To my wonderful Wife ...

There's a new monthly challenge beginning over on the Win & Tonic Challenge blog and you can choose from four different themes ... all themes very achievable and ... there is a wonderful prize too!

I have gone for the following themes:
Colour = kraft plus anything
Products = any (I used a wide range of Tonic Studio products)
Theme = happy anything

So here's what I came up with for this months challenge ...


I began by stamping out my images and embossing with Nuvo white embossing powder. All the images were then coloured with Nuvo Aquaflow pens and I carried on colour to create the background too.


Using the Affections base Heart Vines dies, I only cut away the outer edges and then added the painted topper to the card front, cutting away one edge, (on the card base), to keep the heart shape.



I also used the same dies to decorate the inside of my card. I also stamped around the edges, embossed and water coloured the images.


I thoroughly enjoyed making my card and must admit, will try this technique again but with other shaped dies I have in my collection ... ooohhhh, the results are endless.

Need to catch up with my blog as it has been a bit neglected recently due to illness (mine) and various family events etc, so watch this space as I do have quite a few things to share with you.

Hope to see you over at the challenge this month and can't wait to see what you create,

Lou
