I hope you’re all having a great summer! I have been taking care of family “stuff” and haven’t posted in quite some time! I wanted to post my Distress Samples from Tim Holtz’s Creative Chemistry Class. These are the first four – They’re a partial from Day One, although today is Day 4 already! (Behind as usual! :-O Yikes!).
This is Distress DIY Ombre using a DIY Distress Ink Pad. Close-ups of the tags and cards are below the composite photos.
Next up is Distress Highlight Stamping Technique
This Distress Off-Set Stamping Technique uses an old Acey Deucy Stamp from the 90’s! I was obsessed with these! Tim used a detailed rose stamp but I have almost no flower stamps in my collection! Very Cool Technique!
I love, love, love this stamp and these colors! The technique is Distress Micro-Glaze Resist.
This DIY Ink Pad used 3 different Distress Ink colors: Frayed Burlap, Gathered Twigs, Walnut Stain. I’m definitely going to be making more of these ink pads!
This is the first Tag. It’s a little difficult to see the 3 colors but, in person, they’re noticeable.
The pieces on this card were saved from my “leftovers” pile. Always fun to use up your stash!
I wasn’t quite sure I’d like this technique but it was really cool. The colors used were: Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky, Broken China, Bundled Sage, Peeled Paint and Mowed Lawn.
The lace strip on the top of this card is from Tim Holtz’s Lace Thinlit Dies. I cut out a piece of patterned paper from my “left-overs.” The beautiful little pearl is a new TH Fastener. The ribbon is Crinkle Ribbon Dyed in the same colors used for the flower.
I used lots of colors to create this look – Stormy Sky, Evergreen Bough, Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers, Weathered Wood, Vintage Photo, Victorian Velvet, Tattered Rose, Hickory Smoke and Antique Linen.
This is the image before it was restamped.
I love the Texture Fade on this one. Doesn’t it remind you of a wave?
This used lots of Distress Marker Colors and Micro-Glaze. I
This is my favorite card, colors and technique! The little ribbon is another “leftover.” More details tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by!
