Playing with Dylusions



A very Good Morning all you crafty Peeps, thought I would share my first offerings from my playtime with my Dylusions.........oh what  fun and lovely messy mitts as well..............you are right Shirley, they  are  still messy a day and two showers on.

I have been so inspired what some of my blog friends do with theirs and the wonderful vibrant colours which really appeal, that I have been promising myself some for a while now, so on Sunday when I went to Stamperama  a few bottles feel into my basket..........along with quite a few other bits and pieces, although I was very good as I set myself a budget and came home with money still in my purse, that has to be a first for me.

So far I have only used the autumnal colours although I have a pink and purple one as well, so another inky session planned. On the one at the top I used turquoise, squeezed orange and fresh lime and...........a spritz of pearl glimmer mist, couldn't resist. The harlequin and script stamp are also from my haul from Visible Image and the flower an unmounted one whose origin is uncertain because as usual I lost the packing. The butterfly is Penny Black and I added a little white highlighter pen.


The background of the second card is fresh lime and a little squeezed orange and melted chocolate......don't you just love the names they give these, then turquoise sprayed through a flower mask. I sprayed the corrugated with the chocolate as well and the card for the flowers with the orange, then made the flowers using Ruth Tonic punch and stamp rose set. The sentiments are from Stamp Addicts Dream set.

Enjoy the rest of your week everyone.

Brenda, don't you just love these colours?! This looks fantastic!! I recommend the Craft Scrubbie (by Ranger) to clean your hanks - it is really good! Glad you took the inky plunge....even if you do blame me!

Интересненько, отличная игра с красками, смешивание цветов... Если не считать, что немного темноватая первая, чуть грустная получилась, вторая отличная...

These are fantastic Brenda! I LOVE the colours on the first one, the butterfly really stands out in the orange on that background - beautiful! And I love the rustic feel the corrugated cardboard adds to the second one, really nice touch - and those orange flowers are the business :)

these are gorgeous brenda! the dylusions are on order at my local stamp store so i'm anxious for them to arrive; the true test will be for my hands to work the pump - so far i've not had much success with sprays. if i can't work it, i'll just have to admire your beautiful cards and shirley's.

These are gorgeous, Brenda. I love the colours you've created with the sprays, they seem to give such intense colour. I may have to treat myself!! I have permanently inky fingers from inks and sprays so why not add a few more colours!!
Love the white hightlights you've added.

Hi Brenda, WOW what can l say they are both stunning pieces. Loving all the colours everything just works so well together, it feels good to have a play with messy stuff now and again. Well done on coming home with money still in your purse...the only way l will do that at Harrogate in a fortnight will be if l use my card lol but will try to stick to budget (hopefully) x Susan x

I have never heard of this product-I'm guessing it is some kind of paint-like substance. Very nice card. Love all the elements.

Rhonda Miller said...

Beautiful card!!
hugs

Paula (PEP) said...

Looks like you had real fun with these. I love the way you've used the same layout for both these cards & yet they look totally different. I particularly like the way the white lace in the first picks up on your white highlights & when I saw the word chocolate I smiled at the apt use of that corrugated brown panel - rippling chocolate maybe???
