Newton's Nook May Release Day 1



Happy Monday everyone... It's time for the May Release from Newton's Nook Designs. You are going to love this month's release. Today we are introducing the Blooming Botanicals Stamp set and Framework Die


The Framework die works great alone or you can pair it up with our Frames and Flags Die set as well. I started my card by Stamping the Blooming Botanicals stamp onto two pieces of Watercolor paper with some Archival black ink. Then I used the largest die in the Framework set and die cut the first panel. I adhered that to a Black A2 size card base. Then using the third die in on the set the small scallop frame. I die cut the second piece of watercolor paper and again from a piece of Black to create a frame. I used the Spotlighting technique here but adding some Distress Inks to just the smaller portion of the image that I die cut. 


I watercolored the image and then I added the framed piece over the larger portion lining it up. I adhered it with some foam tape for some height. Then I added some Black gloss Nuvo drops to parts of the flowers and set it aside to dry. Once it was dry I die cut the smaller frame and stamped the sentiment in Black and adhered it off-centered along the edge.
