Be a Unicorn Lawn Fawn CardMonday, October 3, 2016
This unicorn stamp set caught my eye and made me laugh. It originally is a Christmas set, but I love to stretch my stamps to use for any season. So I switched out the sentiment to create this "sending hugs" one. It is so easy to make that you will be wanting to make one for someone you know too!

1. Tape your watercolor paper to a non-stick service or paint board with painter's tape. Using your blending tool add colors pink, orange, and yellow from the top to the bottom blending in a circular motion.
2. Mist water on your hand and flick on your paper. Let the water react with the ink and then blot with a paper towel.
3. On the Marshmallow cardstock, which is perfect for stamping and blending, stamp the unicorn with Staz-On black ink. Color your unicorn in with the markers. Add some shine with the Wink of Stella Clear Brush Pen. This adds a touch of glitter to the image. I had to add it all over, ha!
4. Cut it out and add it to the card with pop-up adhesive. Stamp the sentiment on the card with black ink again. Don't forget the stars!
