Creative Chemistry Day 9

Only one day left. :::insert sad face::: I have learned so much these last two weeks. I will truly be sad to see tomorrow come. Today was PERFECT! All about Perfect Pearls Powder and Liquid and what-all can be done with them. I found out I can mix the powder with multi medium and use it as a colorant! I see that on a mixed media piece coming up soon.
 Perfect Distress Mist. Remember the day of the don't gots? And that I only had ONE color of re-inker? Well, I still only gots ONE color of re-inker. Old Paper. We were supposed to mix THREE colors of re-inkers in a mini mister aling with water and three different colors of Perfect Pearls powder. So, if you only gots one re-inker, you mix three different powders with the same color re-inker! So there is no pretty different colors of ink on my tag, but there are some interesting blips and blops of Perfect Pearls! Stamp set is CTMH Love Life (still available, Anita on pg 100!)
 Perfect Distress. Probably my favorite technique today. Use a light color Distress Stain (Spun Sugar) on a wet tag and dry well. Stamp image on tag using Distress Inks in different colors. Apply Perfect Pearls Powder with a brush. Remove extra Pearls using a large dry brush. Mist lightly with water to cause the Distress Inks to run. Dry tag with heat gun. Ink edges of tag with Distress Inks. (which I forgot to do!)
Perfect Splatter Distress. This is kind of a play on the first days tags Wrinkle Free Distress where you smoosh your ink pads on your Kraft sheet and spritz with water then smoosh your tag into the color. Dry and keep smooshing and drying the tag til you achieve the look you want. The only addition to this tag is you flick small bits of Perfect Pearls Powder over the ink before you spritz the water so you get these "puddles" of pearls. The sentiment tag was given to me years ago by a friend. I don't know where she got it, but it pretty much describes me to a "T!!"

I like all of these Sue, the stamps on the first one are really lovely. Tag 2 is gorgeous - love the colour changes and Tag 3 is quite Dyanesque in its colourway - you could use it as a bookmarker for your journal. Love that sentiment!

you really have to get some re-inkers. I use them all the time... That Perfect Splatter tag is glorious. I ABSOLUTELY love the colors and how they fell on the tag. Beautiful.

Yogi is right about re=inkers, until this class I had no idea how versatile they are. Your tags are outstanding, really beautiful.
