Sparkly Rainbow Unicorn Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight + RCC #13)

Hello everyone! :o)

This is my second post today. If you missed the first one, just scroll down or follow a direct link here.

Today is my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made this Sparkly Rainbow Unicorn Card.

For my card I used stamps from an ADORABLE Jane's Doodles 'Unicorn' stamp set.

How I made my card...

I stamped an Unicorn on a watercolor paper and colored him in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut the Unicorn, traced edges with black marker and softened him with a stylus ball on a soft working mat.

I stamped another Unicorn on a white cardstock paper, fussy cut him out, leaving white border around him, and glued colored Unicorn over him.

I drew sparkles on the Unicorn with a white pigment ink pen. To do so, I was inspired with AMAZING coloring by Marika Gewalli of Craftybit Creations (find it here)Thank you for the inspiration, Marika!!  

Next up was a background. I placed a starry stencil on a white cardstock paper panel and spread a white structure paste through the stencil directly on the panel. I left the structure paste dry on air. As the stencil is smaller than the panel, I repeated the process until I achieved enough starry background. :o)

After the panel dried completely, I glued it on a white top folded card base and glued another white panel inside the card. I heat embossed a sentiment in white on a black cardstock paper, cut a stripe, glued foam tape on the back of it and placed the sentiment on the card.

I love dimension on my cards, so I glued some foam on the Unicorn too, placed him on the card and my card was finished. :o)
