Dorrie's challange was to complete a project using the distress paint for the blog, as some of you know she calls herself the background queen and so far we only have backgrounds(lots of backgrounds on all sorts of surfaces) When I have rained her in to complete a project I will insert a photo. No body hold your breath she doesn't like to work to dead lines and currently she has just opened a new journal and is busily spraying Dylusions and spreading and dabbing and smooshing Distress paint Oh no here comes the heat gun.
My challenge was to complete a project with the new Dylusions colours. You have to love them just for their names, but they are also a great product. The new colours are Calypso Teal. White Linen, Dirty Martini(my favourite), Funky Fuchsia, Cherry Pie and After Midnight.
I made a couple of tags with a fashion theme. The background started off with a spritz of Dylusions ink sprays in the new colours except White Linen, which I added as a second layer sprayed through a piece of sequin waste. I added a couple of other back ground layers with paint and pens and adorned with the ladies cut with a Cricut using the Forever Young cartridge. The 1st was painted with Calypso Teal. The other has a dress painted in Bubblegum Pink one of the original colours. A few words a bit of ribbon and a couple of embellishments and voila a couple of simple but funky tags.
All the colours of both products are still currently available in the shop so call in an get them while they last. Alternatively give us a ring and we will be happy to post them to you.
