Newton’s Nook Designs June Release – Introducing Sweet Summer

By Taheerah | 19th June 2014 | 22 Comments

Hey everyone!

I’m back today to welcome to Day 2 of the Newton’s Nook June Release!

We have two *awesome* sets being released this month – and you’re totally invited to come party with us!

This month we’ve two very different sets but both are totally versatile and awesome! Today’s set is a great full sized set with darling fruits images and super-sweet sentiments – Sweet Summer!! I love the images in this set and I just know you will too!!

I wanted to focus on the citrus slice image from the set. Here’s what I came up with:

What do you think? I love how this turned out!!

I started with a panel of Pure White cardstock and stamped the reverse of the slice onto the panel repeatedly to create a pattern. I used Mama Elephant inks in Sunshine, Orangeade, Mojito and Bubblegum, then overstamped the outlines with SU! inks in Melon Mambo, Tangerine Tango, Pear Pizzazz and Crisp Cantaloupe. 

I then watercoloured the background with a little SU! ink in Blushing Bride. Part of me is still wishing I’d left it white, but what’s done is done! I stamped my sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black ink and adhered my panel to my base using Pinflair Glue Gel and I was all done!

All the Newtonians (that’s what I’ve decided to call us, hehe!) are blog hopping today! Please be sure to join us and hop along and comment on each of the team’s creations! Read on because there’s a prize up for grabs!
