Summer of Creative Chemistry - week two - part two- make a difference

Well so after a weekend of Creative Chemistry summer school - week two , here are the rest of the results from my playtime...

if you would like to see the results of part one - please hop here  , week one can be found here and here .

This is the result of a custom made ink pad, but I have yet to make a finished piece with this one ...still sticking to my blue/brown palette .. but I do love the soft coloured effect...

now for  couple more backgrounds and the finished tag can be found below ..

This tag comprises of marbled stains background... and watercolouring with re-inkers ... so much fun and I am loving allowing myself some playtime .. to do just that ..play 

I added plenty of my favourite idea-ology .. and some dyed seam binding...

a little more idea-ology , a girl can never have enough , right?

and here is a close up ...of the coloured image ..

This tag ... uses stained kraft resist... but maybe I need to take a leaf out of my little Lucys book and bolder with my colours ?
but you know me ...I do love my browns ...

here is a collage ... 

I added some stamping and some ...dyed seam binding at the top ...and some mini gears ..

and finally ... these playtimes have be spent in parts with my gorgeous little Lucy, who is braver with colour than me and a little star ...

here is her custom made ink pad...all chosen and coloured by her x 

so that's all ... for this week ...

keep those fingers inky!
