Tonic Studios January Release and Blog Hop

Hello friends!! Today I’m joining Tonic Studio’s to celebrate their January release of the awesome Backgrounds and Borders Bundle!!

This set was so fun to play with and the possibilities are truly endless!! I decided to try creating some backgrounds and with heat embossing and watercolors!

To create these cards I first stamped a border stamp several times over a panel of Bristol paper in Versamark ink and then embossed with gold embossing powder.

I then watercolored the panels with Tombow Dual Brush Pens. Next, I die cut my sentiments out of white cardstock and then trimmed them down to a strip.

Lastly, I adhered the panels and the sentiments to the front of A2 top-folding white card bases with foam adhesive.

  3. Hugs friend is amazing, such balanced and calming despite being so colorful! The golden accents make the colors pop out so well.

  4. Very cool diagonal water coloring with the gold embossing! Receiving this would be bright & cheerful for the receiver. Tonic did a wonderful job with this set.
