Newton's Nook Designs July Release- Newton's Summer Vacation

Good morning!  I have another fun card for you today featuring another great set from this month's Newton's Nook Designs release!!  This one is a full set of Newton- doing what kitties dream of doing on their summer vacation!!  So cute! Hee!  Here is my card:


I chose the image where Newton is building a sand castle.  I just love this little image!  So imaginative and cute!  I stamped Newton and the bucket onto white cardstock and colored them with Copic markers.  I fussy cut around them and put them aside.  I stamped the sandcastle and the sand in the bucket onto Sahara Sand cardstock and used Copics to color them, too.  I added a poof of Crumb Cake marker with my Spritzer tool to give it a sandy look and cut them out as well.
Then I built my card.  I created a base out of light blue cardstock.  I cut the waves and sand panels using the Custom Panels die set by Avery Elle.  I layered the waves onto my card so they would peek out from behind the sand.  I stamped the bucket, sentiment, and Newton onto the sand and layered my colored pieces over the top.  I added some shadows around them to give them a little dimension.  I layered it on to my card using dimensional adhesive dots and then added a strip of striped paper to finish off the look


Isn't Newton just the cutest?

Great card. Not a lot of embellishing but the sand and sky cutouts make a great background for Newton and his castle.
