distress paints and newton's nook!

hey there!

today i'm over on the newton's nook blog! and i have this super fun card to share!

ooooo, ahhhhh!

ha ha!
i think i may have mentioned during release week that i LOOOOOVE the new love grows stamp set! LOVE IT!!

for this card, i heat embossed in white, all over a card sized sheet of vellum. 
then i in the WORLD am i going to add color? 

there are a bunch of options to color on vellum, but this time, i decided to layer the vellum over some distress paint splatters! so i splattered three distress inks onto a cardsized white panel (squeezed lemonade, picked raspberries and dried marigold) into the approximate areas my little flowers were on the vellum sheet!

then i attached the vellum! then came my next problem - HOW DO I ADD A SENTIMENT?! lol!!

alas, i decided to go with NO sentiment - something i NEVER do! but this dang set i just SO versitle that it could literally be used for almost any occassion! so i added a bow and some pinks and boom! beautiful card, ready to be used for anything! :)

what was your favorite stamp set from the newton's nook release?
it's so hard to choose!


thank you SO much for taking the time to comment! just like that, you made my day! :D
