Flower Shop

Happy Sunday, all! We'll be watching Super Bowl, but as always, I am mostly there for the ads. =) Here is a card that I made using some super fun images from Purple Onion Designs.


I played with the Hometown Collection illustrated by Stephanie Ackerman and created a little scene. Each of the shops from the collection comes with a couple of matching sentiments.


I stamped Flower Shop, Post Office and Ice Cream Parlor on watercolor paper with archival ink. The images are then colored with watercolor pencil and a water brush.


The sentiment is from Flower Shop set.

That's all for today. For more inspirations using stamps from Purple Onion Designs, please visit Purple Onion Designs Blog. Have a happy Super Bowl Sunday, my friends! =)
