Online Card Class Tim Holtz Creative Chemistry 103 – Day Two Distress Paint and Sprays

Yikes!  It has taken me a whole week to get Day two done.   Tim does not mess around when it comes to teaching us techniques.   He packs a full class.

Day Two is all about Distress Paint and Sprays

I have learned so much, and have made a mess of my craft area and have stained my fingers.  LOL

I decided on this card to go for the Halloween look.

I have some older Anna Griffin stamps that had large words.  This was perfect for the tag and card.  I love the broken glass stsncil and it looks like a spider web.

  • Distress Paint Lifting Technique.

Day Two Tag Distress Paint Lifting Technique

For both the tag and card I used some valentine themed items.  Not your traditional LOVE type cards, but it works for me.  I dyed the ribbon to match the distress colors.

  • Distress Stain Rub Resist Technique

This tag and card was hard.  I must have had this rubon for a million years.  It was almost impossible to get onto the paper.   I tried heating it.  rubbing it.  cursing at it.   I finally got it to work.   So glad I did not rip the paper.

I even dyed the cord with Distress Carved Pumpkin.

  • Distress Luminous Mica Technique

I liked the Mica spray.  This spray can be addictive.

Day Two Tag Luminois Mica Technique

For the card I decided to used the Hero Arts Goldfish.   I also added some bubbles with Glossy Accents.

  • Distress Marker Spritzed Watercolor Technique

I know I bought a Distress Marker Sprintzer but I could not find it anywhere.  I finally had to buy a new one.  I search everywhere.  Finally a local store had it.   I was sure the moment I got home the other one would show up.   LOL.

I fought this spritzer tooth and nail.  When I finally got the hang of it, I was pretty much done.   It tends to move the marker to the side, so I was not getting any spray from the marker.   Once I figured it out, it finally marked my paper.

Since I just bought the Tim Holtz Summer dies, I had to make a shaker card using the palm tree and the words.
