Anyway I got my prize in from the Hero arts anniversary bloghop and I won a giftcard for Newton's Nook designs. I got the new birdbath, wild child and the splendind stags dieset, working ahead for Christmas lol.
Also got in my small order from Seven hill crafts and it all came together in the card for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: anything goes showcasing Newton's Nook products.
For my card I stamped Newton, now Tjeerd, onto hot pressed watercolor paper from Schut with Simon Says Stamp Intense black ink, and well one pass was enough, even with the new stamps, but I stamped it twice, just because I can ;-)
I used Talens ecoline to watercolor the image and then cut him out and went around the edges with a black Memento marker. I then used the Nuvo glitter gloss pen on the water
For the homscape panel I used Bristol smooth card and diecut the homescape from the top, leaving the card as long as possible, so I could decide later where to chop it. traced the edge onto the cardbase and applied Distress ink Tumbled glass with a mini inkblending tool, Just enough so the houses would show better and to break up all the white and camouflage the fact the Bristol is slightly creamier in color than my cardbase.
I stamped the sentiment from the birdbath set with Versafine black onyx ink. and the little flying bird with the intense black again. I colored it with the Spectrum Aqua pens (sunflower and marigold)
Mounted the panel with foamtape and the Birdbath as well.
Adhered everything together.
