A pop of colour

Good morning everyone, sharing another card with you today from the stunning pretty posies die sets from Tonic Studios ,launched last night on Hochanda, Jodie has a show at 1 & 4pm today and of course if you missed last night shows from 6 & 8pm you can watch those on rewind on Hochandas web site.

Materials used:-
Pretty posies -  you brighten my day
White Nuvo drops
Nuvo shimmer powders - Catherine Wheel- solar flare-cherry bomb
Cheap hair spray
Craft perfect Bright White
Craft perfect raspberry
White 3oogsm  card base

The card base is made from A3 card and measures 7"x 5" with mat and layers , the top card stock has been coloured with the gorgeous Nuvo shimmer powders with a real wow!! Of colour added I started off with a piece of water colour card and lightly stayed with a water mister bottle not soaked it just a light spray then gently tap the colours where you want them  and you will see the colour spread ,to spread the colour further spray a little more water and then heat dry with a heat gun if you want more colour you can repeat and then dry once dry spray over the card from a little distance some cheap hair spray all over the card this will  help to seal the colour otherwise the colour transfers a little. Now your ready to cut the detail die  over to the right hand side of the card so it hangs off the edge and not central, this layer is added to the card with 3mm foam pads so you get that depth and dimension through the die cut.
Now you can add all the other die cuts to the card again adding more dimension by adding foam pads ,the corners have just been snipped with scissors to create decoration  and to finish the card white Nivo drops were added. A very simple card but with a real pop of of colour.

Thank you for visiting my blog today

The first album I would like to share with you  is Christmas themed I know Christmas, but thinking ahead what a fantastic way of keeping those treasured memories past or present for gifts or yourself to pass down through the family. I think it's so important to put photos in albums with as much journaling as you can ,my husband and I have many photos  in our loft and nobody to ask who these picture's  are as there are no dates or names on the back of the photos and all my husband's side have passed away so i think this is so important.
