Here are more technique tags I have done trying to finish up all the techniques in the Tim Holtz Creative Chemistry 101 Class at  Believe it or not there are still some techniques I was not able to do.  Some of them use Distress Markers which I don't have (they are fairly new item) and even some Rock Candy Distress Stickles I don't have (but will be getting from local scrapbook store soon I hope). 

The first tag above uses Distress Embossing powder.  I only had the color of embossing powder- Vintage Photo- which is a brown, but did stamp the image from Stubby Stampers ( in several different inks and noticed the tone of the embossing powder changes depending on what ink is underneath it. 

The second tag is Rusted Enamel Technique and uses inks and clear embossing powder.  Very cool to see in person as it really does not look like it can just be paper.

Third tag is a technique using embossing powder and them removing the embossing powder later.  I did not intially see the value in that since I was thinking why not just emboss and leave it that way?  The nifty thing is, though, once you remove embossing, the card is smooth to the touch again rather than bumpy from embossing powder.  The floral stamp on here again is from Stubby Stampers, and the swirl stamp is from a clear stamp set from a company called Autumn Leaves.

I do have one more tag I did, a Mardi Gras theme, but need some feathers as a final touch.  So, I will be posting that one as soon as I can find my purple, green, and gold feathers that I have stashed around here somewhere. 

Thanks for viewing and please leave comment if you like.
