Ink It Up with Leigh Penner: Wishing You Unicorns
Oh my goodness, I am sorry this post is late! I have been so scatterbrained lately and completely forgot to get it ready. Leigh Penner and I post twice a month, on the second and fourth Wednesdays, to share a card using uninked stamps. I chose to use this adorable Magical Unicorns set by My Favorite Things.
I cut white and black cardstock with the Sunshine Layers dies by Wplus9 Design Studio. On the white piece, I stamped a random pattern of sunbursts and colored the centers with a Y13 Copic marker. I then embellished the suns using Lemon Drop and Sugar Cube iridescent glitters by Martha Stewart. You know I love all that sparkle!
I stamped and colored the unicorn image using various Copic markers. I added silver Wink of Stella to the horn and hooves. The wing is a separate piece of cardstock that I glittered with Sugar Cube. I cut a white cloud with the Clouds 1 & 2 dies by Papertrey Ink, did some shading with a C1 Copic marker, and covered the whole thing with clear Wink of Stella.
I stamped a sentiment from Magical Unicorns onto a Double-Ended Banner die cut. I layered a second banner underneath cut from Spring Rain cardstock. Once I finished all the bits and pieces, I adhered it all to a Spring Rain card base. It turned out super cute!
Make sure you hop over to Leigh's blog, To the Full, to see her Ink It Up post!
