Good morning and welcome to my blog ,today I am sharing a couple of cards with you created for the brand new release of colours from Tonic Studios Nuvo drops. I luv Nuvo drops they just finish a card for me and add highlights to flowers ect so versatile .
Nuvo Crystal drops - metalic - Auburn Pearl
Nuvo Crystal drops- metalic-Caramel Cream
Victorian layering die set
Twisting Leaves - dot and drops
Dots and drops flourish
Craft perfect ivory
Craft perfect Black
Craft perfect copper pearlecent
Base card cream 3oogsm
The card blank is created cutting two of the largest dies in the set and placing a score line across the back piece of card about 1inch in depth then attatching the front of the card to the tab you created then it's a matter of cutting all you mat and layers, the top layer is cut using the ever so pretty twisting leaves dot and drops die set when you glue this piece of card stock to your card make sure you have wet glue in between the detail underneith as once you add the drops in can buckle as the drops are moist if it's glued flat it will be perfect. Then carefully add the Nuvo drops if your not confident or have a shaky hand just add drops to every other dot and then when dry go in with another colour and add the remaining drops. You will then need to die cut the celebrate sentiment in ivory craft perfect and also the gorgeous pearlecent copper craft perfect slightly off set to create depth & dimension to your card .To finish the card add a matching bow and a small flower.

The card was created cutting two of the largest dies in the set and placing a score line across the back panel and adhere the front panel to the back then add the mat and layers, the back panel has some random stamping around the edge of the card & coloured with the Brand new colours in the Alcohol markers.
Then the image was stamped using the Tim Holtz stamping platform and the Nuvo Black shadow ink pad and then the sentiment was added with the Nuvo Empire blue ink pad. The image was is coloured with the New shades in the Nuvo Alcohol pens to get the depth I wanted I started with the lightest shade then go in with the darkest shade where you would expect to see shadow and then blend that dark line out with the mid tone it works for me but we all have our different ways of colouring. The drops were placed around the edge with both the Blue Babe and the Double Denim shade and to finish a matching blue organza ribbon was added with a spiral flower from the kaleidoscope box die set.
