Designs by Ryn meets Dylusions Inks

Hello crafty people !  I hope you are having a great week.

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.

This card looks gorgeous. Like the colours.
Nice and sunny, just like your weather.
The circle cluster stamp looks beautiful on your card and of course I took a look at Designs by Ryn. Loved the hummingbird stamps!!!
Thanks also for the videotip.
Nice and interesting to see how easy people make backgrounds.
PS: try to clean your hands with pure lemonjuice, it bleaches.
Have a nice weekend too. Groetjes Gery

Hey Shirley, you did a great job again with the stamps! I don't think it matters that Black eyed Susans aren't those colours in the natural world. It's art why not play?! :) Love the colour combos you put together!

Wow Shirley, this is stunning. I love the colours you've used, and the flowers look just as good in the vibrant yellow and blues. I really like the background stamp of Ryn's that you've used, I really must get around to ordering some soon.

Hope you're having a great week.
