Newton's Nook Designs October Release - Day 4


Welcome back to the fourth day of Newton's Nook Designs October Release. Haven't the sets been AMAZING?!!  The awesomeness continues today with everyone's favorite kitty making his Christmas debut with 'Newton's Curious Christmas':


SOOOO many cute images in this set!  I was really drawn to the one with Santa's sleigh so I used it to make this card:


I tried to brayer the background, but after the mask moved on two different attempts I got tired of wasting paper and decided to create the background with lots of sponging instead.  With Newton & the moon masked I sponged Tempting Turquoise - Pacific Point - Brilliant Blue - Eggplant Envy - Night of Navy to create the sky.  Then I masked the sky and sponged So Saffron and Summer Sun to create the moonglow.  Then I cut several thin strips of Really Rust and punched them with a scalloped border punch and aligned them up to make the roof shingles (that was rather tricky, LOL).  And lastly I colored Newton with Copic markers in his signature ginger hues and cut him out and paper pieced him on the roof (I wanted his tail to stick out).   

Then I got playful and created this card in conjunction with Tuesday's 'Holiday Hounds' set:


Hee hee hee!  The happy-go-lucky dachshund 'innocently' marking the poor snowman with Newton peering from behind to witness the event and wonder if his doxie friend will make the 'Nice List' (hee hee hee I amuse myself!)  The snowman is completely covered in iridescent glitter (SOOOO sparkly in real life!) and his earmuffs are topped with red flock.  This was a fun card to make and I hope I didn't offend anyone with my quirky sense of humor.  :)
