Arteza Gouache Paint :D

I think this has to be my new favourite Arteza product!! I adore this paint so much!! And have been playing around with it for the last 3 weeks, I just couldn't put my homemade palette down!! :D 

A lengthy video going through a few basics of Gouache, showing a Gouache Palette, a comparison between Gouache and Watercolour, some cool background techniques, how you can paint hand drawn images or stamped images too, and at the end I even paint a little cactus in real time with you :D Hope you like the video, sorry it's sooooo long, but I didn't want to leave anything out!! I have just been LOVING this paint soooo much, I really wanted to get across how versatile it is :D :D

Rainbow Trio with Tonic Craft Kit #24 :D

A trio of cards making use of the muted rainbow colour tones from the exclusive 6x6 paper pad from Kit #24 of the Tonic Craft Kit :D These cards are all pretty simple, focusing on the stamps from the Kit, using the paper pad as colour inspiration, and using other Nuvo products from my stash to match the colours too :D

This Rainbow Fever Paper Pad from Kit #24 has a beautiful muted rainbow colour palette, and so I thought I'd list the colours of Nuvo alcohol markers and Nuvo ink pads that coordinate to save you a bit of time :D There's photos right at the bottom of this blog post too :D :D
Alcohol Pens: 379, 387, 404, 417, 429, 436 and 461
Ink Pads: Rich Rosewood, Laguna Bay, Spring Heather, Dried Oregano, Amber Ochre, Powdered Peach and  Acorn Brown (this is a large ink pad, but we got a baby one in a kit a little while ago) :D

Hope you enjoyed this quick and simple cards, they're definitely more aimed towards those of you know love stamping :D :D

Tonic Craft Kit #24 Celebration Easel :D

This is the kind of card that this issue of the Tonic Craft Kit is supposed to make, I thought I better actually use the die as it was intended too lol :D The main largest die included can make this gorgeous shaped easel card, simply cut the full shape once, then cut it a second time without the extra flap, then decorate with whatever you like! But, you don't have to just make this type of card! Yesterdays blog post showed one way to add the larger decorative die to a smaller card, and tomorrows will show another way too, as well as a few simple cards using the stamps :D :D

Cards with Tonic's Journalling Stamps :D

A pair of cards, both with quite different styles really using the NEW Journalling stamps from Tonic :D These stamps are marketed as being used for Bullet Journalling etc, but they also work fabulously on cards too :D And I was particularly enjoying using them on Art Journal Layouts too :D :D I did film an up close video looking at these gorgeous doodly stamps, showing multiple ways to use them, so that should be up at some point in the future :D :D And my Kit #24 videos shouldn't be too far away either!! :D
