Hello! I'm excited to be joining Your Next Stamp this month to help celebrate their March release! Today we're all sharing something we've created with the release and then we'll be blog hopping later tonight at 10pm est when the new release is officially available!
For my card today I wanted to share what I created with the new Magical Unicorn stamp set! I pretty much had to ink this one up and colour it as soon as I opened my package... I am totally on board with the unicorn and rainbow trend right now and this is definitely a favourite unicorn image! ;)
To create my card, I stamped the unicorn image onto white cardstock and coloured her in with Copic markers. I decided to make her super colourful so I coloured both her mane and tail with rainbow colours and I love how it turned out!
I used some cool grey markers to add some shading and detail to her body. I wanted her to appear white and the little touches of grey actually make her look white and gives her a bit of dimension so she doesn't look so flat.
Once I had her all coloured, I used scissors to cut her out and then I set her aside to work on my background. To create the background, I added some Tumbled Glass Distress ink to a white cardstock panel and then I added some water droplets on top to give it a more textured look.
I also stamped some of the stars from the stamp set and heat embossed them with white embossing powder. I cut the panel out and adhered it onto a white scallop panel before adhering the whole thing to a grey card base.
I stamped the unicorn image in the center of the sky area (so I would still have the little mane and tail details that I lost when I cut it out) and then I adhered the coloured unicorn over top with liquid adhesive.
I completed the card by diecutting a cloud edge and stamping the sentiment directly on top with black ink. and I could create a colourful unicorn without sparkle so I added some clear Wink of Stella to her hair, hooves and unicorn.
Thanks so much for stopping by today for the new release preview! See you tonight for the hop! ;)
