Happy Winter Forest Friends by Julian Charlton for Purple Onion Designs

Hey there!  I have a new slimline card for you today featuring stamps from the new Julian Charlton illustrated collection for Purple Onion Designs. These are the 'Happy Winter Forest Friends'.   This card uses the open images (ready for you to colour) but there are closed 'silhouette' images too, so check out my blogpost from yesterday with the Silhouette closed images.

The card was created by ink blending the background with Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress Oxide Inks.   I added snowflakes by hand in a sort of simplistic/cartoonish fashion since I thought the quirkiness worked with the style of the sweet stamps.  The background panel was applied to the card base.  I then used a 'hill' die from my collection and cut the two banks of snow from white cardstock then ink blended the edge using residual ink in Broken China remaining on my blending tool from creating the background.  These were adhered to the background.

The images were stamped on Copic friendly cardstock using Memento Ink in Rich Cocoa.  They were coloured with Copic markers and fussy cut, backed with foam tape and applied to the scene.  The sentiment was stamped on a strip and also foam backed and applied and the bird perched playfully on top.

The finishing touches were limited to highlighting points on the images with a white gel pen and using Stickles glitter in 'Crystal' to add that essential Christmas twinkle to the project.

I'll be back before you know it with a new project!

Happy crafting!
