Creative Chemistry - day 5

Hi everyone,

Pffeww, luckily I made ​​it to catch up before Monday. So I'm up to speed for the next class. Today I've done day 5, and we have again super nice techniques learned and this time with stains. I only have a few stains, because I did not know what I had to do with them. I have seen videos. but I still didn't use them alot and now I love them.

The first technique today is stained kraft resist, and the kraft resist paper is one of the supplies that I bought for this course. So therefore I had to use it. Unfortunately I only have a few stains. I've got dark ones and very light ones. I used a dark one, in this case Faded Jeans. It's become a very dark tag,but I like it, because it's so different.

Then I was the stamping technique with stains turn. I think this is really a very difficult technique. The beautiful background with stains, and that special spray technique with the mister, and then stampingwith stains, phew. This was a tricky one. I had too many stains on the stamp, I think ... But quite a cool effect!

Finally the marbled stains technique. This I seriously redone 3 times. I was getting kind of mud twice. As I mentioned, I only have a few stains, apparently I picked the wrong combinations. Ultimately, I've made a mix ​​of stains and wrinkle free technique. And I think it's the best tag that I've made today.

Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!



  1. Your tags look very nice. Tim makes everything look so simple, but I have found it takes a little practice to make it that simple.

  2. Sannie, these are all really gorgeous, I love the butterfly one the best - beautiful work. Anna xx

  9. Your tags are just wonderful! I like all of them and found it interesting to read your explanations.

    What I really like on your blog is, that you have a "picture-list" of articles you used. For somebody, who is not the biggest stamper, it is very useful to see how something can be used in a project.
