Hi friends! Today I'm sharing a magical card made with the Whittle Rainbow Unicorn Kit. This Kit is amazing because it's got the all the dies you need to create this scene card and lots of others. I didn't even use all the dies that are included in the kit.... AND it also includes a stamp set with lots of cute sentiments!
I envisioned the cute flying unicorns perched on clouds and flying among the stars! How magical is that?
I started with a background of ombre Distress Oxide Ink, blending from the lightest to the darkest using three shades of ink.. Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and finally Blueprint Sketch. Next I splattered the inky panel with water, some watered down Chipped Sapphire (just touch your ink pad to your glass or silicone craft mat, dip your paint brush in water and mix with the ink and spatter!), and finally some white ink (I use Dr. Ph. Martins Bleed Proof White Ink).
I cut out my pieces and then lay them out on a piece of clear plastic the size of my card base. This helps me decide what image to put where before I commit and adhere it in place. I also like that I can slip the inky panel underneath the clear plastic.. maybe blue isn't the best color? where should I stamp my sentiment? etc.
The bottom of the design seemed like the perfect place for the sentiment. I like to use Versafine Onyx Black ink because its great for details, and it's not water based. That means the ink will sit on top of the inky background and not soak into the paper. This also means that it's going to stay wet longer, so make sure not to smear it!
I added lots of details to my unicorns including double cut manes (one from solid cardstock, one from glitter cardstock), colored cardstock muzzles and tails, and google eyes to help bring them to life.
I really love all the stitched details on the dies and I know this card is sure to make you smile!
