tim also showed us embossing over Distress ink.  This was another technique I hadn’t had much success with, I think because I wasn’t putting enough ink on my stamp.  This time it worked.  Possibly, this stamp is a little too detailed, but in RL the embossing looks pretty good.

That’s it for today, I have to assist at an eight-year-old’s birthday party this afternoon.  She chose to make pizzas at a local pizzeria, so it should be interesting. Smile  I will be doing a second post tonight, as I want to enter a few challenges that are ending tomorrow.

Love & light.
