NND April Release Day 1



Happy Monday everyone.. It's time for the April Release from Newton's Nook and we are starting off with a peek at the new set Beautiful Plumage and it's coordinating die set. Be sure to join us all week as we reveal the new Release and all the New Products that will be available in the store on Friday April 14th. 


I used some Distress Oxide Inks to create a Fun background and color in the image. I started by creating the background on a piece of watercolor paper and then Once it was dry I trimmed off the edge and adhered it to a Black card base. Then I stamped the sentiment onto a strip of White card stock and stamped it in Cracked Pistachio, Wilted Violet and Broken China. These are the same colors I used for the background as well. 


I stamped the peacock image onto some watercolor paper with VersaFine ink and heat embossed it in Clear. Then I wet the areas of the image and dropped the color into it and let it spread around on it's own. Once it was dry I rubbed off any excess that was over the embossed areas. I used the coordinating dies to cut the image out and I adhered it to the card front with some foam adhesive. For a little sparkle I added some Sparkling Clear Sequins. 

You are going to love this Release!
