Newton's Nook Designs - Mahalo

Hi crafty friends! Today I'm up on the Newton's Nook Designs blog sharing a fun beach-themed card using the new Aloha Newton set.
Mahalo by Handmade by Yuki | Aloha Newton by Newton's Nook Designs
I started off by die cutting smooth white card stock using two stitched squares dies to create a frame for the focal panel. I stamped the cute image of Newton on a hammock onto the main focal panel. I then extended the lines of the sand with my Copic Multiliner pen. I then colored the entire scene with Copic Markers. I stamped a canvas background onto a kraft card base for a subtle tone-on-tone look. For the sentiment, I used the banner die from the Garden Window Diet Set and layered a piece of dark brown card stock behind the sentiment banner to help make it pop.

I had so much fun coloring this image and love the way this card turned out! I hope you were inspired and be sure to swing by the NND blog for more inspiration. Thanks again for stopping by and have a wonderful day! ♥
