Purple Onion Designs | Treat Yourself!

Hello there, today I have another card to share using the new Sunshine Lake collection from Purple Onion Designs. Today I am using the super cute Marigold and Juliet, who are enjoying their ice creams!

I started off by stamping Juliet (Bird at Picnic Table) and Marigold (Bunny with Ice Cream) on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then coloured them using Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area). I then fussy cut them out using scissors.
I took an A2 white card base and placed the Taylored Expressions Rectangle Masking Stencil over the top. I then blended green ink at the bottom for grass. I used Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks. I then took the MFT Cloud Stencil and placed this towards the top. Using Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink, I blended on clouds, moving the stencil down as I went.
The stencils were removed and the sentiment from the Sunshiny Sentiments Set stamped in the top right hand corner. I then added the images on top with foam tape. To finish off, I added a few Hero Hues Enamel Dots and white gel pen highlights to the images.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I really do appreciate it. I hope you have a wonderful day!


  1. What cardstock are you using? I find that the cardstock/paper is critical to getting the desired effect from whatever means is used for coloring. I'm in search for just the right surface for Copic and Distress Ink blending.

    1. Hi Karen, I apologise for the delay in replying. I am using Papertrey Ink Stampers Select White Cardstock. I apologise because I usually add it to my supplies list but must have forgot on this occasion. Thank you for visiting.
