Be a Unicorn

Hello there. I have a cute card to share today using a new die from Waffle Flower:

I knew I wanted to play with this die as soon as it arrived, and took the opportunity to use the current colours at Color Throwdown.

I die cut the unicorn, then added some Spectrum Noir purple sparkle as you see. Whilst that purple was drying, I turned to the background.

I used Distress Oxide ‘Mowed Lawn‘ and blended using my blending brushes, adding some Gansai Tambi green sparkle splatters – it’s all about the sparkle on this card.

I created a frame in grey card stock by using some rectangle dies and adhered this to the green layer. The sentiment is stamped using grey ink, placed as you see, and the unicorn sat on top of the sentiment strip.

I did take some warm grey Copics and tried to add some shading to the edge of the unicorn – not sure I like it, might have been better left alone – but there we are.

I glued the unicorn to the green layer, making sure the arms and the wings were free, and added some Tonic Nuvo drops in ‘mercury‘ for the eyes and nostrils, slotting the purple glittery present in the hands.

I think I’ll be playing with this die some more, using perhaps rainbow colours – of course the glittery rainbow colours, and I’m sure you’ll be seeing that here.
