Creative Chemistry Day 8

Up a bit later today although I managed to watch half the video before I took DS2 early to school for his Judo class, went to the hairdressers and then met my friend for a coffee and a bit of retail therapy - so my tags were nice and crackled when I got back this lunchtime, here are my tags for today:

Tag 1: Here I used canvas! (not used this before but I treated myself to a pack last week when I went to the NEC show – have always put it off as its £10 for 5 sheets but there wasn’t much else I wanted so I thought it was time I moved on and got some!).  The stamp is an old one of T!ms and I used a pearl acrylic dabber.  Then I inked it with Wild Honey, Worn Lipstick, Broken China, Vintage Photo and Peeled Paint stains.  Fabulous stuff though so I am glad I caved in and got some.

Tags 2:  Did two of these – both the same but I used Fired Brick crackle on one and Antique Linen on the other.  Stains used were Broken China, Wild Honey, Peeled Paint and Vintage Photo directly onto manila tags.  Edges and stamps were done with Vintage Photo with the main image stamped with Coffee Archival ink.

Tag 3: The birdies are cut from mountboard with a sizzix die, coated with Rock Candy crackle - although I think I have put it on a bit too thin so will have to replay around with these again another day.  Stains used were Mustard Seed, Broken China, Barn Door, Vintage Photo and Spiced Marmalade, tag is simply inked round with Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain.

A big hi to Creatique Candy - thanks for following me :)

Hi, what great tags, thanks for sharing all of the colours you used. Ironing for me too this afternoon, hubby has run out of shirts, I thought I ironed last week but then realised I probably didn't as I was too busy playing!

Great colors on your canvas piece, that resist turned out great for such a detailed stamp. Of course, the others are nice too!

Do love the effect of stamping on canvas - or printing, created a bunch of images in PSE and printed them out then stamped/sewed/inked and it was very effective.
