Who Loves Magical Unicorns? I DO!!

Hi Lovely Bloggers...

(Warning - Picture Heavy Post!)

I've been playing with these fabulous Magical Unicorns from MFT for a little while, and wanted to get just 'the right' background for behind the shaker bit.  You know what I mean by that?  Nothing else will do - you know what you want, and have to figure a way of getting it!  Well I scratched my head for a while, and this is what I came up with...

I used a light pencil to mark the size of the circle background I'd need - then set to with a pad of post it notes (the long ones, not the square ones), and I blended Distress Inks in a rainbow of colours - using the post-it note as a mask.  I started with the red, and worked through to the violet.  I was really pleased how it turned out, as I think unicorns NEED rainbows!  If you want to try this and need more help - just give me a quite shout.

I made three cards while I was in the Unicorn/Rainbow mood - and have more still to put together.  This is where it gets picture heavy! LOL!  (Scroll down for materials used)

Materials Used:
Dies - MFT Dienamics Peek-a-Boo Window Large
Mama Elephant Confetti Stars
Distress Inks for background
Colouring - Copics
Unicorn body - B60/63, C0
Unicorn manes -  
Lots of Glitter card and Lots of Sequins!

Hope you like my makes - I have a real love of unicorns and rainbows, so I really enjoyed playing with them... hope you will do too!  Like I say - if you need more help with the rainbow background - I could possibly be persuaded to do a YouTube tutorial.

Big hugs
