Creative Chemistry - day 6

Hi everyone,

It's already time for week 2 of this amazing online class from Tim Holtz. It's so much fun and I'm learning so much and I enjoy it to the fullest. Today the distress markers were on the program. Awesome! I don't have them all yet, because the boxes were sold out and so I bought the ones I use the most (Distress Inkpads that is) including picket fence of course.

First we learned about water coloring with markers. This technique is super fun. My favorite is blending on the craft sheet with water brush on dry paper.

Then blending with markers. This technique is also very cool. It's a bit the same as coloring with copics. Only the last butterfly doesn't match the technique. But I just had to try that one.

The last technique stamping with markers. It takes a bit of time before you completely colored the stamp, but super fun to do. Only when it went wrong when I distressed it. The butterflies are a bit faded into the background.

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



  1. WOW die vlinders zien er echt prachtig uit!! Wat mooi zeg!! Ik zie ze nog wel een keertje in het echt om goed de verschillen te bekijken, maar ze zijn echt super goed gelukt, heel gaaf!!!


  2. Sounds like a lot of fun, the butterflies are stunning,

  3. These are gorgeous - you are talented - I keep saying that don't I!! Your work looks as if you have been doing this forever!! I ordered the set of markers when they first came out - preorder. I still do not have them - I guess I should check with 7 Kids and see what is going on. Paint brushes on order along with some more alcohol ink. I have had a miserable time with my polymer clear Tim Holtz stamps - so had to give them up and go to something else. I have only done tags from classes 2 and 3. Well now I have written you a letter! Wonderful Sandra!!!!

  4. Super mooi weer Sandra!!!!
    Ik kom helaas zo veel tijd te kort momenteel om mee te doen......
    Groetjes Patricia
