Day 2 homework Tim Holtz creative chemistry 103

I've been trying to keep up, as much as time allows me,  with Tim's on line Creative Chemistry Classroom. Thanks so much for your lovely comments on my Day 1 homework; my blogging friend Sara even gave me an A* bless her ;0) If you missed that post you can see it here

My studio serves as my classroom and I set my tablet up on my far table. I love being able to freeze the vidoes giving me time to create.  For my Day 2 homework I used his ditress paint resist technique to create my background for my card.

For my background stamps I used some more from my lady rose set

I decided to go for a really sunny  palette with my distress stains

This was my background left outside my studio on the bench to dry
 Then I decided to do my Jane's Journal bit and go off piste to finish my card. I stamped and coloured Lady Rose herself with my distress ink.
 I made some flowers and a crackeled butterfly for my embellies and die cut my sentiment in glitter card
And here is my finished Lady Rose in all her glory
with a couple of close ups

I had a great day 2 and I am looking forward to Day 3...collage mediums and texture paste no less!

I would also like to link up with the following challenges
