Here's one of my projects and I have used both products to create a mixed media feel tag ...
I want to also use the Craft Perfect 216gsm card to show that it could too be used in a mixed media project where we would be using lots of different products. The card does curl when drying but if you take your heat gun and quickly blast it on the back, it soon straightens out the card. For this project I have used the Jet Black card. I began by using the Cherry Bomb and Violet Brocade shimmer powders and covered the card, spritzing with water. As I was a little impatient, I did dry this layer with my heat gun.
Using a piece of card from a cereal box, I die cut the Rose Petal design from the recently launched gift bag, spraying with Antique Gold Mica Mist, covering the whole of the tag. It created a wonderful pattern with depth. Once dry, using the Celestia Wings butterfly die, was cut from the top of the tag.
On another piece of black card - measuring slightly smaller than the original tag - I die cut another Celestia Butterfly making sure it lined up with the the original cut. I then stuck this to the back of the main tag, leaving a shadow. Finally, both were stuck to a larger tag from Cinnamon Silk craft perfect speciality card.
next I layered the 2 wings on top of each other, added a body and antennae, filling in the body with Moroccan red Nuvo Crystal Drops.
I created another background the same as the tag and from it I cut various frames using a mixture of the ATC dies. I even cut out the zig-zag bits from one of the panels for added texture. As a finishing touch, I die cut the Inspire 3 times layering on top of each other. This was stuck to a Cinnamon Silk panel.
I added extra sequins to lift the colour and to match the original shimmer powder tones, added some metal embellishments and finally, ribbons at the top. Must say am loving the 'vibe' from my tag and would be great to see it in a different colour way. Yep, another thing to add to my 'to do' list and fingers crossed, I'll get the time to complete the list.
I've recorded all the shows for Monday, as am a busy bee on taxi duties but will catch up with all the fun in the evening. So come on, do share. what's been your favourite Tonic Studios anniversary product so far?The nosy crafters gene is dying to know ...,
