Happy holidays {Purple Onion Designs}

Hi, crafty friends. I have a simple holiday card to share with you today, featuring Birch from Purple Onion Designs. Christmas might be 8 months away, but with the weather we’ve been having, it feels like it could be just around the corner. And even though I long for warmer weather, I still love creating holiday cards with Stacey Yacula’s cute critters.

I stamped and masked Birch before stamping the Snowy Fence behind him. I colored in the ground, the adorable bunny and the snowy fence with Copics, before covering them with masks so I could air brush the sky.

I used a gradient of purples for the sky, starting with BV17 at the top and working my way down to B60 at the very bottom. B60 is technically a blue color, but the entire B60 family has a purple tinge, making B60 the perfect choice for the lightest color in the sky. I then used the Big Happy Holidays die from Mama Elephant to die cut 6 layers from white cardstock that I stacked for a super dimensional sentiment that I placed in the sky. I decided to keep the card very clean and simple and didn’t add any embellishments at all.

Lots of cool tones for this one (the markers after the gap are the ones I used for the air brushing).
