Here’s One I Made – Owl be happy with that

I have always enjoyed playing with craft kits, so when I heard that Tonic Studios were bringing out a new monthly kit with limited edition stamps and dies, it seemed rude not to have a play with it.

At the heart of this project was also the next in May Flaum’s Paste and Gels class over at Big Picture Classes, where she was encouraging us to stamp into paste and then colour in with different mediums.

I like this effect, it adds texture to the stamps and I coloured it with watercolour and sparkles pens and the depth of paste ensures the colour doesn’t run between the sections.

I wanted to play with layers and use the mousse and the dies from the Tonic Kit. The top layer uses the die, the second layer uses a Tim Holtz die and the third layer has a big moon made from Tonic Gold Mousse.

It took me a while to get my head around the tonic mousse, having been given a couple of pots of it. But as I have got use to it, it’s so versatile, I use it as a paste, gilding wax and paint  for spritzing.

The card takes about 5 minutes to construct. I always make the middle layer about half an inch smaller than the sides so that it fits in the folded sides more easily than it would othewise.
