Welcome to the last of the August release from Newton’s Nook Designs. I’m sure you have been waiting to see what Newton would be up to this month and we finally get to share! He is getting ready for Fall!! I knew I loved that kitty!
I have been getting a little push back from a certain calico I know that there have not been any Kate’s in my Newton release repertoire lately. I tried to tell her that calico orange is difficult to match with other colors, especially in spring and summer palettes. I was rewarded with a sprinkling of kitty glitter (cat fur) all over everything to prove the error of my ways. Thankfully, “calico” matches fall perfectly so here she is. Kate playing in the leaves!! After stamping in Versafine Onyx Black ink, I colored the image on the Bristol paper using my Zig Clean Color Markers. I used a couple of shades of each color to mimic the shading on the leaves we get in our yard every autumn. To created the card, I used a sheet from my old This and That books from SU. These were smash styled scrapbooks that have awesome prints. In a recent crafty cleanup, I found one of the books and removed all the pages that were unused “just in case”. I totally LOVE it as a layer here!! I put some corrugated kraft paper underneath and added a little twine under Kate (Newton). Now I’m all ready to start feeling a little of the crisp cool air of autumn in Virginia (my favorite season here!). And you know the deal by now….you can win this set for free (it really is a great part of release week!).
