Creative Chemistry 102 - Day 1

I signed up for the Online Class Creative Chemistry 102 which started Monday this week. I loved last year's 101, so naturally I had to sign up for the 102 with the fabulous Tim Holtz.

I was in Copenhagen (far away from my scrapdesk) for the first 2 days - so I am running a bit behind with the classes and trying out the different techniques!

Today I am sharing  a card using a technique from day1 - stamping resist. Stamping with distress paint - love the mat look! I chose the wonderful Trick & Treaters stamp which is actually a solid stamp (see the last card (from last year) - but somehow I applied the paint in such a way that I ended up with an outline image of that stamp (a ghost like look) - and I just love that!! What do you think?

After heatsetting I distressed the background using scattered straw, evergreen bough & black soot.

I love this outline look so much!

And here is a card I made last year using that same stamp! (A more feminine kind of card!)

Now, I can't wait to try out the other techniques! Are you joining, too??

Thanks for stopping by ! Have a great day/evening!
