Creative Chemistry Day 2 Technique Tags

In real time it is Day 4 of Creative Chemistry and I am working on Day 2 techniques.  These are two tags I made with the Embossing through a stencil technique.

The one on the right is done with the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous stencil called Stripes. I used an embossing powder called Enamelware that I bought years ago.  It is a Ranger product and is a combination of clear embossing and white embossing, so it gives a flecked look like on enamelware tins.

The one on the left was made by using stencil material and the Sizzix Tim Holtz Tattered Leaves die cut to cut my own stencil.  In order to make the tag, I used the same leaf on that stencil to color and emboss three separate times. I inked the rest of the tag and splattered after I had embossed the leaf three times.

I will be adding the leaf one to my book ring of technique tags, but think I will save the striped one for use as a Halloween tag and get to decorating it and adding embellishments some time soon.

Thanks for looking!  Comments are always appreciated if you have the time.


  1. Wonderful leaves and so neat you made your own stencil. I must look for enamelware embossing powder or try to make my own. I am enjoying these classes, too!

  2. Totally love this! I've had so much trouble getting Distress Paints here in Australia, so I've had to use stains in some cases.

    But I'm loving the class, and learning sooooo much! Just wish I had more time to play.

  3. Beautiful tags and lovely colors.
    And this class is awesome!
    So much to learn :o))
    Hugs, Anne
