Newton's Nook Designs May Release - Winston's BBQ

yahoo! for another day of newton's nook may release!

today's set is called Winston's BBQ, and it's another PERFECT set for everyday, and even masculine, cards! it's perfect for tags, layouts, cards, anything! and the best news is, all of the sets will be available for purchase may 16th here! :)

i LOVE the images in this set!

winston with a chef hat?! enough said!
for my first card, i created my own background!

i used the hamburger image and stamped it over and over in the old paper distress ink!

i colored the grill with copics and popped it up over the background, and i LOVE how much it pops against that monochromatic background! 

and then...giggle...i had a little fun with the ketchup/beer bottle!

for some reason, i thought of this sentiment, and it just wasn't going to leave my head until i made it! ha ha!!

the little beer bottle is popped up and i just used some brown paint to make the watercolor/spilt beer! ha ha!
