Newton's Nook Designs May Release - Day 2



Hello and welcome to day 2 of the May reveals at Newton's Nook Designs.  Today we've got another A-mazing floral for you, called Peony Blooms with coordinating dies. For my top card here with the yellow flowers (are there any yellow peonies known in nature?  I'm guessing not, but I just was drawn to my yellow copics when I went to color this).  I love how this turned out, using 2 of the dies from the Framework set, pictured below, to create my frame. The background paper is by Echo Park called Here & Now.


For my second card, I attempted a technique new to me, where you stamp your images using distress ink and then a waterbrush to color the images, pulling color from your lines.  Admittedly, I need practice..however, my last flowers were better than the first few I colored, so I thought I'd show you!  This is a technique I plan to practice more. I die cut my panel and layered it on gold and berry cardstock.

  11. I love how your Distress Ink card turned out! I've never tried that out either and I'm so inspired by this as I thought it would be hard. You knocked it out of the park on your first try so I should get it, although maybe not that quick ;-) The Copic card is gorgeous too!
