I am .....

"I am .... perfect just the way I am"   Don't you just love the quote stamps from Dylusions?  They are such fun although at the moment I only own one set of quotes, so I think I might need to remedy that soon as I know there is a new set out and they will be so useful on both cards and journalling.

The Stampotique challenge last week was "text"  so I got creating using "Gibi" as my focal point having first stamped her onto some text paper from Kaisercraft.  At first I decided to go with a natural look and highlight just her shirt, but somehow it didn't look right, so I ended up colouring her completely using Dylusion inks.   I then popped her up on dimensionals. 

The tag was first spritzed with water before puddles of colour were added.  The second tag was used to mop up the excess ink and will be used for another project.

Unfortunately I ended up being too late to enter this challenge ...... oh well, I had lots of fun playing and am happy with how the finished tag looks.  The next challenge is "triangles" so perhaps I'll play along with this instead.

It's a very wet day in Sydney today, perfect crafting weather.

Happy crafting!


  1. It might be a wet day but your tags are like a burst of sunshine with those fabulous colours Helen! Vicky x

  2. Such fab bright tags! Thanks for your comment on my blog today x

  3. Brilliant tag Helen! Thanks for joining in with us at Stampotique.

  4. Helen, there is nothing I don't like about Dylusions (is that a double negative?), and nothing I don't like about the tag you have created with them. I am lucky enough to have all 18 of Dyan's inks!


Any messages (so long as they are positive [hehehe!] ) gratefully received!
