Purple Onion Designs | Holiday Sale!

November 28, 2020

Hello friends! Purple Onion Designs is having a holiday sale right now where most rubber stamps are 25% off! I have a card to share with you today that features some adorable images from The Sweetest Little Town Collection illustrated by Stacey Yacula.

I created a single layer card using some Gina K. Designs Masking Magic Sheets to mask my images. I combined the Church (Horizon) Stamp along with the Miles & Beth (mother & child bear holding hands) Stamp. For my background, I blended some Wilted Violet, Milled Lavender, and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Inks.

While my images were still covered, I splattered the background with some diluted white paint as well as some diluted Wilted Lavender Distress Paint. I then removed my masking sheets and allowed my card to dry.

Once dry, I then stamped my sentiment with black ink and colored my images with Copic Markers.

Copic Color Combos Used:

  • Warm Grays: W00, W0, W2, W4
  • Violet: BV00, BV02, BV08
  • Teals/Green: G000, G00, G03, G08
  • Snow: B0000, B000, B01, B02

You can check out all of the stamps from Purple Onion Designs HERE!

    In addition to being magical in purple, your card is a wonder for all the masking you did to create this scene. You are a wonder as well. Wow! Beautiful card.
