Creating with Tim!

Posted on

Tim Holtz is having the Summer of Creative Chemistry going on at Online Card Classes.  Reviews of Creative Chemistry 101 & 102 are going on right now, CC 103 will begin August 1.  As part of the reviews, Tim has been issuing challenges using techniques learned in the classes.  This week the challenge was to use Ranger Archival Ink.  I created these three note cards:

I used Tim’s technique featured over at the Ranger site, using alcohol inks on Yupo paper to create the background.  I had recently purchased some Yupo and decided to give it a try.  I followed Tim’s instructions including stamping (and embossing) using Archival Ink but then finished off my cards a bit differently.

I love how they turned out.  They are ready to add a personal note inside, pop in an envelope and mail to someone in my thoughts.

I’m adding these to the Summer Of Creative Chemistry week 4 challenge gallery.

Thanks for stopping by for a look at my latest creation, your comments make me smile.





Happy Birthday, Linda!

My friend is having a birthday and I made her a card to celebrate the day.

I shared some art supplies with her and needed a bag to put them in. I had this white gift bag on my desk waiting for an idea to cover up a stain.  I taped it down to my craft sheet, added some blended Distress Inks and stamped with Ranger Archival Jet Black ink.  I was very pleased with how it turned out.

Here’s wishing Linda a very happy birthday.  I hope it’s a day with food, art and wine!

It’s been so long since I’ve done a blog post, I’ve created some art but didn’t make the effort to share.  I hope to get more posts done in the future.

As always, I love reading comments.
