I always see things (dies, stamps, inks) that I want. And then I purchase them. They arrive, I put them in a drawer for another day - and often forget to get them out and use them.
Case in point - the wonderful Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel dies and stamps and the Neat & Tangled Magical Day stamps and dies which I purchased months ago thinking I'd use them to make a card for my unicorn-loving youngest grand niece.
So yesterday was the day I got them out - inspired by two challenges.
And here is the fun card I made for Madelyn - who will be 5 in April
(shhh - don't tell her about the card!)
I personalized the top of her card using my Brother Label Maker.
And the birthday sentiment stamp really says "wishing you a wonderful birthday", but I only inked the Wishing You A and the Birthday and then stamped the MAGICAL in the space that happened to be just big enough!
I took 4 pictures to show you the 4 words from the sentiment set that I stamped on the wheel so you see each one as you turn the wheel. FABULOUS AMAZING AWESOME MAGICAL
I colored the unicorn using Tombow Markers pushing the color around the area with a Clear Glitter Wink of Stella - below you can hopefully see the wonderful glittery shine!
Jennifer McGuire has a YouTube Video on this coloring technique here.
My inspiration from the Splitcoaststampers Inspiration Challenge was this unicorn from the web store Accessorize
