Cards with Nuvo Mousse – Tonic Studios

Hi there everyone, today I´d like to share a set of simple and easy to do cards, created with Nuvo Embellishment Mousse.

I started by applying the mousse with a palette knife onto the silicone sheet (my working surface) and added some water to the paste. This way it becomes more fluid and can be applied like a watercolor.

For the first card I just added two shades of the mousse, creating a very random pattern with the Nuvo water tank brush. Next I added random splatters with with the same brush.

A few days ago I had stamped images with the Magnificent Magnolia stamp set onto white cardstock and colored them with Nuvo Highly Pigmented Watercolour Pencils (Brilliantly Vibrant and Hair & Skin Tones sets).  Then I took the matching die cut set and die cut all the flowers and leaves. I had quite a few, so you will be seeing them showing up on various future cards :).

After die cutting I took a flower tool kit out and formed the flowers with the tool into a more dimentional form.

Then I adhered a leaves and a flower piece on top of each other onto the card base. Die cut a scalloped circle from Pearl Ripple cardstock to go with the flower and decorated with card with Nuvo Crystal Drops. For finishing touches I added golden sequins with Nuvo Glaze very randomly to the background.

For finishing touches I die cut the German sentiment (= for mum) from Black Velvet Cardstock and adhere that in place. I love the contrast the mousse, the flower and the black sentiment create!

and here is the finished card:

For the second card I did pretty much the same, except I painted circles with the Nuvo Water Tank Brush and added another sentiment. This one is also one of the German sentiments by Tonic Studio (these are available at QVC) and it says: „You can do it“.

For decoration I added two tones of sequins here – green and golden ones.

I hope you enjoyed todays card ideas! Be sure to stop by from time to time for more ideas, tutorial and projects!

Happy crafting,
