Newton's Nook Designs Launch Party: Newton's Antics


Welcome to day 1 of the Newton's Nook Designs Launch Party!! 

Today we're sharing our cards using the 1st release- the Newton's Antics set!  We love kitties at my house so this set is dearly loved!  I was inspired by Newton himself for my card today and created a card with a cute orange kitty:


I stamped Newton onto some speckled white cardstock along with his toy mouse.  I colored them in using a mix of copics and water based markers.  I added a little shadowing with some light gray ink and a water marker.


When I was finished coloring, I trimmed the cardstock down for my card, cutting around Newton's tail at the top.  I also stamped the cute sentiment.  The patterned papers are from the 6x6 About a Boy collection by Echo Park.

This card was so fun to make!  Coloring kitties might be one of my new favorite things! lol!  You'll love it- and you can win it!  Here are the details:
