Inky Paws Challenge 51 Inspiration

Hi there!  Today is the start of a new Inky Paws Challenge, and this time the theme is tropical.

To me, nothing says tropical like the beach, so I have the fabulous Newton enjoying some beach time (I wish I were there!).  I stamped this fun image from Newton’s Summer Vacation with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, colored it with Copics, and cut it out with my ScanNCut2.  I added some highlights with a white gel pen and some Glossy Accents to his shades.

Onto Bristol Smooth paper, I ink-blended Tea Dye Distress Ink for the sand and Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean for the sky.  I masked the sky before flicking some water onto the sand and blotting it with a towel.  I die-cut the panel and some American Crafts Sunny paper with Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle dies.  I adhered the patterned paper to a white card and popped up the ink-blended panel with foam tape.  Newton was also popped up with foam tape.  For my sentiment I created a sun with some dies from Craftin Desert Divas and stamped a sentiment from Newton’s Summer Vacation.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you enter a project in Inky Paws Challenge 51 because there’s a $20 gift certificate to Newton’s Nook Designs up for grabs!

I’m entering this card into the following challenges:  The Heart’s Desires Challenge #14 and Simon Says Stamp June 2017 Work It Wednesday.

    This is so pretty! I love the fun background you created for newton to chill out in! The added gloss on the sunglasses is the perfect finishing touch! Thank you for the Inky Paws challenge inspiration!
