Hi, crafty friends. I have a springtime card to share today. Can you tell I’m sick of this cold, wet, snowy, rainy weather? This is Anna from Purple Onion Designs, riding her bike in the country side with a stone wall separating her from fields of green.
I love how happy this mouse looks riding that bike. Stacey Yacula has a way of creating characters that really come to life, I’m such a big fan of her style.
I stamped Anna, added a mask, then stamped the stone wall. Both were stamped with Extreme Black ink from My Favorite Things, which is a Copic friendly ink. I then used second generation stamping with the country side background, this time with Memento Espresso Truffle ink for a somewhat softer look.
I colored in my scene using Copics, then stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment from the Around the Town sentiment set.
I used a white Gelly Roll 05 to create the white dot “flowers” in the background and added my panel to a top folding white card base I created. The finished card measures 6 x 4″.
This is a very mail friendly card. No embellishments, it’s almost one layer and sooo simple.
Quite a few Copics, but that usually happens with these full scene cards I create with Purple Onion stamps.
