Now that we have that out of the way let's talk about Newton's Nook! Today we are showing off the gorgeous new set Beautiful Wings.
I love how intricate these flying beauties are! It reminded me of Zentangle designs so I decided to embrace that idea!
I started by stamping the largest butterfly but only the wings. I created a border along the right hand side of my card. I didn't overlap them so no masking required! To fill in the gaps I used a copic safe black pen to draw diagonal lines. It added to the overall "doodling" look I was going for.
I picked out a rainbow of copic markers to color the design. When you're blending different colors be careful to pick colors that have similar numbers. I tried to stick to the 02-04 range. There are exceptions to every rule though. For the BG I used a 45 which doesn't sound like it would work but it totally does. bottom line is try it out before you apply it your card :) Save yourself from frustration.
After the colors were down I used some grays to add a shadow and then busted out the white gel pen. This let me add a bit more detail without taking away from the beautiful black outline. A strip of chevron paper down the opposite side was added for balance before I added my stamped panel using some craft foam. A few sequins finished it off!
There is tons more on the Newton's Nook blog. I hope you'll head over and see :)
Thanks for stopping by!
