This week I played with some Dylusions spray inks that I purchased a few weeks ago. They are beautiful and so very vibrant. Initially I only purchased three colors, but I will definitely be getting more colors as my budget allows!
These ATC's are for a Paper Traders swap called Chirp Chirp. I got a partial sheet of gift wrap at a barn sale last year for 25 cents. There were lots of birds, nests w/eggs and butterflies on it. For the background, I sprayed a full sheet of cardstock with water and then the blue and green ink sprays. I added another spray of water to help blend the colors and then let it dry in the sun. Then I splattered some watered down white acrylic paint over the whole sheet. After that was dry, I stamped a small flower image randomly with salty ocean distress ink. The collage came together so easily and I love the German scrap trim to ground it all! The small white butterfly die cuts were sent to me by a friend and were the perfect accent. The alphabet letter die is from Memory Box. I am very pleased with the way these turned out and had so much fun making them!
Here is the front of the page I did for my friend Maureen's book. Recently she has been seeing spiders here and there inside and outside of her house, so I thought this would be a fun page for her.
