I made this background a while back while showing my mom the Dylusions Ink Sprays and a stencil. I misted turquoise, blue, lime green, and orange and let them blend then dry.
Once dry, I sprayed hot pink through the stencil which made purple on the blue part of the card. I also used water for a ghosting technique and then covered the whole thing with Perfect Pearls Mist.
I stamped the house and sentiment on another misted background I had done and cut out all the pieces. With the house, I cut each layer of the roof apart and cut open the door on one side. When I pieced it all back together again, I only glued the tops of each roof piece and then bent them out for dimension. I also let the door swing open.
The stars were simply painted with gold Twinkling H2O’s and adhered.
I love these painty, blendy looking backgrounds and Dylusions mix to make the most amazing colours! I love the “shingles” on the roof too – fun, fun!
See you tomorrow for a few more!

I am glad I left Flickr to check this out on your blog or I would have missed the roof tiles. Blimmen heck. Stunning.
Thanks Natasha! I’m glad you like it so much, your comment made me laugh! 🙂
I’m in love with those sprays too. Haven’t used them as much as I like, but you gave me some inspiration to do so. Are those stamps by Dylan too?
They are beautiful, hey? The stamps are Dyan Reaveley as well, the Dylusions line by Stamper’s Anonymous, distributed by Ranger. Those two were the Say What You Mean and Right Up Your Street sets.
