A bit of Easter travel .....

Hello everyone,  so sorry I haven't blogged for a while. I really don't know where the time has gone. Tonic HQ has been manic this month with our move to Hochanda.

I'd like to wish you all a very Happy Easter and hope the Easter bunny visits your home. 

Today I'd like to share with you my card for this month's Win and Tonic Challenge.
Congratulations Denise Farrar on winning last month's challenge.

I've used the Jetsetters die set to create this card. It's a brilliant die set for someone going travelling or on holiday.

I cut an aperture into the white card using Tonics Diamond layering dies. Then cut a smaller aperture into raspberry card and layered it behind the white card.

I then cut the City skyline in black and honey gold card and layered them on top of each other to create a shadow. This was glued behind the aperture.

The New York Landmarks were cut and embossed in black gloss card. Using a white gel pen, I picked out the detail on one side of the buildings.

The background was created by painting on white card with embellishment mousse which gives a wonderful sheen. 

Before gluing the  background in place slot the landmarks behind and in front of the skyline.

Place the whole card on a black layer and place on 3d foam pads before adhering to a card base.

Finish off with a Thinking of You sentiment and Glow in the Dark drops.

Hope you like this month's Challenge card.
