Can't believe we're here at the end (?) of my week of New Dylusions marathon. As I sit writing this up for Monday, I'm watching my Baltimore Ravens play in the Super Bowl! Now, I'm not *really* that huge a football fan, but when the home team is in the Super Bowl, you gotta get excited! But I digress...
The last *tag* of our marathon is another in the "trash-to-treasure" style. Another brayer cleaned up on newsprint for the background...
Ain't she (he?) adorable? I'm undecided on its gender... initially I thought it was a "he", but then it also looks like it is wearing a housedress... so.. maybe a girl? What do you think??? Anyway... with the background instantly done with the newsprint, I added some borders with my hand-carved stamps.
On the left I stamped my triangle stamp at various heights all the way down the day in black archival ink, and then went over all the different sections with paint pens, black, white and red, plus some access with white gelly roll pen, and some dots around the triangles (not sure I'm in love with the dots, but... ) And around the rest of the tag I used one of my stripey border stamps. I stamped with Lumiere green metallic paint, and then outlined with a fine line of black, and a fine line of white to get the level of contrast I wanted.
And now for our main feature... I'm gonna go with the masculine approach and say he's wearing a lab coat, like he's a mad scientist (or Uncle Fester? LOL!). Colored the lab coat in with funky fuchsia and a water brush, calypso teal for his legs and eyes, and cut grass for his boots.
Any mad scientist needs supervision, but this one's been left on his own...who knows what could happen! Sentiment is perfect for a monster tag.
And there we have it! I'm a little sad that our New Dylusions tag marathon has come to an end, but as I mentioned yesterday... I've been playing this weekend and I've found a new (for me) way to use some of the new Dylusions stamps, so I'll be back again tomorrow for Day #8!
Here's a recap and links to the last 6 tags... (I'll do this again, tomorrow, too.)
Thanks to everyone who's stopped by, left a comment, to those who became new followers along the way, and a special huge thanks to the Queen of Dylusions herself, Dyan Reaveley! I feel so fortunate to be a part of Dyan's Design Team, and couldn't be happier to play with all her unique and wonderful creations. I hope you've enjoyed the last week and have found some fun ways to use Dylusions in your own art.
See you tomorrow! GO RAVENS!!!
