Purple Onion Designs May 2019 Release – Sunny Meadow Fair

I’m delighted to be sharing today’s post as a guest designer for the new Purple Onion Designs stamp release! I’ve been a fan of their stamps for years, as I love Stacey Yacula’s illustration style, so I’ve been having a LOT of fun with the new release.

The scene building fun to be had with this collection is endless, especially mixing things up with older collections. I’ve already created several little scenes that I’m looking forward to sharing with you. The good news is that from release day today 1st May 2019 until 15th May 2019 you can get a whopping 30% off if you purchase the entire collection HERE. I know I’m a “gotta have it all” kind of girl, so I love it when stamp companies make that decision easier! You can of course purchase all the stamps individually too HERE.

Time to share my first card with you, along with details of the Copic markers I used to colour the scene.

Pinky & The Cotton Candy Cart Scene Card

Stamps Used: Pinky (pig), Cotton Candy Cart, Fairgrounds Background, Carnival/Fair Marquee Sentiments, Fair Accessories

I had an absolute blast creating scenes and colouring them. Totally in my element. I stamped the foreground elements in my favourite black ink for use with Copics (MFT Extreme Black), then stamped the background using a softer grey ink to help it read as being further away. This is a really simple way to help give the impression of distance, along with keeping the colours in the background less vibrant.

The scene was stamped on my preferred paper for Copic colouring – Make it Colour Blending Card.

I used one of the stamps from the Fair Accessories set to stamp one of my cardstock layers to create some additional interest on the card front.

NOTE: remember when you are creating a masked and stamped one layer scene, to work from the foreground back. Stamp whatever you want to appear at the front first, then mask and work backwards from there.
