LWD Design Team Showcase: Under the Sea with Dylusions Stamps

Good morning everyone!  This is my first post for Lone Wolf Designs and I thought I’d share something fun.  I have fallen in love with all things Dylusions so today I’m going to showcase some of the stamps.


Nice, bright, cheerful and oh so much fun to create.  Ready?  Okay, grab your ink pads and your stamps and let’s get this party started!


I began with a #8 tag.  Using a blending tool, I applied Tumbled Glass and Faded Jeans Distress Inks as the background, blending as I went.


Next, I stamped the Seaweed stamp from Dylusions Ocean Backgrounds stamp set using Ranger Black Archival Ink.  I then traced with stamped image with a Distress Ink Marker in Black Soot and colored in the image with Pine Needles.  I followed it up by going over the entire colored image with a waterbrush to give it a slight water-color effect.


Then, I stamped the fish and octopus from Dylusions Under the Sea stamp set in Black Soot Distress Ink onto a manila tag.  I colored both images with Prismacolor markers in primary colors (fun!).

Okay, now I got sooooo into this fun tag that I forgot to take my progress pictures (face-palm).  So here’s what I did to finish the tag:  I stamped the Currently Unsupervised sentiment from Dylusions Say How It Is onto a manila tag and cut out.  I then pounced on some Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink.


I popped out the fish and octopus with foam squares and stamped some bubbles using the Dylusions Under The Sea bubble stamp and Broken China Distress Ink.

I smile every time I look at this tag. It that bright and cheerful.  Of course the sentiment just makes it that much funnier!
