Newton's Nook Nov. Release Day 2


Happy Tuesday everyone It's day two of the November Release from Newton's Nook Designs and today we have two more Amazing sets to introduce. 


Up first is Poinsettia Blooms and it's coordinating dies...


I created a background on a piece of watercolor paper with the new Plaid Layering stencil and some Distress Ink and Gold Pigment ink. Then I added some splatters of several shades of Gold ink. While the panel was drying I stamped and heat embossed the Images in Gold embossing powder on Watercolor paper. 


I colored the images in with Distress Inks and then used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I stamp and embossed the sentiment in Gold embossing powder as well and trimmed it out with scissors. I used an ombre effect with the stencil by applying the ink lighter as I went down the paper. 

Our next set today is... Winter Birds and it's coordinating Dies. 
I used the new Argoyle Stencil with this card and did an Ombre effect as well or just faded the stencil out and then I created the second layer with some Clear Glitter Nuvo Paste. 


I stamped the snowflakes in the background before added the embossing paste. Then I stamped and colored the bird and branch image in with Copics and added some White Gel Pen details. I adhered the images with foam tape and then created a sentiment banner with the Flags and Frames die set.
