Rainbow Unicorn Card (KBD Aloha Friday Challenge #128)

Happy Friday! :o)

My second post today. If you missed the first one just scroll down or follow a direct link here.

Today a new Aloha Friday Challenge starts at Kitty Bee Designs.

The challenge for this fortnight is #128 - Fairytale/Fantasy.

We have two sponsors for this challenge: Bugaboo Stamps and Fabrika Fantasy, so there will be double prizes! :o)


I'm a huge fan of Fairytales, Fantasy and Magical World, so this was a perfect challenge for me. And here's my take on the challenge: Rainbow Unicorn Card. :o)

Yes, today is all about the rainbow here on my blog (check my first today's post). And dimension. LOL :o)

For my card I used sponsor's Bugaboo Stamps 'Sweet Unicorn' digital image and a sentiment from Jane's Doodles 'Magical' stamp set.

How I made my card...

First I made a layout on my computer. I moved the unicorn up and down, here and there until I was satisfied. Then I printed the image three times: one on a watercolor paper, second on a white cardstock paper scrap and third directly on a card base. I left images to dry over the night.

Next day, I prepared cardbase first. I folded the base in half, stamped the sentiment on it and colored the image with black marker (this gives extra shade to pop up images).

Then I fussy cut the image printed on the cardstock scrap (all except butterflies), colored parts with black marker and traced edges with same marker.

Next up was the image printed on the watercolor paper. I colored the image in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut all pieces, traced their edges with black marker and softened each piece on a soft working mat using stylus ball (this adds a bit of extra dimension to images).

With all my pieces ready, I started gluing everything down. I love dimension on my cards. I like to use various thick foam and other techniques to achieve different levels of dimension and to give something special to my CAS cards. :o)

I glued tiny butterflies directly on the card base and other colored pieces (unicorn and clouds) on fussy cut pieces colored in black. I glued a ladybug on the cloud directly on the cardbase. I glued 1 mm thick foam on the tiny cloud, glued 2 mm thick foam squares on the unicorn and glued them on the card.

As a finishing touch, I rounded two opposite corners of my card with a rounded paper puncher and colored all tiny dots with fine liners. :o)

I'm very satisfied with my card. Look at all different dimension levels!! LOVE!!! I might do this for a bigger, wall version. :o)
