Purple Onion Designs

Just thought I'd pop in and share a couple more Purple Onion Designs cards. In the upcoming weeks, I will be sharing my POD cards on Saturdays. I will still be sharing in the same "Inspired by..." format I always do---featuring inspiration from other POD design team members. Anywho, today here are a couple by yours truly. :) They both feature THIS great blossom stamp.
For the next card, I used distress ink and the word "bloom" from THIS set to create the background. I inked the blossom with distress ink, spritzed with water, then added Distress Stickles.

Thanks again for visiting! See you tomorrow with our next "Inspired by..." stamper. Let me tell you, she is one AMAZING artist. Simply AMAZING. ;)
