Tim Holtz Creative Chemistry 102 - Day 3

Playing with Distress Glitter! I am a happy girl. This class is so informative, I can not tell you how addictive it is. I have spent hours just playing for 3 days now. Only to be interrupted by physical therapy and occasionally the dog needs to go out.

Here is a tag I made using the Candy & Distress glittering technique.

I ran a #10 black tag through my Vagabond using 2 embossing folders, The December Calendar and Snowflakes. Threw a little tissue tape on one side and applied Versamark ink all over the raised areas, rubbed with Perfect Pearls to get that bronzy gold color.

 I cut up some of the TH Christmas paper and made a belly band and some tickets that I stamped with Christmas sentiments. I die cut Alterations Poinsettias from grungeboard.
Used 3 shades of distress inks to color, then glassy accents and Rock Candy Glitter. I just LOVE how it sparkles and picks up the color underneath.  Liquid Pearls finished off the centers. So pretty!!!!

Here are the other tags I did. The photo was a download from class that we learned how to use Distress Makers to photo tint. I loved the Brayer Stain technique!

Another cool effect was using Matte Glue n Seal and Distress Clear Rock Candy Crackle Paint. To get this Cracked Glass effect.


I have had this antique porcelain little doll body hanging around forever. She just fit perfectly on top of that little vial don't you think?

Okay so here is an overall pic of what Day 3 had in store for me.


Get your craft on peeps!

  2. All of your work is gorgeous. I love those poinsettias and what a perfect place for the doll :) I had a lot of fun too. I'm sad to see it end. I've learned so much. Looks like you really enjoyed the week as well. Maybe there will be a CC103 next year! Happy crafting to you -- Mary Elizabeth
