Newton's Happy Mail ~ Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge #40

Time again for another Inky Paws Challenge!  For this one I chose the Newton's Happy Mail stamp set and dies.  I wanted to do a little watercoloring with my Caran D'Ache Supracolor pencils.  I haven't used them in a couple of months.  The theme this time was Sketch Challenge.

I stamped the image on Arches cold press watercolor paper with Versifine Onyx Black ink.  I did let that dry for a bit before getting started.  I selected just a few pencils from the set, colored the image, then simply used a wet brush to moisten and move around the pigment.

I cut Newton out with the coordinating die and mounted him on a piece of Neenah Solar White, rounded the corners, then sponged a little color just to lift the panel off the white card base.  I used some patterned paper from my stash and cut out to banners using the SSS Basic Banner Dies.  Had a piece of Lawn Trimmings lying on the table, so picked that up and added it to finish off the card.

Enjoy the video and thanks for stopping by!
