Texture Play aka Inky Fingers Class

So thankfully there was Crop & Create recently because I still haven't found much time for crafting!  I finished up my Folio recently which was from the Texture Play Class at this year's much anticipated Crop & Create Event in September.  I was looking forward to this class the most and it was well worth the wait.  Vicki Boutin taught this class as well as the Fundamentals of Distress class at last year's event.  She NEVER disappoints!!

The folio - just gorgous!!  Look at that ribbon - it is seem binding ribbon coloured with Distress inks.  And the word band was distressed with Picket Fence Paint.

I had seen sneak peeks before the Event of this dragonfly and couldn't wait!!  This was our first project in the class -   we inked it up by generously with Distress Inks and then generously applied Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint.  After it was dry and the cracks had appeared we applied Chipped Sapphire Distress Stain to the tips of the wings and then a bit of Brushed Pewter Distress Stain.  Pumice Stone ink was applied to the body.
Here you can see the inside completed. 
The tags are meant to be adhered to the flaps inside the folio. I just haven't done that yet. 
First up was the Gold Embossed Texture Paste tag.  After applying the texture paste we applied gold embossing powder and let it dry.  Once it was dry we then heat embossed it so it wouldn't get too puffy.
Here you can see a close up of the gold embossing paste and the silver Distress Stain which was sprayed and dripped. 
Clear Embossed Stamp Tag - the image was stamped with distress ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  Then we inked the tag and did some water droplets to create 'water marking'.  
Love how the Crushed Olive ink looks gold.
Tissue Wrapped Texture Tag - tissue tape was added with multi medium underneath.  We inked the tissue and added Picket Fence Distress Paint with our fingers to mute the ink.  then we added Tarnished Brass Distress Paint through a stencil with a sponge.
That feather!!  A bit of Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint was applied to the tip.  Once dry we applied some Tarnished Brass Distress Paint.
Texture Paste Stamped Tag - texture paste was applied to the tag.  Once dry we inked the tag and stamped it.  We brushed over the texture paste with some Brushed Pewter Distress Stain and after that was dry applied Pumice Stone Ink by brushing over the paste with the pad.
Love the shimmer from the Distress Stain.  
Debossed Tag - we used the debossed side of the tag and applied Distress Inks.  Then we misted the mat with Brushed Pewter Distress Stain and dragged the tag through.  A little bit of Pumice Stone Distress Ink was brushed over the tag as well.  
I love how the ink colours remain in the debossed areas and the stain and Pumice Stone ink was only applied to the surface.
Tinted Texture Paste Tag - I love the bright colours we used on this tag.  The background was created by inking over the texture paste (which was tinted pink) and then we applied Chipped Sapphire Distress Stain.
This gorgeous butterfly was created by applying the Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint before the ink.  The crackle didn't completely cover the butterfly.  After it was dry we applied the Chipped Sapphire and Brushed Pewter Distress Stains.

That's Vicki in the background giving us the peace sign :)
