Newton's Nook Designs' 3 Year Celebration - July Release - Aloha Newton & Hibiscus Die Set


Welcome back!  Have you been enjoying all the crafty awesomeness Jen has created for us this release?  Day 4 continues with everyone's favorite kitty and pretty stand alone die to please you floral enthusiasts.  Introducing 'Aloha Newton':



And The Hibiscus stand alone die set:



I had trouble deciding which of the adorable Newton images to use, but I settled settled on the one in the hammock to create this card:

I had fun creating a tone-on-tone background with the outline image of the pretty little hibiscus flower.  Speaking of hibiscus flowers I really love the detail of the Hibiscus dies:

This time I sponged the background to create a graduated effect - which did you prefer - this sponged one or the brayered one yesterday?  I think I prefer the brayer, the colors were richer, though they REALLY soaked that cardstock, had to hit it with a heat gun before embossing it was so wet!
