Hello friend!

Wir ihr wisst, liebe ich die Stempel von Purple Onion Designs, und zwar nicht nur, weil die jeweiligen Motive so niedlich sind, sondern auch, weil sie sich so vielfältig verwenden lassen. Man kann unendlich verspielte Szenen damit gestalten, wilde Aquarellpanels oder schlichte CAS-Karten. Und genau so eine habe ich heute gemacht:
As you all know I love Purple Onion Design stamps. And I do so not only because their images are so cute but also because they are so versatile. You can easily create lots of cheerful little scenes with them, artsy watercolor panels or simple CAS cards. Today's card is one of the latter category.

Für die Koloration habe ich nach langer, langer Zeit wieder einmal meine Twinklings aus dem Schrank geholt. Das sind schimmerende Aquarellfarben, die einen feinen Glitzerglanz über jedes Motiv legen. Im Foto unten habe ich versucht, den mal im Bild festzuhalten. Den Hintergrund habe ich mit Distress Ink gewischt und anschließend mit Perfect-Pearl-Spray besprüht, damit auch ein wenig Glitzer abbekommt.
To color in the images I've dusted of my Twinklings again after a very long time. These are shimmering watercolors which let all images shine wonderfully. I've tried to capture this effect on the image below. The background is sponged with Distress Inks and to make it shimmer a bit as well I spritzed it with a bit of custom made Perfect Pearls spray.
