Advice from the Lake w/ Newton's Nook Designs and Stamping for Autism!!

Pin It

Hello & Happy Friday!!
Today I'm sharing a BEAUTIFUL Lake themed card on the Newton's Nook Designs Blog!!
I created this lovely little lake scene to hold the big sentiment from the Lake Advice Stamp Set. I cut out the stitched rectangle panel using the Frames & Flags Die Set and watercolored it with Distress Oxide inks behind the sentiment. I added the wavy lake edge using our Sea Borders Die Set. I stamped the little trees to create a shore line, also from the Lake Advice Stamp Set. For the shiny wave background I used Distress Oxide Inks and a Stencil Brush to Ink the entire background with a light layer of Salty Ocean and then placed the Stencil down using Therm O Wed Purple Tape to hold it in place a Inked over it again with the Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink.. I then moved the Stencil up alittle and Inked it again using Iced Spruce Distress Oxide Ink. I LOVE the look of this Stencil layered!! Then I moved it up again and used Therm O Web Deco Foil Transfer Gel over the Waves Stencil, let it dry and foiled it with the NEW Deco Foil in Denim!!
SWOON!! I LOVE the way it looks!!
The sentiment on this set is so inspiring!! I thought it went so WELL with the Autism Awareness Blog Hop so I'm going to link it up to the 2018 Stamping for Autism Awareness Blog Hop too!! You can still hop along with this awesome hop for SEVERAL chances to win tons of amazing prizes through Sunday!! Make sure to check it out!!
