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!
