Unicorn Rainbow Birthday

Hello there.  It’s a lovely sunny day here today!  Seems appropriate to share a rainbow birthday card I created for my niece who turned 6 this month.  Love any excuse to make rainbow cards.  😉

 

 

On a Neenah stitched rectangle panel, the unicorn was stamped with black Memento ink and masked.  Several wavy edge masks were die cut from masking paper with a snow drift die.  They were then used to mask off sections and distress inks in rainbow colours were blended with a mini blending tool.

 

 

Removed the unicorn mask and coloured with Copics.  The sentiment was black heat embossed with clear glitter embossing powder.

 

 

 

The panel was mounted with foam adhesive to a white top folding card base.  Clear shimmer was added to the rainbow and some sparkly clear sequins finished off the card.

Thank you for stopping by.  Unicorn kisses and rainbow wishes… 😂   I know it’s cheesy, but it’s just that kinda day.  😆

CASE Unicorn Diecuts

Hi there.  Today I have another mythical creature card to share. This time it’s a unicorn. I have done a couple of unicorn cards already, but this is another different unicorn.  In fact I have five different sets of unicorns and there are two more sets that I would like to buy, but I am holding off – for now. Can you tell I love unicorns and mythical creatures?  *lol*

First, I die cut a stitched rectangle twice from white cardstock. I took one of them and die cut a stitched cloud edge. Next I die cut the stitched rainbow from hot press watercolor paper and watercolored the four smallest rings with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.  Normally I would add the color directly to the paper then blend out with a watercolor brush.  However, this time I wanted a color that was not in my set. To create my own custom color, I scribbled two different colors on a craft mat and mixed them together.  I tested the color on a scrap piece of paper and once I was satisfied with the color, I picked the color up with my watercolor brush and applied it to the die cut.

I stamped the unicorn on hot press watercolor paper and also colored it with my Zigs.  I used the matching die to die cut it out and popped it up with foam adhesive.

I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment and added a few white/pinkish sequins.  To finish, I added some clear Wink of Stella to the rainbow and the colored areas of the unicorn for some shimmer.
