Newton's Nook Cluck

Happy November 2023! I know we always say this, but where did the time go? It's now time for November's Paper Funday Challenge where Anything Goes! The sponsor I choose this month is Newton's Nook and their set called Cluck is well-loved in my craft room...I have both the stamp set and coordinating die:

I've made 3 birthday cards for this post: All stamped onto Ranger Ink Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Card Stock with Altenew's Obsidian Black Ink and heat embossed with Altenew's Crystal Clear Crisp Embossing Powder. They are watercolored with a mix of 2 watercolor sets I keep at my desk at work for lunchtime watercoloring: Altenew's 36 pan watercolor set and The Stamp Market's Color Crush Watercolor Palette
For this card, I cut a circle in Tim Holtz Distress HeavyWeight Card Stock. I just bought a pack of 50, since I love this card stock so much! It is 130 lb. and colors beautifully. I've ink blended on it, used alcohol markers and watercolored, too! I am making all of my card bases from it now for I love the weight.
Anyway, I cut the circle, ran it through My Big Shot with Crafty Meraki's Pagoni Mania Meraki Para-Dies. I love the "flame look" and I think it gives movement, too.
Next I made a panel on copy paper with some small cuts of red, orange and yellow card stock. This panel I glued to another white panel of the Distress Heavyweight Card Stock and then ran the complete panel through again with the same cover die. Matched up the design and glued my die cut of the 3 chickens. Sounds more complicated than it is!
The one below is just a stencil from my stash and ink blended and splattered with water. I popped up the panel with foam and another layer of white cardstock. I bit more clean and simple.
This last one I used free with purchase pattern paper from Honey Bee Stamps. I seldom use paper but the color was perfect and the I like the wood design for a hen house.
Love Newton's Nook Designs and their fun snarky sentiments! Thanks for joining me today and let's see your creative work at The Paper Funday Challenge.
