Here is my latest “homework” from my Creative Chemistry 101 online class. These two tags were made using Distress Inks and Perfect Pearls. It is a bit difficult to see the full result in a photo, but there is quite a sheen on these from the mica powder in the Perfect Pearls. This is a wonderful technique–I love it! These were made with several layers of homemade Distress Ink sprays (from mixing re-inkers with water and Perfect Pearls), then additional Perfect Pearls brushed on in some places, and then more Distress Inks applied with blending foam. Thanks for stopping by.

Latest on InstagramDay 30/61 - Daisy Yellow Index-Card-A-Day Challenge. Prompt: Magic. I collaged some gel print scraps, washi tape and handmade tape I pulled from my gel plate for the background. I couldn’t help but think those little pops of Dina’s washi tape looked hypnotic! Very appropriate! 😉 The Houdini graphic is from an old magic magazine my son had from his young magician days! Happy Weekend!Day 29/61 - Daisy Yellow Index-Card-A-Day Challenge. Prompt: Neon. I used some florescent pink ink, blended with a “calmer” pink and printed with bubble wrap on my gel plate directly onto the index card. I then stamped one of my relief prints I carved earlier this year onto the gel printed index card. I’m enjoying the double print cards I’m making this year.Day 28/61 - Daisy Yellow Index-Card-A-Day Challenge. Prompt: Parachute. When I saw this prompt, my mind immediately went to this stamp set from @tcp_stamps The Cat’s Pajamas, that I’ve had for over a decade! I paper-pieced the parachute, using a gel print. I colored the bunny with @prismacolor pencils. I like the index card showing up on my ICADs when possible. It is just a reminder that you can do a lot on/with a humble office supply!
