Stencilled Ombre' Tonic Wishes Duo


Almost time to wish everyone a Happy New Year!  I made a couple cards using Tonic Studios dies and stencils and Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer Paste and am happy to share how I achieved the glittery ombre' look. Here is a close up and some pictures of the process: 







I sponged on several colors of blue distress ink through the openings in Tonic's Splayed Feathers Stencil (1480e). After cleaning off the stencil, I applied Nuvo's Moonstone Glimmer Paste over the ombre' blues. The result is a beautiful sparkly textured accent for my New Year's card. I added some stars die cut out of silver mirror card with Tonic's Mini Wreath Decorations (1384e) and the year 2017 die cut from the Advent Treat Squeeze Box Die Set (621e). I also created a different kind of celebration card with the same technique:


I changed the alignment of my birthday card and added the Birthday Wishes Miniature Moments sentiment and some die cut and punched stars out of silver mirror card. 


I played around with some editing fun in PicMonkey which I just found and am loving for editing my pictures. What do you think? Does it look like a New Year's Eve celebration?

I am entering the first card in the Party Time challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday and the Anything Goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday.

Hope you have a healthy and happy 2017!
