October Dylusions Facebook Challenge

Morning all. 

There is a new challenge up on the facebook challenge page. 
This month is Pink, Brown and Bunting.
Here is my creation.

The background is Dylusions inks Funky Fushia, Bubblegum Pink and Melted Chocolate. The ghosting is using the small Diamonds stencil.

Stamps: Bags of Bunting, Always, These Boots Are and The Eyes Have it.

I used the journal block around the outside and used Dylusions black paint to colour it in. Once it had dried I used the Dylusions White paint pen to doodle around inside the black area. 
The writing is freehand using the Dylusions black paint pen. 

I used a combination of copics and promarker pens to colour the images in. 

Thank you for stopping by.

Dylusions New Releases - Christmas Stamp/Stencil Set.

Afternoon everyone.

Last week Dyan launched 2 new Christmas releases, 
Colouring sheets and a new stamp/stencil set.

Here are some of the things I created with the stamp/stencil set. (I will be back tomorrow with the colouring sheets creations) 

This is from a concertina book I am creating. The backgrounds are created with inks (bubblegum pink and crushed grape) and Dylusions paints (Lime Green, Cut Grass and Dirty martini). I used the stencil that comes with set to do the background on the green pages and also the Merry Christmas up the side of 2 of the pages is part of the set. 

I then added the stamped images from the set and coloured them with Dylusions inks. 

This is a page in my Dylusions square journal using some of the new stamp set in combination with a few other Dylusions stamps. 

I hope you like them, I certainly had fun creating with them. 
How super cute is that Robin too? Love him. 

Thank you for stopping by. 

Art From The Heart will be stocking the new stamp/stencil set as soon as they clear customs. Hopefully the end of the week.
