Magic unicorn in the flowers

Hello there,

It's time for a new challenge over at the Fairy and Unicorn Challenge blog which starts today. As usual it last for about a month so I do hope that you'll join us.

The theme as always is Fantasy, however as long as it's Fantasy pretty much anything goes. If you're not sure what we mean by that just check out the guidance in the side bar on the blog. 

This month I've used a unicorn die Dawn Bibby Creations Magic Unicorn die and coloured it with Craft Artist Mica Magic as a bit of an experiment. The jury is still out on that one - as they say! Although it does look better in real life than it does in the photo.



Card recipe 

8 x 8 white card blank
White card for the die cut and sentiment
Purple and black card for the mats
Clarity Groove Designer Paper
Dawn Bibby Creations Magic Unicorn die
Craft Artist Mica Magic greens, grey, pink and lilac to colour the unicorn
Tonic, Spellbinders and John Next Door Stitch Dot Dies 
Sentiment from my stash probably free with a magazine
Purple net ribbon, purple roses and black pearls to finish it off

I hope you like the card I've made, please leave a comment to let me know what you think if you've got time. I do appreciate them and like to read them.


Please also join us over at the Fairy and Unicorn Challenge this month, we'd love to see you.

Fairy in the woods

Hello there,

It's time for a new challenge over at the Fairy and Unicorn Challenge blog which starts today. As usual it last for about a month so I do hope that you'll join us.

The theme as always is Fantasy, however as long as it's Fantasy pretty much anything goes. If you're not sure what we mean by that just check out the guidance in the side bar on the blog. 

This month I've gone with a fairy theme and used a kit which came with an issue of Papercraft Essentials. I'm not sure who I'll give it to so I've not added a sentiment yet. I edged the mats with double sided tape and added the glitter, I'd not tried this before and probably won't again as I got glitter everywhere!



Card recipe

8 x 8 white card blank
Papercraft Essentials Issue 198 Fairy Kit
Tonic Light Gold Glitter
Blue ribbon from my stash

I hope you like the card I've made, please leave a comment to let me know what you think if you've got time. I do like to read them all.
