Dylusions Background card with video tutorial
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Make Your Own Background". We are also showcasing Dylusions products this week. If you have any we would like to see them used in your project.

This time one time a project without Infusions, but Dylusions. It sounds almost the same but it really isn't. I started to apply washi tape to build up the background. On top I applied a layer of Opal Magic Rose Gold paint. For more texture, I applied  Texture Paste with a stencil. When it was dry, I started working with Dylusions Paint and baby wipes. The Metallique Emerald Green paint really changed the color tremendously.

The next step was Dylusions Spray, Vibrant Turquoise and Squeezed Orange. But the colors weren't a great mix, they turned into a muddy color. But I continued by coloring the Scribbly Bird (thanks, Cathie!) With different colors of Distress Reinkers and a water brush.


I was almost about to start over again. So I gave it a try with an extra spray of Vibrant Turquoise, and well, that gave me a very nice effect! The Squeezed Orange underneath gave me a kind of dark purple indigo hue. Pfeww project saved, LOL!

This is so absolutely pretty! I love how the dark blues pair with the yellow birdie! And this project single-handedly made me add some of those clear droplets to my cart!

Melfina said...

What a lovely card!!! The coloring is absolutely amazing and the texture too! I also love this birdie and before watching your video I was wondering if this size is good for cards or if I should buy the set with the smaller one.

I really love this! The pop of the golden glowing bird against that stunning shadowy background is wonderful.
