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!
