Creative Chemistry Play Day 5 Shabby Chic Tag 1

I took Tim Holtz's Creative Chemistry class 102 (By the way 101 and 102 are the best and WELL worth the money) this past week and this is the first chance I have gotten to play with it. So hopefully this week (although it is not too promising) I will get a chance to try a few more techniques. First of all Tim makes everything look easy and I am so glad I have the videos to watch over and over and over (I am sure you get the drift but it will be a lot!)... I wanted to start with Day 5 since I had just recently seen this but unfortunately the only one I had the supplies for was the shabby chic which is not too much my style but wanted to try for fun! I started with black paper not too thick and I think I would like to try it again with thicker cardstock and trying to paint black first. I also only had extra fine clear instead of the regular so that would have been better too. So my first try I used Mama Elephant Filigree (I am in love with this stamp~just so you know <3! and clear embossing powder, heat set and then put distress paint salty ocean on and wiped away after a bit. Very fun but putting the paint on with the blending tool is going to take some practice for me not as easy as it looked when Tim did it! So my first one is here:
