Summer of Creative Chemistry Week 3 Challenge & A Blog Named Hero June Challenge

Here is the Summer of Creative Chemistry Week 3 Challenge - using Perfect Pearls & Distress Inks or Stains to create a project. Below is the challenge photo:


A Blog Named Hero June Challenge theme is vellum, below is the challenge photo:

I would like to make a card to attend these two challenges at the same time. Below is the card I made for these two challenges:


I white embossed the starts on a piece of white cardstock. I used Distress Ink pads - salty ocean, peacock feathers, chipped sapphire, seedless preserves, and picked raspberry to stamp them on the craft sheet, and I put some Perfect Pearls on top of them. Then, I spray the water mist and put the white cardstock on top of it to make the background. I cut a piece of vellum with circle die and stamped "hello" from Spring Hello set (Hero Arts) on the vellum and white embossed it. Finish the card by attaching the circle vellum on the Distress background. Below is another look of the card:


Supplies:
Cardstock: MTF
Stamps: Simon Says Stamp, Hero Arts
Ink Pads: Versamark, Distress ink pads
Others: vellum, Perfect Pearls, white embossing powder

Thinking Of You Card With Distress Stains

Here is the card I made to attend Mandy's Facebook June Challenge as well as Tim Holtz Summer of Creative Chemistry week 2 challenge. Below is the challenge photo of Summer of Creative Chemistry:


Here is the card I made for this challenge:


I applied Distress Stains - dusty concord, broken china, spun sugar, cracked pistachio, and picket fence (in between each color) on the craft sheet and mist them with water. Then, I put a piece of white cardstock to make the background. Let it dry completely. I stamped the model from Runway stamp set and colored with Copic markers. I brushed the clear Wink of the Stella pen on the dress to make it shiny. I also stamped the Paris stamp (from Tim Holtz Cityscapes stamp set) with light grey on the background. Stamped the greeting "thinking of you" at the bottom of the card. Attached the girl with foam tapes on the right-hand side of the card. Below is another look of the card:

Distress Batik Effect Technique

Here is the card I made with Distress ink pads using the batik effect technique. Below is the finished card:

I stamped these leaf stamps (Tim Holtz Falling Leaves set) with Versamark ink pad on a white cardstock and heat embossed with white embossing powder. Then, I sprayed a little bit of water and crimped the white cardstock to create the folded lines. I used the bone folder to smooth out the folded lines. I applied five different green shades of Distress ink pads on the leaf background (see below):


The five green shades of Distress ink pads are: evergreen bough, mowed lawn, peacock feather, twisted citrus, and cracked pistachio. I tried to spread out the green colors on the different spots of white cardstock. Then, I applied more and more inks to darken the colors. So, the colors will go into all of the folded lines to create the batik effect. Finish the card by stamping the greeting on a stripe of vellum and white embossed it. Below is another look of the card:


I would like to have this card to attend the following two challenges:

1) Simon Monday Challenge - Monochrome, below is the challenge photo:

2) Tim Holtz Summer of Creative Chemistry - Week 1 of Challenge 1: using 4 or more colors of Distress ink. Below is the challenge photo:


Supplies:
Cardstock: MTF
