Newton’s Nook – Let’s Be Mermaids!

Hello again everyone! I’m over on the Newton’s Nook blog again this week with a second bit of inspiration and today we’re going down deep in the ocean with my Purr-maid friend Newton. I hope you love it as much as I do!

This card all started with the idea to create that fun wavy color block pattern in the background. I chose a selection of cardstock colors and cut them all with one of the Sea Borders dies. I nested them together and secured them with washi tape on the back before die cutting them with the rounded rectangle in the Frames & Flags die set.

Next, I chose images from Purr-maid Newton and Scuba Newton, stamped and colored them with my copic markers, before cutting them out with the coordinating dies. Then I arranged them on the panel, deciding on final placement and where to put my sentiment. I eventually thought the speech bubble would be fun so I cut one and stamped the sentiment on that and then adhered the images with a combination of liquid glue and foam squares.

Next, I took a white A2 size panel and lightly inked up the Waves stencil with teal ink and a blending brush before popping the focal panel up with foam tape on it. Then I used liquid glue to add the whole thing to a card base and moved on to finishing touches.

For those I added black glaze pen to the fish eyes and glossy accents to the stripes or fins on each fish and Newton’s nose. Then I came in with unicorn Stickles on Newton’s tail and the bubbles above the sentiment.

I had so much fun creating this card and just love how the wavy panel turned out! I think it’s so cool!
