Tonic Studios | Patterned Panels using the positive and negative

Today is the turn of a more subdued card than the previous two using the Patterned panels.
This one featured the  Budding Vine - USA | UK and also some Distress Inks.

I used:

Tonic Patterned Panels Die Set - Budding Vine - USA | UK
Tonic Sew Pretty Zips and Buttons Die and Deboss 10 Piece Set - USA | UK
Nuvo Embellishment Mousse - Lemon Sorbet 805N USA | UK

Distress Inks: Hickory Smoke and Black Soot

Soft Kabuki brush  from the Pound or Dollar store 

I took a plain european A6 folded card and placed the die at an angle and secured it with low tack tape. I run it through my die cutting machine a couple of times to make sure that it had die cut well. this is the positive effect with the die cutting.

Using a soft kabuki make up brush (I get mine from the Pound shop) I brushed Hickory Smoke all over. Then I created a pearlescent mister diluting a bit of the Embellishment Mousse in Lemon Sorbet in water and then fill a Mini Mister bottle with it. I sprayed gently over the card to give a subtle pearl spots effect.

Then I die cut two layers of Post-it Super Sticky Removable Label  and used them as masks on the card. I then used Black Soot distress ink pad and a kabuky make up brush to create a darker grey, once I was happy with the shade, I lifted the mask and the effect was created. And that is the negative effect using die cutting.

I placed a piece of vellum behind the cover and two pieces of different colours paper inside to create a subtle contrast.

Finally, I die cut a circle and the button, attached bakers twine and layered with a message.

I will be the first that says the obvious. And that is that the sentiment is too faint. But after deliberating for a while I decided that the star of the card is the background so I settled for this subtle message.

I hope you like this positive and negative effect with the patterned panels!
