Hey, hey my fabulous friends!!! If you haven’t already, head over and pick up your fabulous fall goodies from the Newton’s Nook release! It’s available for purchase today! YIPPEE!!!
When I was playing around, creating backgrounds for the release, I ended up with an extra and couldn’t resist making another card with it to share with you today!
For this background, I did some ink smooshing with Tombow Dual Brush markers on a white panel. I chose brown, orange and green and made sure to heat the panel in between for that awesome layering effect. If you don’t dry it in between, your colors can get muddy. But if you do, they layer on top of each other and give a much more impactful look.
When the panel was completely dry I die cut it with the scalloped rectangle in Frames & Flags die set. Then I stamped the Heartfelt Fall stamp in Versamark ink and heat embossed it with copper embossing powder.
Next, I stamped another mouse from Autumn Mice and colored him with my copic markers. Then, I used the coordinating dies to cut him out. For this card I decided to stamp my sentiment on the background panel and use Tombow markers to color the word “fall” in kind of an ombre effect.
For assembly, I adhered a green cardstock panel to a white card base, then popped the background panel up with foam tape. Next, I popped the mouse up with foam squares.
For finishing touches I added glossy accents to the word “fall” on the sentiment, the mouse’s nose and black glaze pen to his eyes. Last, I glued a scattering of brown clay heart embellishments around the design.
Voila! This sweet card is all finished and ready for fall to get here so it can be mailed out!
