Tim Holtz Online Card Class–Creative Chemistry 101 Day 2

I decided to take an online card class – I’ve never taken one before.  But since Tim Holtz is actually the teacher of it, I couldn’t resist.  He has a class going on right now called Creative Chemistry 101, which is all about the different properties of Ranger products: Distress Ink, Liquid Pearls, Adirondack Alcohol Inks, and more.  I won’t be going into too much detail as I don’t think that’s fair to share for free what people registered for the class have paid for, but I will show some of my project samples.

Last night I made some tags:

Tim Holtz Creative Chemistry - Day 2 (3)

The one on the left is a pretty standard background style of his – Distress Inks with water flickers.

The middle is more of a watercolor style technique – I think you might see much more of this on the blog…

The right is another technique that I don’t think I duplicated properly but it still came out cool.

Here’s some detailed close-ups:
