Creative Chemistry 101 - Day 5

Hello Peeps

I hope you are having a great weekend.  I don't know what has happened to the weather but it has been a kinda grey dull day today so I have been playing in my craft room today playing catchup with the Creative Chemistry 101 course.  I love the fact that you can go at your own pace with this course and that the videos and instructions will be on there for life!  So for example, the first technique on Day 5 I cannot do as I don't have any Kraft Resist paper so I can go back to this workshop when I do have some.

Anyway on to today's lesson which was all about Distress Stains.  I do not have much of a palette of these stains yet, but even with a limited palette I have really enjoyed today's lesson.  As I said I do not have the Kraft Resist so instead of just having two tags to show you, Tim mentions in the video that you can do Distress Watercolour with stains so I just had to give it a go.  I love it and can see me do more of that in the near future.  So here is today's tags....

Hope you like. It is not too late to join in if you fancy trying it! Click HERE to join in.

Kate said...

Oh Sam, these tags are stunners! Such beautiful color blending! Fab-u-Lous!

These are lovely - I like all your other ones too. For the kraft resist you could stamp an image on kraft card and emboss it with clear embossing powder if you still want to play along without the proper cardstock. Might not be quite the same but still good fun!
