Newton's Nook: Day 1 of July Reveals

 
It's day one of the July Release reveals at 
Newton's Nook Designs!
Today we are featuring the set called "Newton's Daydream"
This set will be given away to two lucky winners, so stop by the 
Newton's Nook Blog to leave a comment!


"Newton's Daydream"

My card sample is a combination of paper piecing stamped images and a
bit of watercoloring.  I first stamped the image onto solid orange patterned paper and then
shaded the edges with Faber-Castell's #117 and #121 Aquarelles.

I stamped the image again onto white cardstock (for the flowers), light blue cardstock
(for the background) and the green floral print (for the foreground).  
The card base was embossed with a bee embossing folder by LifeStyle Crafts...
I thought it would be the perfect compliment for the little bee stamp!

Love everything about this card - Newton is colored so professionally, that embossed background is perfect, the pure whiteness of it really makes the ovals POP, and the touch added of Doodlebug Deign paper is so AMAZING!! Way to go - have a great day!!
