All the new goodies will be available for purchase this Friday the 14th over at the Newton's Nook Designs Shop!




Oh.My.Goodness...!!!
Jen did it again, her fabulous swirly series!
 Aren't these peacocks just amazingly gorgeous!!?
Here is my card...;-)


Newton's Nook Designs Beautiful Plumage Set - Naki Rager


This peacock is just beautiful, I am so very much in love with this stamp set :-)
Such delicate, intricate designs, it needed something bold behind it!

This beautiful flower from the Fanciful Florals set was heat embossed with clear on raspberry cardstock. The deep, yummy red picks up the little red dots on the bird as well. The peacock was heat embossed with light gold on watercolor paper, colored in with the Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolor set (Oh boy, did I have fun coloring this beauty with this set! I mixed so many greens and yellows and blues and purples to create new colors!), and die cut with the coordinating die. I also die cut from the green, deep blue, and poppy cardstock, and layered them all to give some dimention and some more colors from the side ;-)

I decided to make my own striped background with watercolor, and I picked the blue purple from the peacock. It ended up kind of patriotic {giggle} but I think it turned out beautiful ;-) I used 2 of the sentiment from the new set and added a little ampersand die cut. I just LOVE the sentiment "Be Colorful", I like to be different and unique (one of my friends once called me a rebel, I totally am! lol)
