I'm here for the Newton's Nook Designs 7 Year Blog Hop & SALE!! Who feels like CELEBRATING!! So EXCITED to help Newton's Nook Designs CELEBRATE their 7th Year of AMAZING Products and FUN!!
My Card is a Shaker Card!! I LOVE to make Shaker Cards!! Building a scene that mixes both New and Older Stamp Sets!! Its FUN to look through your stash and bring NEW life to some of the Images you might not have used in awhile!! I started by Stamping and Embossing the Images from the Newton's Nook Designs Purr-Maid Newton Stamp Set, Narly Mermaids and Manatee-rific!! I colored the Images using Copic Markers!!
Newton: E40, E43, E47
Seahorse: YR00, YR02, V01, V06, V12
Purple Fish: V01, V06
Sea Shell: E40, E43, E44
Then I used some Distress Oxide Inks in Tattered Rose, Abandoned Coral and Aged Mahogany to Stamp the Coral Images from the Tranquil Tides Stamp Set!! Then Embossed them using some WoW Clear Embossing Powder!! I used the coordinating Dies from Purr-Maid Newton, Narly Mermaids, Manatee-rific and Tranquil Tides to Die Cut the Images out and added some White Gel Pen Details then set them aside!!
For the Base I Started with an A2 Distress Watercolor Panel and inked it up using Tumbled Glass!! Then I Inked two more Panels using Distress Inks in Tumbled Glass, Shaded Lilac, Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire!! I added some Water Droplets using a Distress Sprayer for some dimension!! Then I die cut the Top of each of the Panels to create some Waves using the Newton's Nook Designs Sea Borders Die Set!!
To add even more interest to my under water scene I took the Newton's Nook Designs Sunscape Stencil and adhered it over my Distress Inked Panel with some Therm O Web Purple Tape!! Then used some Simon Says Stamp White Pigment Ink and Inked it up using a Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tool!! I LOVE the look of Light Filtering in from up above!! I used the Newton's Nook Designs Land Borders Die Set to Die Cut a Sandy Bottom and used Distress Inks in Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs to Ink it up!! I added some Stamped Details using the Image from the Tranquil Tides Stamp Set and Gathered Twigs!!
