Newton's Nook Designs May Release - Newton's Sick Day

it's the most wonderful time of the month! today starts the May release week with Newton's Nook Designs! i just LOVE release weeks!



today, the whole DT is showcasing the new, super adorable and comforting Newton's Sick Day stamp set!! don't you just LOVE this set? it's sooooo cute! and, speaking as someone who is currently sick, i feel better just looking at these images! you can totally use this to scrapbook, create a project life type spread, gift tags and, of course, cards! all of the new sets will be available for purchase on May 15th, right here!


for my first card, i used the adorable nurse newton!



i colored the image in with copics and then added some dots for a little texture to his fur! i heat embossed the sentiment in white and added some lovely white sequins! 


the background was created with some distress stains, water and patterned paper! love it!

my 2nd card is my favorite!


i created a sort of mask with some glue and seal in stripes on my white cardstock. then once it was dry, i added watercolor with some distress inks! i love how it looks! it's not perfect, but it was FUN to make!


i colored that poor, sick newton in with copics and popped him up and then added some black splatters!
