I pulled out my favorite coloring tools - my Prismacolor colored pencils and gave Newton a bright red birdbath to play in with his new feathered friends.  To create the background, I used my new favorite technique - Smooshing! During the March release, I shared a quick tutorial on how to do this technique which I call the Distress Ink Smooshing Background Technique.

Once all the inking and coloring was completed, I used the Newton's Birdbath coordinating dies, to die cut the images and popped them up using some double sided foam adhesive.
