Newton's Nook Designs' August Release ~ Day 1


Welcome to the first day of sneak peeks from Newton's Nook Designs' August Release!  Jen starts the release off with a preview of the sweetest little mermaid set you have ever seen!  Introducing 'Mermaid Crossing':


I used the image of her giving a little seahorse a tender hug:

Mermaid for Each Other card by Crafty Math Chick | Mermaid Crossing by Newton's Nook Designs

I decided to have a little fun and color her hair a non-traditional color (she's a mermaid after all - who knows what color their hair is?  It could be purple!) and paired the image with some patterned paper that reminded me of the scales on a mermaid's tail from a past Imaginisce collection I was delighted to find at Tuesday Morning years ago.  

Would you like to win 'Mermaid Crossing' stamp set?
This set will be given away to ONE lucky winner!!
