Hey lovelies, I hope you are all well ? I am very excited to be taking part in Tonic Studios Winter Wishes Release party.
This awesome release has some gorgeous stamp sets. You can check the release out by heading on over to the Tonic website – Uk / US and whilst you are there use TRACY10 for 10% off your order (This is not an affilate link or code).
I adored the stamp set I worked with called Cocoa Wishes, it has lots of elements, and the sentiments are perfect Autumn/winter themed and not just for the holidays which for me is awesome.
I started off by stamping the two main images from the stamp set onto some white card using Nuvo Hybrid Ink pad in black and then fussy cut them both out and set them aside whilst I worked on the backgrounds.
For them I trimmed down some card and used an older Tonic stencil along with Glimmer paste in Golden Crystal and Garnet Red. I wanted to do an ombre type effect and switched which way round I did this on each piece of card. Once I was happy I cleaned the stencil straight away (this dries quite quickly) and put the card to one side to dry.
I then used alcohol markers to colour each image. On the girl I decided to add some eyeshadow and well it just had to be glitter 🙂 so I used the Glimmer paste in Golden Crystal and dabbed some onto her eyelids.
Once the backgrounds were dry I used the same Nuvo Hybrid Ink pad and stamped the sentiments on each card, I was surprised how well it stamped over the Glimmer Paste 🙂
I then added some foam tape to the back of each image and adhered them to the main piece.
I then created 5.5 x 41/4 Kraft card bases and adhered both the panels to them and decided they still needed something. I used Nuvo Glitter Drops in Honey Gold and Ruby Slippers and went a bit crazy, but I like how they turned out. I also added some white gel pen details to the images to finish both cards off.
I totally love this release and the projects everyone has created are amazing !
Now it wouldn’t be a fun party without some prizes would it ? So make sure you head on over to the Tonic Studios Blog for all the fun and info.
