Hello and welcome!
Can’t believe that we’ve already reached the last day of the Newton’s Nook Designs August Release!!! Hope you like all the new FASTASTIC products and enjoying the Design Team inspiration projects!!!
All the new August products will be avaliable for purchaise on Friday, August 18th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!
There would be no purr-rect Newton’s Nook Designs release without the adorable kitty Newton! Right?! And I think that all Newton’s fans will not be disappointed with this new gorgeous stamp set called Autumn Newton. Like other sets, Autumn Newton comes with the coordinating dies.
No need to tell you how I’m excited about this new set since I just adore the cute mischief and Autumn is my favorite season! So it’s a win win combo for me! LOL!!!
I think that there’s no need to put much thoughts on the card design when you work with such fabulous stamps. Just crab any little scene from Autumn Newton stamp set, stamp it, add some color and you will end up with a stunning result for sure.
And so I decided to make two almost one layer watercolor cards. I used for both projects a cold pressed watercolor paper from Arches since I needed some paper that hold well the water and played a little with a regular watercolors. I currently use a palette that I set up myself using watercolors from different brands. But you can use any watercolors you have on hand.
On my first card I went for a soft look using a brown ink instead of a usual black one. I built a scene making a little bit of masking and used two images from Autumn Newton plus a pumpkin stamp from Simply Seasonal set. On the second card I simply stamped the cute kitties and invested more time creating a watercolor background. Of course, the kitties were colored like my adorable mischiefs.
