Alpha Challenge 'U'

Its the letter 'U' for the Alpha Challenge over at The Craft Barn.  I chose Unicorn.


I wanted the background colours to be ethereal so I stamped and coloured the unicorn with Promarkers, made a mask then  gently streaked Pickled Raspberry, Peackock Feathers and Shaded Lilac Distress Inks coming away from the image.  The Unicorn is a Messy Rabbit stamp by Joanna Sheen, Unicorn is stamped with Fishtails clear alphabet stamp by Sassafras Lass and the stars are a little Lavinia stamp just repeated lots!  I had to add lots of sparkle with Glamour Dust as unicorns are so magical!   Please pop over and see the other fab entries and the brilliant design team pages.  Thank you so much for visiting and have a lovely weekend whatever you are doing.  Take care.  Christine xx

Hi Chris,

Hmm, I was wondering which color is pickled raspberry. You know, I love anything pickled - but a raspberry! haaaa

The unicorn came out looking great. I like the sparkle and small stars.

I've been MIA for a while too. Life has gotten in the way. I'm hoping that changes soon!

Hugs,
Kay
