Today is my day to share a project on the Newton’s Nook Designs Blog and given the news from Texas, my inspiration for this isn’t too hard to guess. I thought that Newton’s Rainy Day was the perfect set for creating a card right now.
As soon as I pulled out this image with the big umbrella, I thought that my new Chameleon Color Tops would be fun to use. And yep, was I right! The shading on each panel was created by starting with a base color pen and then infusing with another color. So my Fuchsia (PK5) pen was infused with Mellow Yellow (YO2) and what a cool effect, don’t you think?! Same with the Turquoise (BG3) (infused with Mellow Yellow). For the duck I used Mellow Yellow infused with Tangerine (OR3). The kitty is Neutral Gray (NG4).
I combined “regular” Chameleon use with the Color Tops on this and it is amazing how much fun it was to experiment with color options. Once I finished coloring, I was looking for just the right background when this one virtually jumped out at me. Um, yeah…the ombré yellow from the Color Theory DSP matched perfectly! I created a little frame and added some sequins and left most of the focus on this adorable image and its bright colors. I hope you like my Newton’s extra this month. So glad you stopped in to see me. Back tomorrow with the latest from Freshly Made Sketches. Until then, have a great day!
