Newton's Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge #18 - One-Layer Card

This is my second post of the day. For the Simon Says Stamp "Hop To It!" release post, click here.

Happy Friday! Today is the start of a new Inky Paws Challenge over on the Newton's Nook Designs Blog. This challenge is all about creating a one-layer project. Although I really do love using dimensions on my projects, one-layer projects can also be a lot of fun to create too and my favorite thing about them is they're postal-friendly (yay!).

Inky Paws Challenge 18 by Handmade by Yuki | "Newton's Day Dream" by Newton's Nook Designs

For today's card, I used the "Newton's Day Dream" stamp set to create a cute one-layer scene. I started by stamping my sentiment first to make sure it was straight and centered. I actually ended up having to make this card twice because after the first attempt, I stamped the sentiment completely crooked after I had already inked the background :(. So I made sure that didn't happen the second time around! I then masked off the area for my scene using painters tape. I stamped and masked Newton and the little butterfly. I used Simon Says Stamp "Sea Glass" dye ink for the sky and Simon Says Stamp "Fern" dye ink for the grass. I then colored the stamped images using Copic Markers.

Newton: Y21, Y23, Y35, R01, R02
Flowers: BV01, BV02, Y00
Butterfly: V12, V15

Aside from the little hiccup I had in the beginning, this card was pretty quick and easy to make. I hope today's card has inspired you and I can't wait to see what you create!
