New Dylusions Stamps in the House

I just got some new stamps last week...the Doodle Parts set from Dylusions.

This is my twist on the set with the Ink Sprays from Dylan as the starting point.

Bright, yes, they're always bright. If you own them, you know that's a fact!


The lower left corner is the Bubblegum Pink and the center is Vibrant Turquoise. Fresh Lime, Squeezed Orange and Lemon Zest make it fun. Everything else is a mixture of sprays, splotches, and runs.

The next step was using Jet Black Archival ink to stamp the new set around the tag.

I find the "Sea Creature" doodle just too much fun. That's my name for it, I'm sure Dylan has a better one picked out.

Then I got out the Distress Markers and the white Sharpie Pen.

I still wanted more definition, so I used the Black Glaze pen on some of the outlines and dots.

The Distress Markers add more color and shadows that make the contrast a bit more stark.

The tag is dark, so the white pen and the gold lame' bow on top made it brighten up and sparkle.

Love the Pens, the Stamps, the Inks and the Markers.

Take out a tag and just start playing.

Now the weekend pictures of family....I've GOT to share.

Remember the ALEX card I led you through....well here is THE ALEX.

One of 2 kids chosen to give a speech at the graduation ceremony for Moline HS class 2012 of 480 students, and he ROCKED it!

"He's Confident, he's funny and he's good-looking!"

And we are so proud of him!

Then remember the NO BAR CODE card for beloved granddaughter Brittany?

Well she liked it. Isn't she gorgeous???

And the necklace I gave her she has on is a Tim Holtz Bat charm I added 2 holes to it, and a chain.

The little ghoul (girl) loved it!

Be Well and Be Blessed...I am.

That's such a funky bright tag - who knew sea monsters could look so trendy and flash! Love how the white comes out, might need to invest in some Sharpies. Huge congrats with the family success - wonderful pictures, the cabinet card doodle looks tailor made for Brittany. Gorgeous!
