Gradient color effect using Dylusions Paint

img_3167

Hi everyone! I had fun creating this tag/bookmark. I love how the background colors blend together. The tag is from Tim Holtz Alterations tag collection from Sizzix (2 3/8in x 4 3/4in). I used dylusions paints from Ranger ink for the background and splatter some black, white, blue, red, and yellow acrylic paints to add interest. Dylusions paint are blendable and dries quickly to a matte finish which I like and the fun part is using my fingers to blend the colors. Instead of smoke coming out from the chimney I stenciled star shapes using texture paste and used my kids star stencil. For the house, I used textured cardstock and applied acrylic paint and stenciled it with texture paste using Tim Holtz layering stencil. I also added sentiment stickers from Tim Holtz idea-ology. For the final touch I outlined the house, stars, and sentiments to make the whole thing pop. I hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by.

It took me almost a week to get this done because I can’t get the background color to come out right. Continue reading “Tea Cups Canvas with Dylusions Paints + Acrylic Paints + Distress Inks”
