Newton’s Nook – Meow-ing in the Rain!

Welcome friends! Today I’m over on the Newton’s Nook blog with an extra project to share gearing us up for all things spring! I’m very ready for more sunshine and time outside. How about you?

When shuffling stamps around moving out of the winter season, I found this adorable set that I haven’t given enough love – Newton’s Rainy Day Trio! So I immediately pulled it out to create with.

I wanted to keep the colors soft so I started by coloring my kitties all the same but with very light colors. Then I kept to the softer colors for the others as well. This took some effort for me because I lean toward the bold side. I think they turned out really sweet though and it was fun to think differently about color combos.

I stamped a few music notes before using the coordinating dies to cut everything out. Then I used the Raindrops stencil on a piece of white cardstock with teal ink fading as I went down. I removed the stencil and inked the top of the paper with the same color.

Next, I cut a strip of white cardstock and stamped my sentiment on it. I started with 1.5 inches but went down to 1.25 inches instead. I added foam tape to the back and popped it up on the bottom of the stenciled panel.

Next, I added the kitties and music notes with foam squares to keep them the same level as the sentiment panel. For finishing touches I added glossy accents to the buttons and boots, and you can’t forget the kitty noses too! Then I decided a little shine on the umbrella handles and tips would be good too.

I added Wink of Stella glitter brush pen to the music notes so they shimmer in the light and last of all I came in with a white gel pen to add highlights to the kitty images.

I live in Oregon where it rains all the time so I can relate to these kitties pretty well. I’m definitely more like the kitty in yellow – just put your hood on and enjoy it because it’s not going anywhere. Lol!
