Inking Dylusions


Grá O'Neill - Paper Learning Curve - Dylusions Cat Among the Pigeons, Lawn Fawn Year Two; THMS070; Dylusions Large Arrow Border; Finnabair Stars, Dots&Stripes; Ranger Archival & distress ink

Local Craft Clubs are a great way to give yourself the time, opportunity and encouragement to get crafty. One of the girls was in a Dylusions mood, so I tried to put into practice what I had learned from Dyan Reaveley. However as our time was nearly up and the raffle was ongoing I rushed it a bit. Making the best of it, I decided my arrows were meant to be in the foreground and the thicker than required application of distress paint through the stencil was the desired effect. 

I started this background in the same way as my last project, but then hand splattered some water and with a splatter brush straight from the bottle some Dylusions white linen ink. I stamped the Cat and Pigeons in jet black archival ink and watercoloured with distress crayons. In order to get truer colours, I removed some of the background ink with a waterbrush first. 

When I got home I finished by doodling with a white paint pen and a black ink pen and edged the card with distress crayon and distress ink. Never one to know when to stop, I felt the card needed something else so stencilled stars with hickory smoke distress ink.

Another fun inky time was had, but I did have some cleaning up to do. Thankfully the inks and paints were all water based so a quick wipe and the club didn't lose their damage deposit!

Happy Inking!
