Creative Chemistry Day 7

I am done first thing in the morning again!  Everyone still asleep upstairs too!  Today I have basically copied T!ms tags straight off but just used stamps from his Artful Flight set instead:


For tag one I used Barn Door for the bird, Crushed Olive, Broken China, Tea Dye, Vintage Photo and Wild Honey for the background with Black Soot for the other images.  I then I ironed it too! don't think I have ever ironed at 6.50am before!  Normally I would leave the powder as is as I like the raised shiny look but as this is a class I thought I would use it as a new technique and now I love this way too!  Knowing me I will now have to make two pieces of artwork each time I use this technique - one to iron and one to leave as is!!!

For tag two I followed T!ms instructions and used Evergreen Bough, Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain - love this effect too.

For tag three I used Dried Marigold Distress Embossing Powder on a clear embossing ink, then Crushed Olive, Walnut Stain, Broken China, Wild Honey and Barn Door distress ink.  Love this tag too.

Can I also just say a big hello to Jenny Sullivan - thank you following me!

I do wish I'd known about this course ... I thought it was only for people in the States!
I LOVE the colours in tag two!
I have been popping in here and keeping my eye on what you are doing with your tags each day and am sorry I don't always have time to leave a message but I have seen all you have done so far! Love Debbie-also-from-Solihull. xXx
