Lately I am into art journals and mixed media so I have lots of new inks, sprays, paints and stencils in the house. My new dylusions spray inks have been waiting patiently in my craft room to be used.
But who said all these products are just for art journal pages and tags?! Here is a card that I did applying many techniques I’ve learn from the amazing Dyan Reaveley.
Blue and white is my second favorite combination for winter/holiday cards just after the green/red combination. And check out that snowman! It’s from the Tim Holtz blueprint collection.
You can enjoy the how-to video below or at my YouTube channel.
If I am not too shy I might share this week the first page of my art journal. Guess what?! I even filmed the process…
LOVE this Christmas card Vicki..my favorite colour combo too, after red and green 🙂 I as well am loving mixed media lately and just purchased Dyan Reaveley’s big journal…but I am too nervous/afraid to start…SO I would LOVE to see your first page…please share your video!!!
You are SO BAD, Vicky! Now I want all this stuff! LOVE your card, my friend, thanks for the wonderful how-to!
Oh, Please don’t be shy, Vicky! I know we’d all love to see your art journal!
Love, love, love this inky card and I love that you got messy too!
Great card!! Loved your supervisor intervention LOL!! I was without internet for a while to today I am having a blast with the last videos. Hugs, Joan
I love the card.
I’m looking forward to your art journal. Don’t be shy. If it is anything like this card I’m going to like it!
You really know how to make these product SHINE!! Love seeing you playing with the new goodies! Amazing video as always!!!!!! LOVE your little helping hand! Hope to see more of Maria’s “guest appearances”!!
What an absolutely fantastic card. Love it….
Beautiful card. Loved the video. Please please share your art journal, you are so talented, and your videos are fun to watch.
I already had some of the needed supplies, just didn’t really know how to put them to good use. NOW I’ve learned from the Best!! I loved this Christmas card, especially the color scheme blue and turquoise etc. I enjoyed the way you put things together to come up with this WOW card.
Please share your journal as well, we all need each others support in venturing into new crafting “roads” and skills-so to speak.I am convinced it will be another Vicky hit!
Have a nice week and enjoy your new crafting materials.
Love Gisa from Germany
I thoroughly enjoyed watching your new technique Vicky..I love the snowman and fabulous background and finishing details, such a fun and gorgeous card..
It was great seeing you get all inky to make your fun background. Feel free to share more mixed media projects with us!
Vicky…I am amazed with this card…it is just a beautiful piece of art!!
Absolutely love this card. Can’t miss with Dylusions and Tim stamps. thanks as always for sharing.
I can wait to see your art journal page. The card looks fabulously wonderful!
Wow. Love how you combined everything. Great card.
Your card is gorgeous and I really enjoyed your video. Thanks for sharing your techniques – I learnt a lot!
Vicki, LOVE YOUR CARD. I’ve been playing with Dylusions stamps, sprays and inks. What fun they are. Dyan is the best. Keep on playing and getting your fingers inky.
That is so cute that your daughter helps you out and I would love to see your art journal.
Now I have to get some dylusions ink spray it will have to wait till my next pay check because I went and got a xbox with this check but only because it was fifty bucks off…..lol I have such an addictive personality stamping, scrapbooking, and now gaming, is there a twelves step program for any of those addictions…….lmao
By the way I love your card I think I am going to make some like that with my ranger mists.
Wow! Great card and great video! As I watched, I was thinking that looks like fun. I need to try this. 😉
I just happened on your video and loved this card. You make it look so fun and easy. TFS
So artsy and lots of fun, Vicky! This gave you such great depth of color – and probably a big, inky mess to clean up? So worth it – thanks for sharing.
That card is AMAZING! Your techniques are awesome, and I had so much fun just watching!
thanks for letting us see your “process” when you create these fabulous cards. I never fail to learn from you! your background was really amazing….I don’t have those spray dies, so I really liked learning about them through you. And those colors….WOW! I forget how powereful white is with rich blues/greens. Need to remember and use that tip! Thanks!
PS: looks like your daughter is a wonderful supervisor!
STUNNING card,…….LOVED the video so cool!
hi vicky great card!!! love the background.!!! I have a question … what was that white thing you used at the end (when you had already glued the background on your card ?? ) min10:34 ….
Sorry I forgot to put a link! That was “picket fence” distress stain by Ranger.
I’ve never played with those sprays before! Don’t even have them yet 🙂 I love all the technique layering on that background. It’s so gorgeous. The snowman is amazing too! Hi to the little one 🙂
Hi i like and follow your work
Specially your videos
Its so clear …
Thanks for sharing…
Wich kind of paper do you use for dillusion spray????
Thanks for sharing such an excellent how to video. Nicola x
Wonderful card! Love that background. Thanks for sharing!
The more I see what you do with the ranger products, I just may have to invest in them. A well done card look like it was a lot of fun to make too
I was wondering what is that clear brush-pen thing you use to pick up the sprayed ink from the working surface? Your videos have been something my kids enjoy daily after school to give ideas and to learn techniques. Thank you so much!!!
that is a water color brush with a barrel that holds it’s own water…. no need to dip the brush tip in the water. It’s amazing!!!
I’ll email you more details and links!
Thank you very much!!! Sounds like something I DEFINITELY need!!! =)
Love this card! I think I’ve watched all ur christmas card videos! And love all of them! This hac to be ONE ofmy favorites!! I’m new at car making, I use to craft a lot, more diy painting making things, but had to stop because od some back problems ( 5 surgerys on my neck) later! I decided to try scrapbooking & card making. I’ve had some problems getting started but ur videos r such inspiration for me! The only problem now is I’ve spent quit a bit of money on the basics, but every time I start to make something ifind I need something else! Any suggestions before my husband kills me? Lol!!! Thanks again for all u have taught me! Hope to hear any. Suggestions u might have!
