Winston's Lemonade Stand

Hi everyone!  Today I wanted to share a cute card I made for Newton's Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge #127 - Summer Theme.  

I started by die cutting all of the background pieces and inking them with Distress Oxide Inks.  I used the large scalloped rectangle die from Newton's Nook Designs Flags and Frames die set.  I then inked it with Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers.  I die cut the grass with NND Land Borders die, and inked it with Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn.  Next, I used NND Sky Scene Builder and die cut the sun.  I used Dried Marigold and Spiced Marmalade for the center, and Squeezed Lemonade for the rays.  After getting everything cut out and inked up, I used NND Cloudy Sky stencil with glitter paste.  

After completing my background pieces, I stamped out images from the now retired, Freshly Squeezed stamp set, and colored them with Copic markers.  I fussy cut the images out, which I am TERRIBLE at doing!  You will definitely be able to see my mistakes with the scissors!  I made little slits by Winston's hands so I could tuck that lemon slice behind them and make it look like he is really holding it.  

Copic Colors used for Winston:
  • E13, E15, E25, E29
  • E31, E33, E35
  • Ears - R81, R83, R85
  • Nose - N8, N9
Lemonade Stand:
  • Y21, YR23, E34
  • RV000, RV00, RV02
  • Y000, Y00, Y02
  • B000, B00, B01
  • Cups - BG11, BG23, BG13
    • V01, V12, V04
  • Lemons - Y00, Y02, Y08, Y19
  • Basket - YG01, YG03, YG06
  • W0, W1
  • Ears - R81, R83, R85
  • Nose - R81
  • Pitcher - C0
  • Lemonade - Y000, Y00
  • Lemons - Y02, Y08, Y19

I don't know the exact colors I used on the flowers and butterflies because they were left over pieces I had from previous projects.  I finished off this card by adding white gel pen to Winston's eyes, glitter with a glitter pen for some sparkle, and glossy accents for some shine!  Despite my fussy cutting mistakes, I just love how cute Winston is selling his lemonade!  I hope you all enjoyed my card today!
