Today I am sharing a second card for the Newton’s Nook Inky Paws Challenge! There are only a few more days to play along, so make sure you link up your card by Friday, January 29th for the chance to win a $20 store credit to the Newton’s Nook online store! (They just had a super cute new release, too!) The current challenge is a color challenge – use the colors teal, red, pink, and white on your card and join in on the fun!
For my card, I started by die cutting a piece of Hammermill 110# paper using the scalloped and stitched square from the Frames Squared die set. I then stamped the image from the Porch Swing Friends stamp set onto the center of my die cut panel. I actually extended the length of the rope on the porch swing using a thin-line black marker, so my image came up to the stitched line.
To color my image, I used Copic Sketch markers in the following colors:
Porch Swing: W2, W1, W0
Dog: E44, E43, E42, E01, E00, E50
Cat: C5, C4, C3, C1
Pink: R32, R30, R00
Red: R35, R14, R32
Teal: BG45, BG13, BG32, BG11, BG10
After I finished my coloring, I die cut a piece of red and white polka dot paper using the larger stitched square from the Frames Squared die set. Then, I stamped a ‘Hello” sentiment from the Newton’s Birdhouse stamp set onto my Copic-colored panel.
To finish my card, I used foam tape on the back of the scalloped panel and adhered it to my polka dot panel. I then used a strong liquid adhesive to attach the panels to a white 5 x 10″ card base that was scored to create a 5 x 5″ card.
Thank you for stopping by! I hope you are inspired to get your paws inky and join the color challenge!
