Day 5 homework for Creative Chemistry 103

No I haven't lost the ability to count, I am posting homework for day 5 and not day 4. Day 4 of creative chemistry was all about Distress crayons but sadly I own none. I have learnt some cool techniques and will have to play when Santa, or someone else is good to me.

So day 5 is all about alcohol inks and yupo paper and OMGoodness what fun I have had with these. Luckily I own lots of both so I had some great play time. I have played with Yupo a while ago..if you missed that post have a look here
For my first piece of homework  I chose the alcohol ink stamped resist technique.
I chose some lovely sunny colours as it has been such a glorious sunny weekend. First I made a background
I chose the corner floral stamp from this set 

and once I had used Tim's technique it looked like this...amazing how my stamp created the resist, almost a ghostly shadow.
So then it was time to put on my creative hat to do a "Jane's Journal and make my piece into a card.........I think these sunny photos from my holiday played a part.
 The fields of sunflowers in Tuscany had reached their ripening stage but I still found a few in amazing sight.

So this is what I made, I just added this gorgeous MB frame and a simple TH sentiment on a Spellbinders element. 
I really do love playing with Yupo and alcohol inks...I think this is my favourite day so far....there is only Day 6 left now.

I would also like to link my card up to the following challenges;

That's Crafty 1/3 zesty zing
Pixie's snippets playground #241 I used a snippet of card for my spellbinder element.
Simon says stamp Mondays celebrate 
Memory box yellow
Pile it on Make your own background
Time Out holidays with optional twist of no stamping mine is hot summer holidays, walking out in the country in the sunshine...bliss. There is no stamping on my card so I got the twist too!

Thanks for popping in...I'm going back to my studio to finish off my other projects. I will share day 6 with your tomorrow. We saw Jason Bourne at the cinema last was fabulous...action packed and real "Bourne"! Enjoy your evening, it might be Pimm's O'Clock here soon.....;0)

Back tomorrow,

Bye for now,

  1. Great colour Jane, I love it, almost autumnal as is our weather here today. :(
    You'd need your macintosh on here to enjoy your Pimms outside.
