Today's Featured guest is

Audrey Tokach

My name is Audrey Tokach. I am a happily married wife, and mom to two amazing boys. I was born and raised in the Philadelphia suburbs but became a Florida transplant about 17  years ago.  I am an animal lover and coffee addict.  When I am not busy taking care of my boys, or my little animal menagerie,  you can find me making cards or coloring. I have a fun, whimsical style, and I love bright colors and cutesy images. I can’t live without my Copic markers, Distress ink and Oxides, or my watercolors, but I love experimenting with other coloring mediums as well. I am so excited to be joining the Newton's Nook team as a guest this month!  I'd love for you to follow me on social media if you like what you see!  I can be found on Instagram or on my blog, Pink Ink Originals. Thanks so much to Newton's Nook for having me! :)

Here's what Audrey created:

Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Week - Santa Card by Guest Designer Audrey Tokach | Dear Santa Stamp Set and Cascading Stars Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Here comes Santa Claus! This adorable card features our Dear Santa Stamp Set. Audrey colored the image of Santa holding a giant stack of gift. Her color combo is so fun with traditional red and green with added brown kraft wrapping paper and pops of teal and pink! She also added fun white accents using a white gel pen. She also stamped three additional little gifts using the same Dear Santa Stamp Set and colored them to coordinate. For her card today, she fussy cut the images out by hand, but if you don't like to fussy cut, there is a coordinating Dear Santa Die Set available in our shop.

For her background she created a super fun starry sky using our Cascading Stars Stencil with red ink. She added extra ink to the edges and faded it to the middle to highlight the spot where she added Santa. She also added some gold to some of the stars to give a special shimmery touch! Who doesn't love a little sparkle for the holidays?  The sentiment "Here comes Santa Claus" that was also stamped using our Dear Santa Stamp Set. She used a gold marker to fill in the letters in Santa too, perfect for coordinating with the gold stars! Do you like the little strip of green striped paper up the side? That is from our Meowy Christmas Paper Pad

Thanks so much, Audrey for being our guest today! She will be back for our Deck the Halls with Inky Paws blog hop on Friday, December 3rd. Until then, you can visit her at her blog, Pink Ink Originals to read more about her adorable projects and say hello!
