I've never experimented with the black Dylusions spray, as it's quite dark & I tend to be heavy handed with my spritz technique. Decided to mix up a bit with the white linen; added in some Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Tinsel (more opaque than the Dylusions) to create a lighter silvery shade. In another bottle - just plain water with the black dylusions. Set about spraying 90# Strathmore Mixed Media paper with the sprays, not a clue as to what it would look like. After laying down the blacks, spritzed with Color Shine Chartreuse (which looks more gold than greenish to my eyes). Liked it so far - a bit different from my usual pastels or brights. After it dried a bit spritzed on some Tattered Angels Candy Apple Red. I've had the Tattered Angels and some other sprays for a while, but never really got good results with them, until I begin playing with the Dylusions. Oh yes, I do wear gloves, and I've plenty of waste paper covering the work space as well. It is messy. The inks will wash off your hands, though it takes a wash or two (ask how I know this). I use the cheap white gloves boxed in 100 or 200 count - about $3 - $6.00 - wherever I find them inexpensively. Sometimes I can find them in the Dollar Store, but not always. These are thin enough that it's not clumsy to work with gloves on. I can't do anything wearing the Playtex heavier gloves made for household chores.
Here's what resulted:
- Memory Box Twirled Heart die(98279), which yielded a thin outline and used the pop out hearts on the corner. This red paper has a velvety texture & came from JoAnn. The die cut extremely well, but I did give it a couple of passes in the Big Shot to ensure it cut cleanly.
- Penny Black Love die (there's 4 in the package and it's really a set of Christmas sentiments). This also cut very well, but again, a couple of passes.
That's it! A little different look for me, no copics, no stamps, and I'm not quite sure how I feel about this one. DH wasn't either. His usual comment when he doesn't really like my card is "well, it doesn't look like You". So I guess this won't be _his_ Valentine! I've a pretty sentiment stamp that I got at Sparkle n Sprinkle over Christmas - nice verse I mean - so that will go inside.
Thanks for your visit, have a wonderful rest of the evening, and HAPPY WEEKEND! Hugs.
