Hello again! I hope you guys are having a great week so far! I’ve been having a lot of fun these last couple of days because of The Daily Marker’s 30 Day Coloring Challenge. I have been keeping up with the challenge and been coloring everyday so far. I know we’re barely on day 4 but if you know me…. Anyway, you should really check out The Daily Marker site and look up #TheDailyMarker30Day2 on Instagram and see all the neat coloring going on.
For day 3 of the challenge I colored the unicorn from the Spectrum stamp set from Paper Smooches and decided to use it for a card. This is my third card using Spectrum and all because of this little unicorn, it’s adorbz! Also, I will be submitting this to the Paper Smooches SPARKS Anything Goes Challenge.
I wanted the unicorn on top of a cloud and so when I do masking, I like to do it with masking tape. I stamp my image on a couple of pieces of tape, depending on how wide the image is. I know this might seem like more work but it’s easier for me to cut each strip and really because I have masking tape and no masking paper. I only cut the bottom portion of the unicorn’s body because I knew the cloud was going to only reach the top of it’s legs. I placed the tape on the stamped unicorn and stamped the cloud on top with my MISTI.I just love how crisp the images look when stamped with the MISTI.
I also decided to do partial die cutting. I cut the top of the unicorn after I colored it.
Then I turned it around and cut the bottom of the cloud.
I made an ombre background using Mini Distress Inks and sprinkled a little water on it. Here’s a tip, in order to make sure I masked the edges the same length, I used graph paper underneath.
To finish it off, I colored the unicorn horn and cloud with clear Wink of Stella and stamped the rest of the sentiment inside the card.
Thanks for stopping by!
