Good Morning Everyone
I hope you had a great weekend. Because of my fall last week I'm still doing a lot of sitting around and taking this time to relax and catch up on reading. I normally like to stay active, but still thankful the injuries are not worse and I will heal. Thank you for all your well-wishes, they are appreciated.
Yesterday I was 'itching' to do something crafty so I decided to get out my new Dylusions Inks. I can spray inks while standing up and do a little stamping, just can't get into making cards where I need to move around my room.
Without looking at any tutorials, I created a 'mucky mess'. I wondered why is this looking so awful when I've seen such beautiful creations on Blogs that I follow ? So I search UTube and watch tutorial videos where I learn you should spray water first and have a big role of paper towels handy.
I tried again.... and 'ta da' ...beautiful vibrant colours emerge ! This is great fun & I can't wait to 'play' some more. Now I would like to add some stencils to my growing crafting tools. It never ends does it ?
Here is the simple tag I created. The colours are more vibrant than this photo shows.
After spraying the background with Dylusions Inks, I stamped with Black Stazon ink using Hero Art, S5154 Three Ferns, Designs by Ryn CM-F5 Leaves & the word 'Art' is from Chocolate Baroque, Artistic Expressions set. I was stamping at a table that is uneven so the ferns didn't stamp properly, but I decided they look 'distressed' and it would be fine on this tag, this is a practice piece. I added a little fibre & leaf charm.
