The Paper Players #481

Laurie is hosting a color challenge this week at The Paper Players!  I have impatiently been waiting to ink up the new Unicorn Dreams stamp set. I decided the trio of colors would totally work for a unicorn.  The colors featured are Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana and Calypso Coral.  I chose Lagoon, Glacier and Peach from Close To My Heart to match the colors.

To create my card, I first cut a scalloped panel from Lawn Fawn. The outer scallops were masked off with purple tape.  I stenciled on clouds by sponging on Glacier ink against a cloud die cut.  Once my clouds were complete, I stamped my sentiment in Intense Black Ink.   My unicorn was also stamped in Intense Black ink and then colored with Copics.  After coloring, I went back over the mane, tail, horn and hooves with a clear shimmer brush for added sparkle.  My unicorn was die cut with the coordinating Thin Cut die. I applied the unicorn with 3-D foam tape for added dimension. A few stars from the Silver Loose Sequins finishes it off. My scalloped panel is also mounted with 3-D foam tape onto Lagoon cardstock with a Peach border. A stitched outer frame completes the card.

My card is created based on the sketch challenge at Sketch Saturday.  They have extended the sketch challenge this week and you are allowed to pick any sketch from 2018.  I went with Sketch #497-

The Unicorn Dreams stamp set is super cute!  I  only used two of the stamps on my card.  The set is available with or without the coordinating Thin Cuts dies.  Here is the complete set-
