Dylusions Paint Card

I spent a few hours playing at The Artistic Stamper, needless to say I had a Brilliant time. While I was there Jennie introduced me to the new Ranger/Dyan Reaveley Dylusion paints. They are brilliant, the colours and consistency are just WOW, every time I open a pot I just want to stick my fingers in (weird I know), and they are just so easy to clean off stamps.

I used Fresh Lime, Vibrant Turquoise and Crushed Grape, on plain white card stock and stamped with Artistic stamper stamps over the top with the same colours and White linen.

I stamped a Donna Downey flower stamp several times on book pages, cut them out and layered them up using foam tape. I then adhered them to the card and hand drew the steams on and doodled a boarder around the edges to finish it off.

Card stock album

I have slowly been working on this project for what feels like weeks. This album is inspired by Catherine Chapdelaine and measures 21cm by 21cm. The pages are all constructed using card stock,which is not something I normally do.

I kept the cover very simple and neutral, decorating it with cut outs from the paper packs I used and some flowers I constructed using scraps of left over paper. Then I attached a few charms to dangle down the spine. 

 I used papers from craft work cards and Hunkydory to decorated the pages. Unfortunately I can not remember the names of the packs but I really liked the patterns on the papers and the colours. There are so many flaps, pockets and spaces for pictures and notes in this album I think it will look lovely once filled up.
