Summer of Creative Chemistry - Week 3 Challenge

For week 3, students were challenged to make something using Perfect Pearls powders and/or sprays. I did the Perfect Splatter Distress technique which uses Distress Inks with Perfect Pearls powders.

Since every time you do this technique it will be different, I made several tags at the same sitting so I would have a choice of what background to use for my challenge piece.

Here's a picture of the three tags I ended up with:

I had recently gotten some of the newer Distress Inks colors and used Fossilized Amber, Twisted Citron, Mermaid Lagoon, Abandoned Coral, and Wilted Violet along with Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls on two of the tags, and Blue Patina on the center tag.

Here is a closeup of the Perfect Pearls as it is usually hard to see shiny finishes on computer or phone screens.

Since the backgrounds ended up being so colorful and busy, I decided to add just a few simple additions so as not to take away from all that inky goodness.

Just stamped the phrase from Stampers Anonymous Layering Stamp and Stencil set in Ranger black Archival ink, added a shiny metal dragonfly embellishment on a popdot, silver braided ribbon, and a small strip of the Industrious metal stickers from Tim Holtz idea-ology line.

Thanks for checking out my blog. Now on to week 4.
