I'm here today with a card to wish my crafty friend, Karen Ladd, a very Happy Birthday!!!!
Are purples hard for anyone else to photograph? I really had to play with PicMonkey to get these colors anywhere near the real ones.....and they still aren't great....esp on the watercolor background!!! But I was in a purple mood and Karen loves kitties, so I went from there. :)
|Naughty Newton has decided the empty box is as much fun as the gift that is supposed to be inside!!!|
I stamped Newton on a piece of my watercolor marker refill background paper and colored him with Spectrum Noirs. I don't think I have tried coloring over one of my backgrounds before....at least not very many times. I wasn't sure how the colors would look, but I think it worked pretty well.
Supplies used include:
Newton's Nook - Newton's Antics stamp set
My Favorite Things Die-namics - Stitched Square STAX die set
Sizzix - TH Texture Fades - Sparkles
DCWV scrap of lavender tiny plaid print
Wink of Stella pen on a few of the embossed sparkles
Sparkly raffia ribbon from Dollar Store
Karen, I hope you like your card!
