Happy Monday my crafty friends! Today is (sadly) my last guest designer post for Newton’s Nook Designs. It has been absolutely amazing showcasing their products this month and I want to give a big shout out “THANK YOU” to them for me inviting me. You will still see me posting on my blog using their products because I love to color up those images and play along with their challenges.
Speaking of challenges, today’s card is playing along with their color challenge #68. There is still time to play along. Visit the Inky Paws Challenge blog to find out all the details and a chance at winning some goodies!
I started with a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock cut to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and ink blended using Mermaid Lagoon and Squeezed Lemonade distress oxide inks. When the blue meets the yellow it creates a green so I could meet the colors in the challenge. Then I spritzed with water and dabbed with a paper towel.
Next, I cut this frame from the Frames & Flags die set. I lined up where this would be on my card front and stamped my sentiment which is from Newton’s Easter Basket stamp set. For my images, I stamped them onto Neenah White cardstock with copic friendly ink and colored with copic markers. There are coordinating dies you can use to cut these images out.
My distressed panel is added to an A2 size cardbase and then border panel on top. Next, I adhered my image of Newton in the egg with a tape runner and Newton in the Easter basket is attached with foam squares.
I hope you enjoyed today’s card !
