DT: Back to Basics and Beyond challenge: Use a spray

Posted by

Hi!

Today’s blog is a design team contribution that I made at the very last minute and still have stained hands as a result.

The challenge at Back to Basics and Beyond is to Use a Spray and I’ve used my good but very messy Dylusions sprays!

So I started with a piece of card and a stencil and some cool colours of inks…

And I have no control using Dylusions so this saturated the card, bled under the stencil, and made the desk very messy!

But still a cool effect once dry. I did also try a little imprint of the stencil using the excess ink which was fun.

Next I used the white Dylusions ink and a different stencil.

This again puddles ink a little but some areas the circles were more defined.

I then added more yellow ink using a circle aperture to make it only in the centre.

I dried the cardstock and trimmed it down to become a card topper and then started stamping and doodling to create this card.

I used stanps from Alpaca Pals and a Tim Holtz die to finish off.

Love how this looks.

The variance in colour in the background and the subtle patterns are really cool.

Hope you like my experiment with sprays. Please grab your own sprays and join us on the blog.

Happy crafting!

  1. Catherine – I love the colors and the mixed media journal feel of this design. The stamping around the edge of the image makes you want to look closer at every detail to see if you missed any surprises! : )
