UK Scrappers Blog Hop

Hi all, glad you could join us for the UKS blog hop. If you have arrived at me you should have hopped over from A Trip Down Memory Lane HERE

Here is my step by step. A journal page as usual


Materials

Dylusions paints... Tangerine, Cerise
Dylusions Spray inks... Bubblegum, Granite
Dylusions stamp sets... Further Round the Edge, Birds on a Wire, Bits and Bats
Jet Black Archival Ink
Black Posca pen
Sakura Gelly Roll pen

Method

Add the Dylusions paints to the page with a baby wipe


Spray 3 blobs of Dylusions Bubblegum ink onto the page and let it drip down.


Repeat with the Dylusions Granite ink


Ink up the leaf border stamp from Further round the edge and stamp at the top of the pages.


Ink up the spiders web stamp from Bits and Bats and stamp over the top


Stamp the bats and spiders from Bits and Bats


Stamp the birds and hats from Birds on a Wire. Draw 2 paper hats on old book page, cut out and stick onto the large crows.


Paint in the leaves with Dylusions Grape ink


Splatter and add rings with Dylusions Burnt Orange Mica Ink


Add highlights with the Gelly Roll pen. Write words with the black Posca pen, and go over the top with the white pen.


Hope you enjoyed  my page, and will have a go at creating one of your own.

Please go to the next Blog, The Artistic Stamper HERE

If you go HERE you can see the list of everyone taking part.

Please leave me a comment as we have a set of Dylusions stamps up for grabs.

Enjoy
