Newton's Nook Designs 4th Anniversary Blog Hop!



Hello friends!    I am so excited to be a part of the Newton's Nook Designs' 4 Year Celebration Blog Hop!    What a fantastic July release, right?!  I chose to work with the adorable Toucan Party stamp set and the Tropical Leaves stencil.   I am really excited to see NND adding stencils to their product line! Woo-hoo!


I found a toucan image online, and tried my best to color these little guys authentically - but there are so many fun color variations you could do - I can't wait to color more!   I fussy cut the image out and set it aside while I worked on the background.


I used the Tropical Leaves stencil for my background - I mixed several colors of Distress Ink into some translucent embossing paste.   I love the color variation within the leaves!   I happened to have the perfect color of cardstock to coordinate with the background, so I layered it over the top of the stenciled background and die cut a frame (from MFT) to serve as a spot for the toucans to "perch"!   I stamped the fun sentiment onto a piece of blue cardstock, added some clouds with white pigment ink, and then adhered the toucans at the top using an Action Wobble spring....so fun!  

 
There's a great deal going on this week - a free Pawprints stencil with $75 purchase!   Be sure to check that out as well!
