I have four cards to share today so lot of photos and you know how I love to waffle on so quick grab a coffee then come back and we can get into it.......
Well, I just love this saying, I think its ME, I'm sure I'm the Rainbow Sprinkle or at least the Mixed Nutsssss 'always look for the bright side of life', always looking for ways to bring a smile or at least a laugh or two or three.
I bought one of the Ranger Dylusions Sarcastic comments and plan to buy more(there was a new release this year). I do love giving these to friends who understand my humour and they sell well too. AND there are stamped images that go well with them. These Gerder Steiner Unicorns work out perfect (I apologise in advance Gerder for not using your wonderful sentiments that come with the unicorns but will use those next time)
I stamped my sentiment first.
So easy to colour in. I just did very light grey colouring of the body. bit of pink for ears.
Very pale bone colour for hoofs. Rainbow colour for mane, tail and horn.
I attached with a mini wobbler. I am new to the wobbler world and made the
mistake of also buying the bigger wobblers. They re too big for everything I want to wobble
so will be moving them onto a happier home somewhere?? I like the minis.
I very lightly stencilled with Distress Ink Storm.
My inspiration for this card came from Kim and her card for the Muse card
Challenge for this week.
This is Kim's card
I love it, but I don't have a pineapple die and I kept thinking
how can I go about this. I loved the big yellow/orange centre of
the card, the hit of green at the top the bit of black and white from the
string and the black dots.
My version. The big yellow/orange flower from Create a Smile I coloured the
flower with copics and finished off with a bit of gold pen for a nice finish. The way
I have coloured gives the illusion the petals curve but they don't really.
The leaves I die cut from different leaf dies and pieces of card stock I have watercoloured
or done with colour and shaving cream earlier and stockpiled.
I finished the card off with a piece of washi tape in black and white, some
black metallic dots and a gold cardstock die cut 'hello'. Don't ofter
do cards with all these layers but really love the end result here. Thanks so much
for the inspiration Kim.
I then decided to have a go at the colour challenge that also ends today.
They are such pretty colours. After doing my previous layers I thought why not try that again.
I just received the new Pretty Pink Posh Square Tag Die and I can
see lots of ideas for this but for today I cut two tags in grey, placed one
flat on the card, the next layered on a piece of dimensional foam first.
Added a few copic coloured pink flowers and to finish
off the look I die cut some leaves in pale yellow cardstock
and pale yellow vellum.
Finished off with a Happy Birthday that chose that moment to finally perish. The first
stamp I have had that has perished.
And now we are back to another Snarky Comment and a sweet (well grumpy)
Unicorn. A little digital dragon up the top also copic coloured. All fussy cut.
This time I have used a 'Create a Smile' stencil and blended with Distress Ink
blue very softly.
Here I have moved the dragon down so you can see "Why the Dragon????"
Yes its that never ending smudge and this time its right up the top and I didn't want to
So I decided to have a random sitting there just because it's a handmade card and I can do what I want. I had actually decided to be very industrious and make a pile of cards with the sentiments already stamped on them as organised people do.
Well I watch video's on YouTube and it always looks so easy and organised and perfect but I reckon they edit and edit, cause I wrecked 15. Yep I managed to put 4 folded cards down so the fold edge was resting right in the black ink pad. Then there were the 6 or so cards like the one here that had my finger print somewhere on them as I removed them from the Misti. Then there were the ones that got near the damp wipe I had used to wipe the stamp so we have grey marks in centre of cards..... you get the drift, ohh and don't forget the upside down stampings.
Maybe I shouldn't have cleaned any stamps till I was finished all stamping but I hate the thought of the ink staining. Anyway I will have to rethink that idea because it was a lot of waste as a lot of cards will now have to be cut down to just sentiments to add to cards.
If your still here, thanks for hanging in there. Love those Unicorns,now I need to do some cute kids cards. As soon as Sophie saw them when I was colouring last week she made off with four of them and all the little bits that come with them to make up stories with them. Love her imagination.
