Day 3 Creative Chemistry 101

Today is Day 3 of my class with Tim Holtz. A talented and amazing young man, nothing new to most of you.
We used alcohol inks, archival ink, and distress inks with glossy card stock, manilla tag, and an embossing folder.  The 2 on the outside edges are on glossy card stock and the tag in the middle is just a manilla tag.
I didn't have all of the stamps that he used in my arsenal, but I had the correct inks. Now if you're talking colors, that's another matter. Tim says he doesn't take time to think about his colors to much he knows the properties of the products and what they will do together and that's what this class is about for us novices with these products. You can try to duplicate the colors he uses, but he moves pretty fast and as he's creating he is very clear that we can and should use the colors we like. So, that being said today I went with some colors and stamps that I have, followed the technique and came out with some results that I love and will feel confident to be able to create some more really neat projects.
Gotta go rest up for Day 4.

Happy Creating--
Beverly G ♥

Your tags look wonderful. I love it when people use other stamps and share their take on the tutorial. Creative dreams.

Lovely tags Beverly, and I really like the stamps you've used too, like you I had to substitute a few! It's just impossible to try to replicate his colours as he moves way too fast with that blending tool.....lol :D
Thanks for sharing!
