A little Chat, Haul and Sneak Peek for DT TONIC USA Mixed Media Canvas/Jukebox Project

Good evening my friends. I am working on my DT TONIC USA project. I decided on a Vintage Theme using the TONIC Jukebox Die. Instead of going with the 50's theme of vibrant colors, I am choosing to create with soft pastel goodness. Meanwhile, I received a few packages from Altenew and Chibitronic My first reaction was to share it with you. The TONIC USA DT project will be a Mixed Media Canvas using a different color pallet. I am adding the finishing touches, that will bring me to the edit/voiceover before posting. I hope you will enjoy the process with me. Here are most of the supplies I used on the Canvas:

11 x 14 Denim Canvas

Sew Very Happy Stamp Set

Best Buds and Budding Stamp Set and Dies

Best Buds Stamp Set

Mini Blossom Die Cutting Plates

Chibitronics Red, Yellow and Blue Set

Roll of Copper Tape

Floating Water Lights for the double batteries

3 Volt Lithium Flat Batteries for Chibitronic Lights

12 Newest Oxide Inks by Ranger

All TONIC USA Products used on the Mixed Media Canvas

Transfer Gel Possibilities are endless! Deco Foil

Good evening my friends. It is wonderful to have this rather L O N G tutorial completed for you. I had so much fun creating this 4 sided Vintage Card last week. I decided to find as many ways of using the Deco Foil Transfer Gel besides using a stencil. I was hoping to find different ways to get that gorgeous foiled look without the use of Laser Jet inked paper, and die cutting. I look forward to another tutorial using it on animal fur. Making the gel work without foiling to get a texture that is one of a kind. I will be back to place some of the products I used in case you are interested where I purchased them. smile........ I think this tutorial is one of my L O N G E S T video times to date. hahaha I edited it down from 18 hours of video taping to 1 1/2 hours of viewing time. Phew, it was a process for sure. I hope you enjoy it, gleaning some inspiration throughout this 4 sided Vintage Style Card. Have yourself a wonderful week, and I will see you soon.

Dry Embossing, Tombo Watercolour Techniques plus matching Vellum Box Envelope

Good evening friends. Well, this is one of the longest video tutorials to date. haha I created a matching Box Envelope to go along with the theme of the Altenew Peony Stamp Set. You will notice I watercolour the petals by using "BLOOMS" as the colouring technique. I show you how I create a Vellum Envelope without an Envelope maker. smile I also use Prisma Pencils on top of the Tombo Markers when they are completely dry. This will add texture, and dimension to already watercolored stamped images. This is a rather L O N G tutorial, but it is packed full of inspiration. I hope you will enjoy it, as I enjoyed creating it for you.
