Sandy Paws and Salty Kisses – IPC 174


Hello and welcome back!

Today starts a brand new Inky Paws Sketch Challenge! If you are inspired by the sketch, create a project using Newton’s Nook products and link your project up to the Inky Paws Challenge Blog for a chance to win $20 to the Newton’s Nook Online Store. Yep, it’s that easy! Here is the sketch for inspiration:

For my card today, I decided to create a fun beach scene using the sketch. To start, I stamped the image from the Beach Barks Stamp Set onto a piece of Copic-safe paper. Then, I colored the image with the following Copics:

Labrador: E44, E42, E41, E30

Puppy: 100, W8, W6, W5, W3

Hat: E17, E15, E13, E11, BG49, BG45, BG32

Lei: YR07, YR04, Y15, Y13

Floatie: R59, R29, R08, R05

Sunglasses: RV04, RV02, RV00

To create the beach scene, I cut two strips of white paper using the Sea Borders Die Set, as well as one strip of Kraft paper using the Land Borders Die Set. For the water, I ink blended using Salty Ocean and Prize Ribbon Distress Oxides, then, I splatted some water to create depth. For the land, I splattered some white acrylic paint to add some texture and give it the look of sand.

I wanted to create a beachy sunset for the background, so I used Gina K Wild Dandelion ink, Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink, Gina K Innocent Pink Ink, and Picked Raspberry Distress Ink. Then, I splattered some Brea Reese Glitter Ink in Orange across the background.

To finish it off, I glued my scene together, popped the dogs up using foam tape, and stamped the sentiment “Sandy Paws and Salty Kisses” from the Beach Barks Stamp Set.

I hope you join us in the Inky Paws Challenge by the end of the day on June 3rd for a chance to win a $20 voucher to the Newton’s Nook Online Store!

Thank for stopping by!
