Newton's Nook: Day 2 of July Reveals

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


For my card I stamped the alligator onto a piece of white textured cardstock and 
then used Faber-Castell Aquarelles to color in the image.  Aquarelles are watercolor pencils, 
so I used a water brush to blend in the colors.  

I stamped the beach ball image seven times and then used a small round die to cut 
them out...a punch would also work great! To the center of each, I added a lime green
enamel dot...I love the texture that it adds and how it ties in with the 'gator :)
