Sunday Stamper:213 Dreamer.

Well I am watching the tennis and trying to keep the dream alive, go it Murray! By the time anyone reads this the result will be known. I am trying not to bite my nails and have sat finishing off my entry for the Sunday Stamper instead, so far nails still intact!
I have been playing with my Dylusion inks again and making a stencilled background and then lifting some off with water spray, great fun. I have gone against all rules of composition here and placed the flower in the lower middle, but I quite like the quirkiness of it, so here is my dream, start a new trend perhaps? (chuckle).
Sunday Stamper
After I had stamped the background with distress inks on Studio 490 art stamps I then made a Dylusion background and stencilled and layered. The lady on the side is a paperartsy hot pick and I coloured and stamped a small wooden heart. Also to make the whole thing pop I used black archival on another Studio 490 foliage art stamp. The flower is made from paper from my stash onto first white art then moulded and then a Studio 490 flower on clearly for art on top. Then the centre was covered in Bedazzles, I love the way it is so shiny and firm using clearly for art. The photo corners I have had for years so I distressed them with matching ink and then added a Tim idea-ology tag - Dream as if you'll live forever - on top with some burnt orange glitter yarn.
I think using Dylusion inks and stencils gives depth to the background and looks dreamy -- as if you could lose yourself inside? I hope you think so anyway.
Back to the tennis, an awesome game! Hope you are all having a lovely Sunday. Hugs to all x
