Newton's adventure abroad brought him the true love he was hoping to find. She is everything he ever dreamed love would be. Naughty Newton, however, knows he shouldn't leave graffiti on the Parisian walls, but his heart was singing with love and he just had to let it out! And look at her, so sweet, blushing beautifully at her handsome beau's romantic gesture. She knows he is the one for her! Oh yes, she brought him balloons, not just one, but three to proclaim her affection!
Just a few notes about the design. The background was dry embossed with a brick embossing folder and I pounced versamark ink lightly over the raised texture. It was then wet embossed with Ranger "Brick" embossing powder. It leaves a very rough, flat texture, and feels like real brick. The powder includes bits of gold and rose colors along with black and reds. The Penny Black heart from the set, "So Very Much" was then embossed with white embossing powder over the brick wall. A gel pen was used to go over some of the words.
Newton and his love (from Newton Dreams of Paris) were stamped and embossed on watercolor paper and colored with distress markers. Wink of Stella was added to her sweater, just because every Valentine's sweater needs some sparkle! The "love" sentiment was die cut four times and adhered together on pink shimmer paper and the clear balloon is backed with transparency to allow the "love" to shine.
I am submitting this to the challenge at Newton's Nook #17 Inky Paws Challenge, "Use A Heart Shape."
May your days always be filled with love,
