Good morning everyone, today I would like to share a card with you from Tonic Studios brand new Silhouette die sets launched last night on Hochanda with lots of shows for today although stock is flying out, I am not surprised as they are fabulous dies and something a little different.





Materials needed to create this card:-
Twisting Veranda layering Die set
Will's hand sentiment set -Dream
Craft perfect - Teal Blue
Craft Perfect Jet Black
Basic square layering die sets
Base cardstock black 300gsm
White stamping card stock
Nuvo Aqua Flow Pens
Nuvo Alcohol markers
Nuvo shimmer pen
Nuvo Deluxe glue
Nuvo crystal drops - White
Silhouette Die set - Hibiscus sunset


These are the 3 different Silhouette dies in the collection.




The card base is made cutting two of the outside edge from the Twisting Veranda die and then putting a score line in the top half of the card about 1" deep right across the card and then placing wet deluxe Nuvo glue onto the tab and then place the front section of the card to this it will give you a few seconds to grab but it's a very good strong adhesive. Then you need to cut the same die again in craft perfect Teal cardstock and cut into this layer with the next size down with the detail Die this is then glued to the front of your card base.
The Hibiscus Sunset is cut out of Jet Black craft perfect cardstock and placed on a piece of white stamping card this layer was cut using the basic square layering die sets making sure you have a lovely white border and then you need to cut another layer in jet black so that once it has been coloured it can be fixed to the card using 3D foam pads.
Once the black die cut is stuck to the stamping card it's time to start colouring I must admit I have used both Aqua flows and Nuvo Alcohol pens with this card.
I started out with the Ocean
I placed the darker blue on my glass cutting mat and picked up the colour with a water brush going from dark to light once this section was coloured I went over the blue ocean part with the Aqua shimmer pen. I then worked my way up the scene with a strong orange Alcohol pen and then gradually went with lighter orange tones and blended them in. All the green foliage and flowers were coloured with Nuvo Alcohol pens with the flowers having a touch of shimmer pen added.

Then to finish off the card a sentiment was added from Will's Hand Sentiments -Dream and then white nuvo drops added just to finish.


Thank you for taking the time to read my blog post today, be sure to pop back over today and tomorrow as I have plenty more samples to share with you from this launch.
