Trio of Dyan cards with video tutorial
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Trio of Something". And we're showcasing Dyan Reavely (Dylusions) products also! If you have some, great! If not it's okay too!

This week I went crazy with bright colors and I cut up an H&M catalog for these three cards. All three cards were made with the same products, all patterns out of the magazine are the same. I started to tear out patterns and a full text. Often they use great words and lines that you can use for your cards or other projects.


After I glued it all down with Mod Podge, I started working with Gesso and Dylusions Paint. With my finger I mixed and blended all the colors together. Dylusions Paint stays wet a bit longer so you can blend your colors better. To give the colors more depth, I used 3 different colors of Infusions. For the contrast I used Distress Crayon on the edges, this makes the bright colors even brighter.



With Texture Paste and Black Soot Distress Paint I used a Dylusions Stencil to apply texture and even more contrast. And as a third Dylusions product I used Dylusions Spray, as black spatters, but also to tint the Paper Doll.

Oh my! This is a real explosion! What a colorfulness! Love the messy way of building background and the result you got, that was brave! Great idea of using catalogue scraps for background and I will be searching some cool sentiments now too in the catalogues I have :-) Love the set, its vibrancy and originality! Hugs, Marzena

FAVORITE PROJECT OF YOURS EVER!!! Yep! Despite all of the other projects you've done that have also been my favorites, these have to be the top of the list. These are fabulous and I am in love with the way you used bright colors with the Infusions. I was so intrigued with these cards that I snuck away from my desk at work just so I could watch your video! I always love to see your process, especially for these gems. Excellent work here and I would buy these as wallpaper if I could!
