Creative Chemistry 101 - Day 6

Good Evening Peeps

Yes!  I am still plugging away but I now only have Days 9 and 10 to go.  Tonight though I have now discovered my new favourite "thing"!  Distress Markers.  I only bought 3 to play with as I wasn't sure how I would get on with them and they are a little expensive if you don't like them, but like them I do!!  Also, where I usually order them are only getting them in in dribs and drabs so there wasn't many to choose from.  I hope they get more in and soon as I now want more!
Here is what I have done with my limited supply - all on watercolour paper as I don't have the Speciality Stamping Paper either!  It is on my Wish List now!


I also stamped the butterflies again spraying with water before stamping like the Watercolour Stamping technique you may have seen on Tim's blog.  I didn't reink the stamp so it is second generation.  Love it!!  Hope you do.  Let me know what you think.

I think you're doing great things with the help of Mr Holtz and his amazing technicolour products.

Keep up the good work. I love the different effects you're getting. I particularly like the far right hand tag in the top picture. xxx

My favorites are the second generation stamps, I love the distressed look of them, just beautiful! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

I love them both but I am a bit partial to the watercolor looking one. I love the soft edges. I want to try these markers but as you said they are expensive. I guess i'll have to do one at a time based on my budget. Enjoy playing. Can't wait to see some more.

You're nearly done!! I love these tags, even with just 3 markers they look fantastic. Wish I could get the full set, but....!!!

Wow! You did a great job with this one!! I think you picked the right 3 colors to start with. I can't wait to play more with these.

Oooh, how beautiful! I love all those butterflies! And you certainly picked three great colours for the Distress Markers! I don't have these markers as I have another set of watercolour markers that I don't use already, lol! But I understand that the TH ones are different as they "hold" their own colours even when blended!
I am impressed with how much you are learning from this class!
