Rose Circle Doily with Butterflies

Are you enjoying the Pick of the Week Shows - aren't the new dies and punches lovely? Here's one I made earlier using the new Intrica Verso Rose Circle Doily and Deep Edge Punch set.
Card Recipe:
Tools: Tonic Studios Die Sets - Intrica Rose Circle Doily Die Set, Intrica Rose Deep Edge Punch, Flava Butterfly DieColouring Mediums: Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Paper and Card: Stardream
Embellishments: flatback pearls

The star of this show is most definitely the beautifully intricate and versatile Rose Doily die. I cut my doily out in pearlescent stardream card and inked through the die with Tattered Rose Distress ink.  Then instead of raising the doily, I reversed the order by raising the outer base and insetting the die.
All that was needed to finish off this card with such a beautiful focal point was a couple of butterflies and a die cut from the Butterfly and Blooms range (Flava).  As you can see, this lovely Doily will work very well with all your existing Tonic Studios dies.

This is a really quick post, folks, as when this post is published on Saturday, I will be at Make It and Stitch It, Farnborough (28th Feb - 2 Mar) to demonstrate Tonic Studios dies and punches on the CraftyDevils stand.  If you are going, please do stop by and say hello!

And don't forget, there's lots more inspiration for using all your Tonic dies and punches over on my own blog, Dips Designs.

Ta Ta for now - have a great weekend crafting!
