I was contacted last week to make a card for someone's daughter who will be turning 7 shortly - perhaps with a unicorn and maybe a rainbow. The proceeds of this will go towards the Ilula Orphan Program in Tanzania to help the children and their support staff stay safe and healthy, now that COVID-19 has reached the isolated community.
I die cut three of these darling unicorns (Tattered Lace) and removed the "bits" from the one that would be on the top and coloured them with various pastel-coloured alcohol markers colours and then reinserted them. then stacked it up with the other two plain white ones and added glossy accents to the tail and mane and sprinkled glitter while it was drying - which not only made sure the tail and mane would sparkle but also that those bits wouldn't fall out. Eventually I added another 2 coats of glossy accents.
I coloured the rainbow with the same alcohol markers - it's from an NBUS set, so I'll be entering it in NBUS Challenge #24. I placed these small clouds at the bases of the rainbow and gave them the same sparkly treatment I had given the uncicorn's tail and mane. I ended up adding another 3 clouds to the design for balance and support for the rainbow (along with some foam tape in a few spots). The name was die cut with the smallest alphabet set I had from holographic white card stock and curved over the rainbow.
I shaped the "hill" with a Simon Says Stamp Wavy Scallop Stitches and the whole panel was cut with a Crealies Stitched Rectangle.
