Newton's Nook May Release Day 2



Happy Tuesday everyone.... I hope your week is starting off good. It's Day two of the May Release sneaks from Newton's Nook Designs. Today we are introducing Peony Blooms and it's coordinating dies. 


I did some watercoloring with Distress Inks on my project. I stamped the image onto a piece of watercolor paper and then I added a blue wash to the background first with Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean Distress inks. Then I added color to the flower image with Picked Raspberry and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks and an Aqua Brush. I used Fossilized Amber for the center of the flowers. 


I added the Distress Ink to the craft Mat and picked it up with the aqua brush and dropped it into the clear water I had laid down on the image. This lets the water spread and keep the colors soft so you can gradually build up. You can also heat set your color in between layers. Once the image was dry I stamped the sentiment just below the flower to the Right overlapping part of the floral image. I wanted the sentiment to pop where it was over the flower image so I added some White gel pen around the letters. 


I trimmed a 1/4" off the Floral panel and added some foam tape to the back. I cut an A2 size White card base and added some Black n' White washi tape along the edge. Then I adhered the image panel flushing it to the Right.
