Newton's Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge #18 - One Layer Cards!! ;)

Pin It

Hello!!
I'm here to share the New Newton's Nook Designs Inky Paws #18 Challenge!! The theme for this Challenge is One Layer Cards!! Now I have to admit, One Layer Cards are not easy for me to create nor are they one of my favorite types of cards!! I think mostly just because I like dimension and layers and embellishments so I had to think long and hard about my card design for this Challenge!! I knew I wanted to use the New Bunny Hop Stamp Set and after looking through my stash I decided it would be FUN to create an entire scene!! So I stamped an entire scene using Masks in order to create a seamless stamped design!! I LOVE the way it turned out!! ;) It took a little planning and I ended up having to stamp it out three times in order to get the placement of everything just right, but in the end I think it was worth the effort!! I then decided that I wanted to Water Color it using my Distress Markers and my Acrylic Block and a Detailed Water Color Brush!! I ended up adding several layers of water color so that I could achieve the depth and color that I wanted!! Now I'm NOT an EXPERT Water Color artist, and even though I did take a couple Beginning Art Classes in College I feel like when you are using stamps as your base, you can add color in ANYWAY that you want and they are still going to look AMAZING!! So just go with your gut!! ;) I've used the Bunny Hop, Newton's Day Dream, Versatile Vases and Winter Tails Stamp Sets for all of my images!!
What do you think!!?? I added some Splatters at the end and actually covered my images with the Masks that I had made while stamping my scene because I didn't want to ruin ALL of the work I did Water Coloring the Images!! I used Black Soot, Pumice Stone and Picket Fence Distress Markers for this!! Once they were dry I went in with my White Gel Pen and added some highlights to the Images for even more dimension and interest!! I wanted some Sparkle so I colored anything that was colored with a Bright Color with a Clear Glitter Wink of Stella Marker!! Then I couldn't resist adding a Fluffy Tail!! I REALLY LOVE the way it turned out and I hope you'll join us over on the Newton's Nook Designs Blog for a chance to WIN!! I look forward to seeing what you create!! ;)



THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by and I hope you have a Fabulous Weekend!!
