It is the final day of the June release reveals at Newton’s Nook Designs. Today we have 2 smaller sets to show you: the super cute Porch Swing Friends and the beautiful Roses set. Both of them come with coordinating dies! All new products will be available on Friday 19th June 2020!
For my first card I started stamping and colouring the Porch Bench Friends using my Copic markers. I used neutral colours for the animals and went really bright with the pillows. I cut them all with their coordinating dies. After die cutting I used a BG11 Copic marker to colour the white parts of the image so it would sink in the background more.
To set the scene I needed some trees which I cut from woodgrain cardstock with the Forest scene builder dies and the canopy which I cut using the Sky border dies. I used Distress Oxide inks to add some colour to these and I added some splatters too for more texture.
On an A2 sized card base I sponged the new Speckled Egg Distress Oxide ink (ahh so pretty!) and added some splatters from the same colour and white watercolour. I also added some droplets from a clear shimmer mist.
When assembling the scene I used 3D foam squares for the canopy and the coloured image, the tree trunks I adhered flat. The sentiment is die cut 2 times from white cardstock and once from a velvet red one and layered on top of each other. I love that the Porch Swing Friends coordinating die has this extra sentiment!
I made the critters noses shiny with glossy accents and added a bit of clear shimmer to the red parts of the accessories. Oh how I wish to relax on a swing like this!
I have recently surprised myself with a big set of Karin Brush markers. These are water based markers with really intense pigments in them and I felt the Roses stamp would be the prefect one to try them on.
I heat embossed the image on Ranger watercolour cardstock using Hero Arts black sparkle embossing powder. Then I added a tiny drop of colour from the markers and moved it with a waterbrush. The colours are amazing and so bright! I used only one pink and one green marker! When it was dry I cut it out with the coordinating dies.
I also cut some rounded stitched rectangles using Frames squared and patterned papers. I layered them on top of each other at an angle on a top folding white card base.
I used a small rectangle from the Slimline Frames and Windows die to hold my roses and added a white heat embossed sentiment on a black strip of cardstock to it. The card base this time is 4,25 x 4,25 inches.
