Let Your Dreams Take Flight

 I actually have three cards in this post as I am so far behind in what I wanted to do and don't want to be inundating you with post after post after post so will maybe do two today.
This post has a Unicorn Balloon and a couple of cards using the same Sentiment.

For this card I have used a digital black and white image and coloured it with Copics and added the string for the balloon and and few extra stars. 

When I saw this unicorn on another blog I just thought it was so cute so I purchased him and a balloon reindeer but thats for another post. I couldn't resist colouring in the colours of the rainbow. This is Elysha's favourite colouring style so I know she will love this card/ After colouring I added a blue outline then added dots to the outline. I coloured the stars with gold gel pen and the unicorn horn is also gold gel pen. 

Finished it off with the black string for the balloon and the  stamped 
sentiment. Thought this card would be idea for a few challenges I wanted to cover this week.

 This next card is for another couple of challenges and was a real quicky. I actually did the three cards within 30 minutes, some days it all just falls into place and being single layer without embellishments it makes for a quick card.

I love this sentiment and wanted to make it the feature of the card so stamped it first. Then looked at my other stamps for an idea. I was thinking human and looked at Gus as I have a few of grumpy old Gus but I had just received this stamp which is in a set of this cute little chickie in different poses and with sentiments. He is from Stamping Bella and I love him. Its that real 'oooh well I just cant do anymore look', for me anyway.

I have only used the stamp from this set and the sentiment is from Serendipity Stamps.
I have coloured the chickie and bricks with copics.

No other embellishments as I liked what I have.

This next card uses the same sentiment but this time I have put it with my Hamster.

I coloured the hamster with copics using lots of dots to give the illusion of fur.

He is so cute and I have done him with this sentiment before but this time I fussy cut him and mounted on some dimensional foam.

There you go quick cards and quick post.

Oh my goodness, that unicorn balloon is so neat! I like how you colored it! And the sentiment on the other two cards is fantastic. I giggled at the one with the chick. I felt like that last week for sure! LOL Have a great day.

All three cards are wonderful. I love the rainbow balloon with a unicorn, looking for the digi-stamp, but never found. The second card amazed me your ingenuity. You had combined two different stamps into one coherent whole. Excellent work. The third card is so sweet with the hamster. You are amazing.
