Newton’s Birthday Bash

 

Hey everyone! I am here again with my second guest post for Newton’s Nook!

I have been on a party card making kick apparently and this time I inked up Newton’s Birthday Bash! Probably because my kitty likes gift bags as much as he likes boxes.

Newtons Nook - Newtons Birthday Bash - Jessie Banks

Copics used:
Cat – YR24, YR23, YR21, 0
Bag – BV29, BV25, BV23, BV20
Blue – BG07, BG05, BG01, BG000
Purple – V09, V05, V01

I created the background using Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide inks. Adding splashes of water and some Perfect Pearls for in the background. Stamping part of the sentiment in dark blue ink and embossing the first part on black cardsock. I threw a few sequins on to finish it off!

Thank you to much for stopping by,
Hugz,
Jessie
