Hi and welcome to the blog today.
Did you know Tonic were having a Take Over day on Ideal World and Create & Craft?
Hels and Jodie are introducing the new Aqua Flow pens, and Rounded Strip dies with lots of inspiration and demos throughout the day on the two channels. 

Here are the Aqua Flow cards I had the opportunity to make for the shows.
They are brilliant for all those fab smooshed backgrounds, for stamping and all the watercolour techniques you know and love.

I hope you enjoy the selection today.





Also, brand new to the Tonic Craft Perfect range are these fabulous foiled cards and sentiments. Use your Aqua Flow pens to create a sea of colour or just highlight areas - the choice is yours.






I've used glitter on the sentiment but unfortunately the camera refused to pick it up.
I coloured in the front of one of the 5 x 7" (120 x 180 mm) card fronts, backed it with a layer coloured with the Red Apple pen and some silver mirror card and placed it on the 6 x 6" card blank.
I didn't have as much time to play with these as I would have liked (thanks to Royal Mail), but even something as simple as this makes a striking card and is quick and easy to do.

Thank you for joining me today.
