It's Kaja from Kajcyika crafts! I am back with a new card as a April guest designer here at Newton's nook blog.
I decided that I want to use one of the stamps of Newton, since they are all so adorable. The one I had chosen is called Newton's Happy Mail!
Take a look of what I have created:
As promised, I have a video tutorial for you. So make sure you check it out! :)
First thing that I had to do was to decide which paper I am gonna use. I decided to go with Neenah desert storm and normal white card stock. I diecutted the rectangle in the middle and it was time to color our Newton!
I stamped the image from Newton's Happy Mail stamp set on my Derwent watercolor paper. I used the colors of ZIG markers that are really muted down to color the image, since I think that bright colors and kraft cardstock don't really go together. I added some gray lines on the Newton's head to make him a bit more realistic and interesting. In the end I just added some more details on the mailbox with my white gel pen.
To make the background a bit less boring, I stamped some paws using Distress Tea dye ink. The paws are from the same Newton's Happy Mail set and I stamped them in the random order.
Of course we also need a sentiment and I went with embossed 'special delivery' phrase in white on my black cardstock.
The last thing was to glue everything together. On all the pieces I used double sided tape and I added some foam rectangles on Newton to make it a bit more dimensional.
That's it for today. Hope that you like what I have created and that you will join me next Monday!
