Inky Paws Challenge #32 - Follow Your Arrow!

hi hi hi!

today is the start of a new Inky Paws Challenge over on the Newton's Nook Designs Blog!!
this time, it's all about arrows!!

i decided to create a layout with all of the adorable little arrow dies from the Points and Plumes Dies set released last week! LOOOOOOVE them!

I started by watercoloring a piece of cardstock with Pumice Stone and Hickory Smoke Distress Inks! Then i die cut out a bunch of arrows! 
Once the arrows were die cut, I wrapped some embroidary thread around them!! LOOOOVE that look! I can't take credit for it though - that's Wilna Furstenberg lift all the way!

I also used some modeling paste and a chevron stencil to add even more texture to the background!

I really love how this layout turned out! And my little Menn playing hockey in old garage is just so sweet! My littlest Mann LOVES dressing up (in ANYTHING) and I couldn't resist snapping a picture when he started to play hockey as Captain Hook! Look out Neverland! Ha!!

Be sure to head over to the Newton's Nook blog where so you can play along for your chance to win some Newton's Nook of your own!!
