Welcome to day 1 of the February Release from Newton’s Nook Designs. This month’s reveals are going to wow you, as usual. Such variety and fun! Today we have an adorable set called Newton’s Easter Basket (with coordinating dies) along with a new stencil called Cloudy Sky.
I love that we get to start off with our favorite kitty this month! I chose the image with all the eggs but you are going to love the Newton “bunny” and Newton in the egg too. Such fun! I started by using the new Cloudy Sky stencil with Versamark ink and clear embossing powder. I just applied the ink straight from the pad. A little less precise but that was the look I was going for….just like real clouds! The embossed areas resist the watercoloring. I used Distress Ink in Peacock Feathers for the sky. I created the grass using Mowed Lawn and cut the edge with the Land Borders Dies. Then the real fun started! I stamped Newton, a few extra eggs and an extra bird. Using more Distress Inks I chose bright and happy colors and got to coloring. The coordinating dies make cutting out the elements easy. I added two extra eggs for dimension and the little bird seemed perfect on Newton’s tail. I pulled out my white gel pen to add a little more detail to finish.
Isn’t this a great day 1? Yep, I knew you would think so. Now on to everyone’s favorite part of release week. A chance to win!!
