I'm still having fun experimenting with the vibrant Dylusions Inks, but gosh your hands become an inky mess :) I should find some surgical gloves to use with them. I decided to use Design by Ryn's stamps together with these spray inks for this card design.
Ryn is a talented Canadian Artist and her unique stamp designs are hand drawn. Her rubber stamps are high quality & deeply etched which allows them to be applied to a variety of surfaces. If you haven't had a chance to check out Ryn's stamp designs, please visit her website at Designs by Ryn . She ships overseas and south of the Canadian Border :) You can also find her on Facebook - Designs by Ryn
I used the following two Designs by Ryn stamps for this card: CM-T7 Circle Custer Set & CM-F3 Black-eye Susan. She has many wonderful textured stamp designs that make great backgrounds.
The background was created with the Blue & Lime Dylusions Inks (one of my favorite colour combos). After drying the ink I used the 'Ghost' technique with Crafters Market - Reversed Mini Ringlet template on the top half. When dry, I stamped the Cluster Set with Salty Ocean Distress Ink.
Oh yes of coarse I bought some templates which are great to use with spray inks. I was inspired to purchase the Ringlet template after seeing Marja, talented artist & card designer at Marja's Stamp Addiction , use it in one of her beautiful designs.
The Quote is from the Fiskers- Friends Forever Quotes, a wonderful clear set that I bought at Crop Circles.
The Black-eye Susan's were stamped on watercolour paper and embossed with black. I coloured with Tombows: 126, 133, 452, 535 - which are obviously not 'true' Black-eye Susan colours, or they would be called something else such as 'Blue-eyed' Susan's :) I carefully cut them out and mounted onto the background.
