I'm still Dylusional



Morning Peeps, I found time for another play with my Dylusions last night and moved on to the pinks and purples, all such yummy colours. And before I go further, welcome to my new followers, it's lovely to have you and thank you for joining me.

On the top card the background and base have been sprayed with crushed grape and fresh lime, and on the base piece I over stamped with TH Papillion set and some swirls around the edge which I embossed with Frantage aged silver and purple crushed glass. I then used a new Penny Black stamp for the focal image, bleached the colour from the leaves and stamped the butterfly section a second time to decoupage. The word panel is my good old favourite Penny Black stamp cut into sections (details of all stamps etc., in the thumbnails below).


For this one I used the yummy same fresh lime with bubblegum pink......................can you tell I'm am totally taken with the vibrancy of the colours of these inks and goodness knows why it's taken me so long to get some. I randomly over stamped with a mixture of Visible Image stamps using a grey inkpad and embossed the swirls (no idea of make) with Frantage aged black. I dressed up the TH sewing room die and added some more of the TH flowers across the bottom, some dies cut swirls and a rose using Ruth's Tonic Rose punch and stamp set which I spritzed that with the same two colours of Dylusion inks. A sentiment and a chain to finish.

Have a good Thursday everyone, hope you are enjoying a bit of the sunshine we have there today, such a refreshing change from the weather of late.
