Hey there -
I just love this Newton's Nook Stamp. The cat head shaped balloon makes me smile every time I see it. The stamp is perfect for several challenges -
Inky Paws Challenge - Colors Yellow, Teal, Green
Seize the Birthday - With Toppings - Balloons
AAA Birthday- Anything Goes
Work it Wednesday - SSS Pet Project
I stamped a grid stamp tone on tone on a yellow card base. Then I sponged ink in teal and yellow onto a card panel using Newton's Nook Bokeh stencils. I felt they gave a feel of lots and lots of balloons.
I added smaller dots with a copic marker in green to fill in some white space. Next, I stamped the sentiment and partially stamped the Newton Balloon image. After coloring, it was die cut with a circle and popped up against the bokeh inked panel and the card base.
There is a lot going on here for me and not my usual style. But I think it is definitely festive as a birthday card should be!
Thanks for visiting!
