My first card featuring Newton Celebrates stamp set turned out clean and simple.
To start, I took Strathmore Bristol paper, die cut using Newton Celebrates Die Set and stamped the coordinating images from Newton Celebrates stamp set. Next I colored all the cute critters and a few accessories with a water based markers.
Here’s the complete list of all the markers I used:
TOMBOW MARKERS: n.N15, n.090, n.126, n.452, n.533, n.623, n.723, n.947, n.977, n.991.
ZIG CLEAN COLOUR REAL BRUSH MARKERS: n.41 Light Green, n.50 Yellow, n.60 Brown, n.61 Light Brown, n.64 Oatmeal, n.67 Mustard, n.72 Beige, n.83 Ochre, n.95 Mid Gray.
I wanted the colored critters become a main focus on my card and so I kept all the rest clean and simple. The sentiment from the same Newton Celebrates set was heat embossed on a piece of a purple cardstock and a tone on tone white embossing through Confetti stencil gave a finished touch.
Creating this card, I used the same NND products, but gave to this card a colorful twist with a bright background. And so the images were die cut using the coordinating Newton’s New Year Die Set from Bristol paper, stamped with a waterproof black ink and colored with water based markers. The background was inked with Mustard Seeds, Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet Distress inks. Next I applied the same Confetti stencil that I used on the first card and added a tone on tone a pattern on top with the same Distress inks along with a few water droplets.
In case you are curios, here’s what I used for coloring this card:
TOMBOW MARKERS: n.126, n.623, n.673, n.723, n.947, n.977.
ZIG CLEAN COLOUR REAL BRUSH MARKERS: n.41 Light Green, n.50 Yellow, n.51 Lemon Yellow, n.61 Light Brown, n.72 Beige, n.82 Purple, n.91 Light Gray.
