Moving along quite quickly this week, we’re already on day 3 of the Newton’s Nook February Release reveals! I literally squealed with delight when I saw today’s set. It’s just the cutest. It also caused me to place an order immediatey to fill a couple holes I had. Hehehe!
This is what I’m talking about…filling in holes. I couldn’t believe I didn’t have all of this cuteness yet. Well, it was quickly rectified and you’ll be enjoying some fun farm themed goodness from me in the near future!
I didn’t go the farm route today though. These little sheep were speaking to me in the dreamy, counting sense instead.
So, I actually started this card by watercoloring with distress oxides on watercolor paper. I used chipped sapphire, blueprint sketch and salty ocean, drying in between each layer. Then I flicked gold watercolor on the whole panel. Once the whole panel was completely dry, I die cut it with the scalloped rectangle in Frames & Flags. Then I stamped and colored my sheep from Baa and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
I pulled out the sky scene builder dies and cut some clouds, stars and a moon. I used some gold paint from my stash to color the stars and moon and then used liquid glue to attach clouds and sheet together. I laid everything out as a guide and decided where to stamp and heat emboss my sentiment.
After that was finished I added foam tape to the back of the watercolor panel and added it to a dark blue A2 sized panel. Then I used liquid glue to adhere that to a card base. Finally, I added all of my images with a combination of liquid glue and foam squares.
For finishing touches on this card, I added glossy accents to the sheep hooves and noses and left it alone. There is a lot of texture and interest from the layers and different watercolor. I just love it!
