Frankly, You’re the Best – IPC 182 Reminder


Hello and welcome back!

There is still time to join the current Inky Paws Color Challenge! Create a project using the challenge colors for a chance to win a $20 voucher to the Newton’s Nook Online Store!

For my card today, I used the new Franken-Newton Stamp set to create an electrifying Halloween scene. 

I started by stamping and coloring the walking Newton from the set and coloring it with my Copic markers. Here are the colors I used:

Green: YG09, YG06, YG03, YG01

Black: 100, W8, W6, W5, W3

After coloring, I cut out the image using the coordinating die set. 

To create my background, I cut a large circle using the Circle Frames Die Set out of a piece of masking paper. I put the negative (the piece with the circle opening) of the masking paper onto a 4.25×55 inch piece of watercolor paper. Then, I ink blended using Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, and Dried Marigold Distress Oxides. I removed the negative mask and placed the circle mask over the moon. To create the night sky, I ink blended using Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Rustic Wilderness, and Black Soot Distress Oxides. When I was happy with the blending, I removed the mask and sprayed the background with water to give it a watercolor look.

While that was drying, I cut a strip of grass out of black paper using the Land Borders Die Set. Then, I heat embossed the sentiments “frankly, you’re the best!” and “happy Halloween” onto the background using black embossing powder. 

To finish my card, I adhered the grass to the bottom of the panel and popped the Franken-Newton up on foam tape before placing him in the scene. 

I hope you join us in the Inky Paws Challenge for a chance to win $20 to the Newton’s Nook Online Store!

Thanks for stopping by!
