Welcome to day 1 of the August release from Newton’s Nook Designs. You are going to have so much fun with this group of stamps. I can hardly wait to share! And we are starting off with unicorns!! Yep really….unicorns! I believe and you will too!!
Look at these adorable images!! They just beg for pretty, bright colors. I stamped them onto Strathmore Bristol paper using Versafine Onyx Black ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I watercolored using Zig Clean Color Markers in “rainbow” colors. It is such fun to play with how the colors blend and the unicorn is the perfect place to try out combinations. Once colored, I cut the images out with the matching dies. I also added some extra clouds from the Winston Takes Flight set. Love how so many sets coordinate together. I created a curved layer using the Land Borders Dies and then sponged on a little bit of Distress Ink to help the image pop a bit. I used Melon Mambo card stock to frame the image panel. A clean card that focuses on the bright and happy colors! Such fun to create and I can’t wait to color these images some more!! And here is the best part…
