It was a Dylusion-al Day !

What fun it is to get Stencils in the mail 2 days in a row!!!!

Stamps, Stencils, Spray Inks....yes, it's a great day in the Studio to play.

And thanks again for all the kits you ordered. They're all mailed out!!!

These are the end products....but how did they begin???

Let's get to work!

You remember the other day I showed you how I created 3 tags here?

OK, I used the one on the left for the Balloon Tag tutorial.

So I had the other 2 left to play with.

Let's start with the one on the right.

Using the new Dotted Flowers Stencil and Seedless Preserve Distress Ink, I added the image to the tag.

I LOVE how the stencils come alive with Distress Inks!

Onward....we need some contrast.

Add white dots with Snow Cap paint dabber.

Needs a bit more contrast.

Get out the Numbers Jumble stencil and the Black Soot Distress Ink.

Then maybe go a bit crazy with the White Sharpie.

Lastly, a bit of black pen and a stamp from Background Love with Jet Black Archival Ink.

And it's done!

You can do with it whatever else you want ....or just like it as it is.

Now the one with the Walnut Stain drops on it was fun, too.

Stamps, Distress Inks, Pens, and Stencils here as well.

The eye was my favorite on this one from the Pondering Petunia Collection.

I also used Stamps from Around the Edge, Background Love, and Basic Backgrounds from Dyan Reaveley's Dylusions.

Check out her tutorials...they are fantastic!


I added them to some black cardstock and let them be.

Let me know what you'd do with them....I'm all ears!!!

Debby said...

These are gorgeous! So you apply Distress inks with the ink blending tool? I have not tried that and I think that needs some playing time. Thanks for letting us know how you achieve the effects.

Beautiful tags. The white sharpie really adds dimension. Did you use it to color the eye in?

It's pretty hard to top these. But, I think my might make some ATC for a trade. I just bought some new stencils and I think this would really show them off.
