Bold, bright and colourful

At the recent Scrapbooking Expo in Brisbane I did a class using the Lindy's Stamp Gang and Dylusions sprays.  Our teacher was the extremely talented Kate Palmer Sparkle Tart. Kate has loads of great videos on youtube, showing a range of so many wonderful techniques, definitely worth a visit or 10.  I had a ball in the class and got very messy.  The background to the card below was one of the techniques using the Dylusion sprays, making a watermark using a stencil, stamping and "bleaching" the dyes using water.  The cute mushrooms on the background are Dyan Reaveley "Dylusions" stamps.  The little fairy and the lady(or man in this case)beetle are both Crafty Secrets and coloured with copics.  The snail is Inkadinkado and was stamped by colouring Marvy markers directly on the stamp, huffing and stamping. I absolutely love the bright clear colours the dylusions give, they're gorgeous.
