Believe in Yourself

Hi Friends,

It's new release time once again over at Whimsie Doodles and this month Melyssa has created two stunning Abby Girl images and a unicorn set. Please pop over to the blog to have a look and to check out what my teamies have created with these images.

For my inspiration card I just had to play with the unicorns, they are so darn cute!

I decided to go with the leaping unicorn and had originally wanted to incorporate a rainbow into my design, because rainbows and unicorns go together - don't they?! However, my rainbow die is tiny and I wasn't feeling creative enough to make my own rainbow and decided just to use my cloud dies instead! Now this card is a bit out of my comfort zone in the sense that it is very girly and very pastel! I tend to go for bright strong colours so this was a change for me, and I'm not sure if I like it!

MFT Die-namics - Blueprints 20
Taylored Expressions Dies - Build a Scene Rolling Clouds
Mama Elephant Dies - Basic Set
Simon Says Stamp Cardstock - Fog
Heidi Swapp paper Pad - Dreamy
Generic Glitter Sheets - White
Copic Multiliner - 0.3 Black
Hero Arts Ink - Pastel Blue and Pastel Yellow
Zig Wing of Stella Glitter Pen - Clear

I started by adding some extra lines to the unicorns tail with a copic liner as I wanted to make the tail multicoloured! The image was coloured with copics and fuzzy cut it out. I blended some pastel yellow and blue chalk ink onto some white card and die-cut a rectangle panel out using blueprints 20. I printed the sentiment, die-cut some clouds and mounted them onto the bottom section of my panel. The unicorn was also mounted using foam dots. I die-cut some tiny stars from pink designer paper and white glitter card using a die from ME basic set and randomly added them to the scene. Using SSS fog cardstock I die-cut the large scallop rectangle from blueprints 20. I then adhered my scene to the scallop rectangle before mounting it onto the card base. I added some wink of stella to the clouds and to the unicorns tail and mane.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Thanks so much for visiting.
