Today is the last day of reveals for the 4 year celebration with Newton’s Nook Designs. But fear not…we are back tomorrow with a bonus hop to complete the celebration!! But first, I get to share with you my very favorite set from this release! It is called Cosmic Newton. Oh my goodness is it fantastic!
For this card, I thought it would be fun to play with watercolor paints. So I started with the background. On a piece of watercolor paper, I painted on some blues and even a little purple to create a sky that would be right for the new Starfield stencil. After letting my panel dry, I used the stencil as an embossing plate but running it through my Big Shot with an Impressions Pad and a Silicone Rubber Pad. It gives a subtle embossing look that I was really happy with. You can see me more of the detail here:
But then I returned to using the stencil as just a stencil. I kept it in place and the sponged on some white craft ink on the stars toward the top of the card. Then I brushed a bit of Perfect Pearls on top of that to add some shimmer. I have to confess that I’m pretty in love with the whole effect!! For my friend Newton, I thought he needed a really special rocket to stand out against the sky, so I chose purple for his ship. It is hard to tell here but I added some more Perfect Pearls on the window around Newton and also on the banner.
I hope you have enjoyed all of the release projects this week! The team has certainly provided a ton of inspiration!! And this release has been simply spectacular! And now…your chance to win one more time!
