Creative Chemistry 101 ~ Day 3

Finally I get to finish my Day 3 tags! It takes Tim 6 minutes to demonstrate each tag, but takes me considerably longer! Each of these took FOUR attempts get them vaguely looking like they should be, but even so I am not really happy with them :(

Sorry about the photos, the light was starting to fade as I took them.

The middle one hasn't stamped too well, but as they are just for me to keep for my technique library, I'm not too fussed.

Whilst I am doing this course, I am also reminded that me and alcohol inks, do NOT go together.

Thank you for looking.

Creative Chemistry 101 ~ Day 2

Hello, here is the first set of technique tags that I've made on Day 2 of Tim's Creative Chemistry 101 course. The instructions for how to make each tag are on the back and they will build up into a handy reference library for me, so I won't be doing any more with these tags.

Really loving the course. Even though I've only done 2 days out of the 4 which have been uploaded so far, I have already learnt sooooo many things. Am so glad that I can now start using these product in the way they are supposed to be used!
Thank you for looking.

wicked witch of the west

Hello and a Happy Monday to you! 

Today at Cupcake Craft Challenges the theme is circle cards.

For my project today, I was driven by the technique and then I tried to make it fit the circle.

Papers: Graphic 45 ~ The Magic of Oz

I backed the papers with a sheet of black metal which I had run through the Sizzix Tim Holtz ~ Bubble Wrapping embossing folder. I then sanded the raised bits back to highlight the circles.
Love this Bo Bunny trinket. The purple paper has been embossed with UTEE.

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Hello! Today I am coming at you from Cupcake Craft Challenges, where we have a fabulous red and yellow colour challenge. WOW! What a stunning combo!

As you can see I have made a box, using my favourite Sizzix Tim Holtz ~ Matchbox die

I made a little mini album to go on top.

I shaped the top cover with a Sizzix Tim Holtz ~ Plaque on the Edge die. It is all held together with a Tim Holtz ~ Small Ring Binder.

Here it is before I added the ribbons to the binder.
