Guess what today is?! The start of release week for the March release from Newton’s Nook Designs. I swear each release gets better and better! I won’t even keep you in suspense. Let’s just get this started!
So you know that I almost died of joy the second I saw this set, right? I mean really. This adorable little Winston and a plane! It is like Jennifer Jackson knew how much I needed this when she designed this set. I’m forever on the lookout for the perfect plane and sentiments and this set has them all! The hardest part was getting my brain to focus on what to make first. I thought that I’d be good starting with Distress Ink coloring since I could show off the new Sky Borders Dies along with this set by creating a sky background.
I inked up watercolor paper with Broken China ink and then added some splatters of water. Then I cut 2 layers of the clouds with the Sky Border Dies and offset them. I used a stitched rectangle die to get them all evened up and created the sky for my plane. After some debate I chose an orange and yellow palette for the plane (who doesn’t love a yellow plane?!) that I thought was fun and a great way to show off this image. The coordination die set makes it super simple to create scenes since it includes clouds and a die for the banner image too. I found this happy bright base that matched my plane (Sunshine by Simon Says Stamp). Now here is some more exciting news….
