Today I’m sharing a card featuring some Purple Onion Designs stamps. I loooove this super cute critters designed by Stacey Yacula. This card is inspired by this one by Nichol Spohr. As soon as I saw her wonderful background I knew I had to buy the Tim Holtz Layering Woodland Stencil.
First, I stamped all the images on Bristol paper using Memento Tuxedo black ink. Next, I masked all the images and the lower part of the panel and blended Tumbled Glass and Dried Marigold Distress Inks. Then, I used the stencil to make the background, blending Evergreen Bough and Twisted Citron on top. To finish the background, I removed the mask on the lower part of the panel and masked the upper part to blend Twisted Citron for the grass.
Next, I removed the masks and color them using Faber-Castell Polychromos color pencils. As I suspected, Bristol paper is not the best choice for color pencils, but I managed to add some shading to the images and I’m quite happy with the result. For the sentiment I combined two Lawn Fawn stamp sets: “Year five” and “Gingham backdrops” and stamped it using Versafine Onyx black ink.
As a final touch I added some detail to the scarves with a white gel pen and some Wink of Stella to all the accessories.
I definitely have to practice more on making these kind of backgrounds, because I think this stencil is great for making scenes for all seasons.
I hope you like this card. Thanks for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day!
Today I have some very simple winter cards I made using Purple Onion Designs stamps designed by Stacey Yacula. I really love these stamps, these are probably the sweetest animals I have ever seen!
I ordered these stamps back in July, and when I mounted them I just had to stamp them!! I wanted to use those images, so I made some very quick and easy cards. I picked up some Lawn Fawn patterned papers (these are from the beachside petite paper pack) and color the images using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to match the papers. Then I trimmed three strips of white cardstock and I stamped some Lawn Fawn sentiments (from “Yeti, set, go” and “Baaah Humbug” stamp sets). The sentiments in the owl card and in the fox card are heat embossed with Ranger Black Sparkle embossing powder, and in the fox card I used Glossy Accents too.
For the bunny card I used a Fiskars border punch with the Threading Water cartridge on the white cardstock strip and stamped the sentiment with Lawn Fawn deep sea dye ink.
Finally I adhered everything together using foam tape and double sided tape and used some Wink of Stella in the animal clothes for a shiny final touch.
Although these are very simple and kind of “trial and error” cards, in the end I like how they turned out. I think my favorite is the one with the owl. What do you think? Do you like them?
Thaks for stopping by!
