CCC#3 Distress Watercoloring

Distress Watercoloring-Part 1.

I am going to keep it simple: This current challenge is #5.
Distress WaterColoring which can be found on page 39
of Tim's latest Compendium of Curiosities Book 3.
This odd numbered challenge sponsor is from the Instant Emporium 
which will offer a $50 Gift certificate. Thank you to them
and the lucky person who gets it! And thank you to Linda 
Ledbetter for hosting and the CC Crew.  Also Tim and Mario 
for offering a great prize stash to the lucky winner!

The ingredients for My Mad Chemist is as follows:

Tim Holtz Chemist stamps, Distress Pens, Distress Paint,
Corragated Cardboard, Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock,
I choose to use the smooth side when I stamped my images,
with Archival Black Ink. Time Holtz WaterBrush, Mini Distress Ink,
Paper Towels, and cup of Water.  Ranger Manilia Cardstock, I had 
burnt the background on the cardboard sometime ago. I used small
splatters on the background and on the Chemists apron. I figure 
in his madness it must be messy!  Tim Holtz Alpha Parts Ransom
for the lettering and Thrift Shop Ephemera Pack. Distress Stickles 
was used on stamped background to give a little shimmer.

Thank you for stopping by and don't forget to Enjoy the Journey,
