The project I am sharing today is one of those moments. Without thinking, I knew I wanted to include die cutting and also how I wanted them to work with my stamping ...
I have used the NEW rubber stamps from Tonic Studios called Delicate Detail with the Mandala Moments stamps & dies to create my card. I was even brave and used one of the framed screen dies to create a background and then die cut it again in to a heart shape ... that was brave for me as not sure if it would work and sometimes when an idea doesn't appear as my head envisaged, I can stop making the project altogether.
I began by taking the Vintage Tag stamp and by only inking the upper parts, I created a frame around my base card. Next using my Nuvo watercolour pens, I loosely coloured the background, (using black and Soft Rose). I die cut a decorative panel with the Curved Crosses framed screen die and then with a heart shape (using layering heart dies). This was placed in to the centre.
Using the Vintage Flourish stamp, I stamped the heart shape and coloured with Soft Rose, cutting it out. I stamped the LOVE from the Mandala Moments set in grey, die cut with matching die and mounted the two.
As a finishing touch and to add more colour, I stamped the Vine Flourish twice, colouring with Fresh Green and cut them out. I layered these behind the LOVE. The smaller flowers are the waste from the heart (Curved Crosses framed screen) with a Nuvo crystal drop added to the centre.
Phew, think that's everything and if you get a chance, check out the Tonic Studios Pinterest page (HERE and HERE) to get lots more inspiration from the Tonic DT.
