Blog TonicTeam Member!!





I'm so chuffed today to be able to say that I am now a blog member for Blog Tonic !!


Tonic Studios

I bought some of their lovely punches complete with a border system and was smitten!! Since then I've been busy with the punches trying out different ideas and the card above is my latest.
I've used the scallop punch with the border system to create the collar of the cardigan. I ran it through a crimper to make it more realistic and added pearl brads as buttons.
I've also added 2 of my own digi images...Single rose ...as motifs on the pockets and have coloured them with Promarkers.
I made a little blouse for under the cardigan using Papermania Blueberry Hill paper.
I'm really looking forward to trying out more ideas with the Tonic Studios products!!!
