Unicorn Sparkle! Whimsy's New Release!

Good morning my crafty friends!  I am excited to share this adorable new set by Whimsy Stamps called Unicorn Sparkle! I stamped it in Black Memento ink and colored it with Copic markers in a rainbow pattern.  I used Stickles in Sprinkled Sugar for a bit of sparkle on her mane. I added white dots to the centers of the flowers using Nuvo Crystal Drops in Simply White. 
I wanted the background to have some texture but not overwhelm my main image, so I opted for the new Military Camo Background stamp.  Yep....military.  In rainbow.  :)  Doesn't look as military in pinks and oranges does it? I cut the main image with an oval die and popped it up with Crafty Foam tape.  I added a coordinating ribbon and a little heart from the Sparkletz Love Hearts collection. 
Thank you so much for stopping by my little corner of the cyber world!

Fluttering by....

Good morning! I am home today with some weird virus.  It started last week as a typical cold and spiraled into an all over body rash.  I am coughing like a seal and look like I have the plague, so needless to say, I am home.  ;)
I am really tired of the rain and snow (yes snow) that Chicago has dumped on us the past week, so I needed a bit of spring in my life.  I used Whimsy Stamp's Build a Garden die set and Zig Clean Color markers. 
The background was done using Distress inks in Broken China, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade , and Picked Raspberry.  I spritzed it with a bit of water to get a speckled effect. I coated each flower pot with Glossy accents and Glamour Dust.
I never feel my spring cards are complete without a fluttering butterfly, so I added one from the Butterflies Fluttering set. I used the marker directly onto the rubber to get the two tone effect.  I fussy cut it and added it to my sentiment strip that was cut using the Quick Strips die set.
I layered everything with Crafty Foam Tape, added white Nuvo drops, and a heart from the Sparkletz Love Hearts collection. 
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I really appreciate your visits!
