Happy Birthday Newton!!



Happy Friday everyone... It's time for the Newton's Nook 4 Year Anniversary Blog Hop!!! Come join the Design Team and some special guest as we highlight the July Release. We have Prizes too... We will be giving away four  $25 GC to the store. 


My hop project features the Fun new Set Winston's Lake House and it's Coordinating Dies. I also used the new Waves Stencil in my background and the trees from the new Lake Advice Stamp Set

I started out by water coloring some Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink onto a piece of Bristol cardstock through the Waves Stencil. You want to keep your ink more on the dry side so you don't have any seep under the stencil. This created a resist effect. Then I added some Tumbled Glass and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink over the stenciled waves. (The Distress Oxide Inks didn't blend when I added the regular Distress inks over them) Then I added some Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink to create a River's Edge. I smooshed the ink onto the mat and used a paintbrush. Once that was dry I added some Squeezed Lemonade Distress ink to the upper portion to create a Sky. Then I die cut the panel with a Wonky Stitched die. 


I stamped the images from Winston's Lake House and Lake Advice onto some Bristol cardstock and then I colored the image sin with Distress Inks. once the images were dry I added some water splatters to everything but Winston and dabbed the excess with some paper towels. I die cut a White card panel and added it to a Green card base. Then I stamped the sentiment in the lower corner with some Black ink. 

I adhered the circle piece to the card front and then I added the lake house other images directly onto the panel. I adhered Winston with some foam tape along with the dragonfly. I really like how these two sets paired up and the addition of the Stencil for some texture.
