This cute little guy is Newton and he is from the stamp set Newton's Birthday Bash by Newton's Nook. This is the first time I have used him and I just love that he s floating on that balloon up up and away! Here he is!
I will be entering this card in the Mod Squad challenge, Thinking of Spring, and in the Inky Paws challenge #7 Go Green!
The card base is Apple Green and the white layer is Tim Holtz water color paper. I used that because I wanted to do water color in the BG. Next I used distressed inks, Evergreen Bough and Bundled Sage. Smeared them on my craft mat and sprayed with water, then place the paper on top. That had to be dried well before adding some GKD Green Grass and Memento Pear Tart, which I sponged on. I wanted more green. I used a stencil for the panel with the stars. Newton is stamped and fussy cut and the balloon is paper pieced. I put some glue on the baker's twine and formed the curls, something new that I learned with week. Newton is adhered with foam squares, and so is the banner on the bottom. I am very pleased with how this one turned out. I have my favorites you know.
Thanks for stopping by,
