Social Dylusions

A big THANK YOU to everyone who came along to last night's Social Capers. There were lots of lovely cards and projects displayed and many different techniques being used by the ladies there.

Last night's product focus was the Dylusions Ink Sprays. These are bright, translucent inks which react with each other and with water - great fun to use! This card was made for the demo:

Inspired by demonstrating the ink sprays last night, I've continued playing at home today. I've been following ideas suggested here on the Friends in Art blog.
I've used Bubblegum Pink, Lemon Zest, Squeezed Orange and Calypso Teal to spray a manilla tag.
Seedless Preserves and Black Soot Distress Inks as directed. Picket Fence Distress Paint instead of the Snowcap dabber, and a white gel pen.
I've also sprayed a strip of pale yellow Bazzill with the four Dylusions inks. I'll stamp flowers on these and fussy-cut them out.
Here is the tag:
The finished card will go on display in the shop.
