Newton's Nook August Release Day 1

Hello all! I'm so excited for the latest Newton's Nook Design release because the new sets are awesome. How cute are these little critters from Hanging Around?! To create the background I turned the cloud upside down and stamped the back so it would be a solid cloud and embossed it. After I had the embossed clouds I use Distress Stain in Salty Ocean to color the background and the embossed clouds resisted the stain. Then I colored three of the adorable animals from the set with my Inktense Pencils and fussy cut them.While this card did take quite, awhile with all the embossing and fussy cutting, I think it will be perfect for a friend going through a tough time. I love that this encouragement sentiment is general enough to work for many encouragement occasions. See the stamp set below and read to see how you can win it!
