To celebrate my love of crafting, I'm creating one of my favorite kinds of cards, one mixing and matching supplies from multiple companies and one that features rainbow color! I've had this awesome Concord & 9th Unicorn Awesomeness Stamp Set for awhile now and have never used it! Today seemed like the perfect opportunity to showcase this awesome images and all the colors of the rainbow!
The background panel for my card was die cut from Bristol Smooth Cardstock using the largest Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Rectangle Die. The panel was inked with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink and then stenciled with the MFT Stamps Radiating Rays Stencil and Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, Candied Apple, Carved Pumpkin, Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers, Shaded Lilac, and Blueprint Sketch Distress Inks. A Distress Sprayer was used to spritz water over the panel and then blotted dry with a paper towel.
Two more panels were die cut from smooth white cardstock and vellum and die cut with the cloud border from the Unicorn Dies. The borders were layered along the bottom edge of the rainbow panel. A sentiment from the Concord & 9th Unicorn Awesomeness Stamp Set was stamped in the upper right corner of the card using Versafine Onyx Black Ink and colored in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.
The unicorn from the Concord & 9th Unicorn Awesomeness Stamp Set was stamped on Bristol Smooth Cardstock, colored in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, die cut with the coordinating Unicorn Dies, and adhered to the scene as shown. Detail was added to the unicorn with a Sakura Stardust Glitter Pen, Glossy Accents was added to the eye, and Nuvo Crystal Drops in White Blizzard was added to the unicorn horn.
Distress Inks were used to add color to a scrap of Bristol Smooth Cardstock and then the heart and star confetti from the Unicorn Dies were die cut and adhered to the card as shown. Nuvo Crystal Drops in White Blizzard was applied to the shapes and a few additional drops were added throughout the card to complete the magical design.
