Back with day 3 of the 4 year celebration with Newton’s Nook Designs. Today we are showing off one set that I just think is adorable. It is called Toucan Party…such fun! I combined the reveal with the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches (where I am the sketch hostess this week).
The first thing I did for this card was pull out the awesome new Tropical Leaves stencil and create this background with Distress Ink (Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn). Just look at what a great foundation it gives a card. Can I tell you how happy I am for these new stencils?? And it seems like all of you are loving them too! Then I stamped the toucan and some leaves and flowers using Versafine Onyx Black ink and colored using more Distress Ink. Want to see my “muse” for this one?
Just look at his amazing coloring!!! Nature certainly does it best so I just mimicked his colors. And I LOVE them!! Check out his little blue feet!!! Yeah…I know. Who can resist that?! Clearly not me! I colored some of the leaves as a background for him and then the flower as a balance element. I used the small panel of the sketch to show off part of the sentiment (and the puns in this one are super fun). Here is the sketch if you want to join in this week…I’d be thrilled to see you!
