Playing with Dylusions

I took the plunge and bought the latest dylusions colours with my Christmas money, mainly because they were in a set and less money that way.
I've sprayed loads of bits of paper, but so far only managed to make two into cards! It was loads of fun, though!!!
This first card has now reached it's destination, so I can post it. As well as the Dylusions I used memento inks in teal zeal, grape jelly and lilac posies. All stamps are from Inkylicious. The button has been in my stash for so long (Nearly ten years at a guess!) I loved how well it went with the colours.
On this second one I also used a dylusions stencil and a creative expressions mask, black and white pen and a bit of card candy for the flower centre. This is the same Inkylicious daisy stamp as on the card above. Thanks for looking and for all your lovely comments. I will be round to visit as soon as I can. At the moment I am writing posts at the weekend and scheduling / publishing them to space them out.


  1. Oooh, these are both lush Sally! Fabulous colours and glad you said the little flower on the first one is a button because first thing I thought was isn't it sweet! Love the Dylusions stencil on the 2nd card. That's been high on my wish list ever since I spied it.

  5. Two beautiful cards Sally, I love the dylusion sprays and you've made gorgeous cards with them. A great sentiment as well which can be suitable for so many occasions. I'm back from my travels now and able to catch up with everyones blogs.

  6. It looks like you did have rather a lot of inky fun - I had to do a double take when you mentioned it being the same daisy in both. I love that second one with the bold placement of the vine & how the daisy just sits midst the leaves with that lovely orange centre which has white on it echoing your highlights on the vine.

  10. Those sprays are so scrumptious looking! You are quite the expert at getting a good look at them. Gorgeous cards!

  11. Your Dylusions are WON-derful. I loved each card, and you're doing great with the stencils. I manage to smudge mine, so am taking a Hero Arts online class doing stencils & embossing paste, hope to get a bit better with the stenciling. MBox has some new plastic stencils out but mine are on backorder. You did just fabulous on your 1st efforts and these sprays really are a lot of fun. You just never really know what the final result will be. The pearlized sprays are pretty over them too, if you let the piece air dry just a bit, but then hit with the pearl while it's still 'moveable' ink. Can't wait to see more of your work with these.
