Oh my goodness, I’m so excited about today’s card! I’m up on the Newton’s Nook blog today with this fabulous underwater scene slimline card featuring a bunch of awesome Newton characters!
To start things off I laid my stamps out on the white panel I wanted to use for my background to make sure everything would fit. Then I stamped them out. I’ve got Scuba Newton, Purr-maid Newton and Gull Friends all represented here. So much fun! I colored them with copics and used the coordinating dies to cut them all out.
Then I moved on to distress oxide inks on my background. I used a little tea dye with ground espresso for the sand and mermaid lagoon with tumbled glass for the water. Then I die cut the top of the panel with the sea borders die. I spritzed the panel with water and then flicked the darker of the colors on each section for extra texture. I cut another background panel and used squeezed lemonade with the clouds stencil for the sky. I glued these two together and slipped my seagulls in between so it looks like they’re peeking out of the water.
I stamped my sentiment on the top left area of the sky and adhered the panel to a white scalloped background with foam tape. This whole thing was then adhered to a white card base.
Finally I moved on to finishing touches. I added glossy accents to the seashell, bubbles, kitty noses, goggles and seagull beaks. I put black glaze pen on the the eyes and white gel pen accents throughout. Last, I added unicorn Stickles to the purr-maid tail for that extra fun shimmer.
I hope you enjoyed today’s card and find some inspiration to create something beautiful.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
