WOYWW- JOFY cards and Dylusions backgrounds!

Hi Everyone

Thanks for stopping by this week, I have been playing with my Inkylicious and JOFY flower stamps with a view to making some cards. I even got out my Dylusion Inks to try (again) to make some decent backgrounds. Here is my desk….

 Here is the JOFY card I made for my oldest friend Debbie, who's birthday is this week.  (Friends for 40 years!)
I am so pleased with the way this turned out, I used DI inks for the background and also used a flower stencil for a bit of depth.  I stamped the flowers straight on to scrapbook paper and layered them up. I stamped the long image along the bottom and added a few hand drawn elements to make it fit right across the card. The mushroom and little funny pods at the bottom have also been stamped again onto paper and added on top. I will definitely be making more of these….

I have also been experimenting again with my Dylusion ink sprays to create some small backgrounds for cards...

I used a CLARITY stencil to add interest... 

 I've only had time to finish this one which has yet to be made in to a card.. but you get the idea!

Another on the same theme… I used a white pen to add a bit of moonshine. (Sorry about the shadow!) 

Well… that's about it from me. Ali and I are so looking forward to meeting some of you at the WOYWW 5th anniversary crop on Saturday, can't wait!!!  Click on the WOYWW button on the right to find out more...

Have a happy week
