Homage to Edna ... Henri style ...

Tonic Tuesday Takeover ... part 4

Another 'Tonic Tuesday Takeover' make to share and I have to give a big shout out to Edna Taylor from the Tonic Studios design team. A while back I saw a card Edna made using the Rococo Male dies and adored the layout and colour palate, so had to use this as my inspiration for my card. Check out Edna's card HERE 

Here's my take on her card using Henri from Marmalade's World ...


I think the simple layered squares make each of the images 'pop' whether a die or a stamp and thought Henri would look great nestled in amongst the sports themed dies. Using Rustic Oak Aqua Flow pen as my ink, I stamped Henri. Whilst the colour was still wet, I coloured him in to give a vintage feel.



As my only embellishment, I stamped the rosette from Accessory Set 3 with the same colour as Henri and die cut with the matching die. A simple layered card, which I think look striking.

Many thanks Edna for providing the inspiration for my design,

Lou

Legacy Keep Dies from Tonic Studios to make an album page.

Hi everyone. Have you been enjoying Tonic Studios 17th birthday celebrations on Hochanda? Oh my goodness, so many wonderful die collections and Nuvo products to choose from, each as much fun to 'play' with ... oh yes they are, trust me 😏😍😉 This weekend, Jodie is launching a set of dies called 'Legacy Keeper' which are part of the Memory Book range. For my first project share using these dies, I have used them to create an album page for this album - made using Memory Book 2  ...   The front is decorated with the new Treasured Tome A4 embossing folder creating an embossed acetate layer on top. Gotta go off topic here and say did you see Jodie & Janice trying to pronounce the embossing folders name? So very funny ...! Okay, back to the album ... I often create an acetate layer to act as a protective cover to the front of my albums especially if you have a photograph on the front.

On Wednesday, Jodie Johnson launched the new Life's Journey Keepsake Collection of dies from Tonic Studios on Create & Craft, which compliment the existing memory book dies. It was a huge success and sold out within the hour! I was very lucky and managed to play with the dies making samples for the show - well it was meant to be shows. For one of my samples I made a travel journal themed album with a male slant ...
