Guess what.....we're back today showcasing this month's new DIES! There are dies to match the Tranquil Tides set we introduced yesterday and also dies to go along with the old NND favorite, Newton's Antics! I played with the Tranquil Tides dies, and this is what I came up with....
I thought it'd be fun to create a negative die cut, and the fish was one of my favorites from the set! I die cut the fish from navy cardstock, and then lightly traced the shape onto white cardstock so I knew where to place the sequins. I glued the sequins in place and then foam mounted the tag over top of the sequin piece. I love the dimension this gives! I added some PPP Sparkling Clear sequins for bubbles and some green ribbon at the top (note to self - don't use Glossy Accents to adhere ribbon.....it WILL leave a mark! Grrrr....)
For the background, I inked a fish scale stencil with Mowed Lawn and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Inks. I love the third color the two of them created! The sentiment flag was the finishing touch!
Hope you've had a great time checking out the NND release this month! The new stamps and dies will be available to purchase tomorrow on the Newton's Nook site!
