Newton's Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge #32 ~ Use an Arrow!! =)

Pin It
Today I'm here with Newton's Nook Designs for the New Inky Paws Challenge #32 ~ Use an Arrow!! I was SUPER EXCITED about the New Challenge and decided to use the New Points & Plumes Die Set along with the New Adventure Awaits Stamp Set for my Card today!!

Here's my take on the Challenge Photo!!
I thought it would be FUN to create a Die Cut Background using the Arrow Dies and then I Watercolored a Distressed Watercolor Card Base to go underneath my Die Cut Card Panel!! I used Distress Inks in Tattered Rose and Spun Sugar, Cracked  Pistachio, Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers and Worn Lipstick!! I LOVE these Colors together!! Then I Die Cut a MFT Zig Zag Rectangle Die from some Distress Watercolor Paper and Stamped and Embossed my Sentiment along with a Small Arrow Detail!! I Embossed everything in some SSS Fine Detail Antique Gold Embossing Powder and then I decided I wanted the Sentiment to "POP" off my Card alittle more so I used the NEW Mini Misti Stamping Tool I won during the Misti-Mania Event going on over on the My Sweet Petunia Blog to Double Stamp and Emboss the Sentiment using Versa Fine Black Onyx Ink just slightly off from my Antique Gold Stamped and Embossed Sentiment and I REALLY LOVE the way it turned out!! (If you haven't been entering for your chance to WIN a Mini-Misti Stamping Tool I HOPE you'll GO and get entered for your chance to WIN!! SQUEAL!! Such an AMAZING EVENT!! Iliana ROCKS!!)   =) 
Then to Ground my Sentiment a Bit I Die Cut some SSS Antique Gold Embossed Cardstock along with some Black Cardstock using a Reverse Confetti Edge Essentials Confetti Cuts  Mini Zig Zag Die!! I Adhered them one ontop of another on the Bottom of the Zig Zag Rectangle Stamped Sentiment Piece!! Then I added some Gold and Black Acrylic Paint Splatters and a Mix of Sequins from Little Things from Lucy's Cards Brushed Gold Sparkly Sequin Mix!! I also added some Pretty Pink Posh Iridescent Mini Star Confetti to finish it off!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way it turned out!! I CAN'T WAIT to see what you create for this Month's Newton's Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge #32 ~ Use an Arrow!! THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by and I hope you have a FABULOUS MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND!!
