Some Newton’s Nook loving. Spectrum Noir February Challenge.

Hello lovelies, how are you all ? I have been totally lazy today and all I have done is printed off some photos and framed them…that really is all I have done and it is 3:30pm here ! But on the plus side I have also been online window craft shopping, which is always fun. 
Today I am sharing with you a super cute card featuring the newest release from Newton’s Nook which Is for the February Challenge over at Spectrum Noir. 
The theme for this months challenge is Colours of love- Use Red or Pink. It doesn’t have to be a Valentines card, it just has to have either red or pink on it somewhere and use a Spectrum Noir Medium…easy or what !
Now if you haven’t ever seen  Newton’s Nook stamps then where have you been, they made brilliant fun stamps and I was SO lucky to win a set from their latest release. 
For my card I have created a background using two of the heart stamps from the set, the bigger hearts I wanted kinda a distressed look so I blotted some of the ink before stamping…not sure if it turned out how i thought it would, but i kinda like it. 
I coloured the image….just how adorable is this image ? with my Spectrum Noir Markers and then cut out using a heart die by Die’sire, I then very lightly inked around the edge using Distress Ink in Spun Sugar.
The frame is by Memory Box and I thought went perfectly with this set. 
I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder. 
I then finished off with some sequins (hey i just can’t leave the sequins alone) and a couple of tiny gems.
 I really had so much fun with this card, I love the stamp set and cannot thank the guys at Newton’s Nook enough for it.
