Creative Chemistry Day 9

Flying visit from me today as Thursdays are a busy day for me - I have managed to get through the three techniques before school run this morning but am not particularly happy with the second one - I think these tags need a bit more time spent on them rather than just rushing through with the techniques - however this is a technique class and I do like to keep all things I make in a class so I can look back and see what I like and what I don't and learn from it!

For tag 1, I only have the Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearl mist and I didn't want to use the only ink and water mix I made up the other day in the only Mini Mister bottle I have so I have used Jazz Blue and Cranberry Zing glimmer mists instead - lovely results all the same.
For tag 2 I inked the tag in Tea Dye and dried it, then I discovered that I had the same stamp as T!m squirreled away although mine is an acrylic stamp so is slightly smaller.  I stamped this in Walnut Stain, Aged Mahogany and Fired Brick and then covered it with Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls.  I think I sprayed too much water on it as it is more washed out than T!ms image but this can be perfected on my next attempt!
For tag 3 I put Fired Brick, Vintage Photo, Broken China and Crushed Olive inks on my mat and then added Heirloom Gold perfect pearls, Jays Blue Velvet Lustre from Blonde Moments and Festive Candy lustre again from Blonde Moments, then sprayed and swooshed - love this effect.  I then inked the tag with Broken China, Wild Honey, Broken China, Fired Brick and Vintage Photo.

Am loving all these effects!  If anyone can think where I could have possibly safely stored my tags from day 7 please let me know - they aren't in the box with all the others and I know I definately made them because I blogged them!!

Thanks for looking - Too busy to search for lost tags from Solihull

Edited to add: I have had a lovely play day this afternoon and recreated some more tags (and they are a vast improvement on the ones above!) - they are here if you would like to check them out.  Oh and I have found yesterdays tags too! they were hidden amongst my stamps of all places!
