It's time for Day 3 of our collaboration with Tonic USA!  Each day this week we will be sharing projects featuring N&T and Tonic products on both the Neat & Tangled and Tonic USA blogs, there are also two big prizes to be won.

Here at Neat & Tangled we'll be selecting one lucky comment from our collaboration blog posts to receive a $75 credit to spend at Tonic. AND, Tonic will select a commenter from their blog to win a $75 credit to the Neat & Tangled store.

Today Cheiron and Nancy are sharing with us.  First we have Cheiron:


My card today uses everything sparkly and metallic! I started off by cutting a piece of watercolor cardstock backed with adhesive foam using the Geometric Circles Cover Plate die. Then I colored over the panel using my Dual Ended Blender Brush to apply Embellishment Mousse in Mother of PearlIndian Gold and Fresh Copper to create my background starting with the lightest color around the outside and the darker colors inside. This mousse is so easy to blend! 


Then I cut out the Seeing Stars die and embossed it with the Gold Enchantment Glitter Embossing Powder. This is probably one of the sparkliest gold embossing powders I have ever used. I also had a piece of paper that was cut with the Embellishment Circles die and I covered it with Radiant Gold Gilding Flakes and added that on top of the stars to give another layer of dimension. 


Once those layers were adhered, I cut the Hooray die from another piece of paper that I colored with Fresh Copper Embellishment Mousse and added it to the Hooray outline that was cut from white cardstock. Once all the layers were glued down, I added some Nuvo drops in Copper Penny. I sure hope I know someone celebrating something soon, because I can't wait to give them this card!

Next up is Nancy:

Let's get messy with some Nuvo Embellishment Mousse by Tonic Studios! To create this card I used the Punchinella Steel Die to create a mask. Then I dipped into the Aquamarine Mousse and started spreading this beautiful frosting up at the top of the card. Next, I used the Spring Green Mousse at the bottom and overlapped the colors creating a beautiful transition shade in the center.


The Embellishment Mousse is very light and easy to spread. It cleans up really well too. I love that you can mix colors to create different shades.


The Prehistoric Pals Stamp Set was perfect for this textured background. The dino images were watercolored and placed on foam to give them a little lift. Don't forget to give your embellishment mousse some time to dry. It's pretty quick to dry and was ready to go after 15 minutes.


Try the Nuvo Embellishment Mousse and Punchinella Steel Die to create texture backgrounds with a splash of color!

Don't forget to leave a comment here to be entered to win a $75 credit to the Tonic store, and then head over to the Tonic USA blog to see what their team created.  We'll be back tomorrow with more inspiration for you!
