Hello {Purple Onion Designs}

Today's card features images illustrated for Purple Onion Designs by Stacey Yacula.

I stamped Oscar (fox) and the kite from the Balloon, Party Hat and Kite set onto Copics X-Press It cardstock, masking off a portion of the string below the bows. After coloring with Copic markers, adding white highlights to the fox with a Gelly Roll pen, I fussy cut out the images. To prepare the background I stamped the kite image onto a watercolor cardstock piece to just the below the bows. I then watercolored with Zig Kuretake Clean Color brush markers to represent grass and sky. Using the fox image as a guide I used a waterproof pen to continue drawing the kite string on both the background and the stamped piece. The sentiment from the Sweet Occasions Sentiment set was stamped directly onto the panel and the images attached with foam tape.
