I Believe in Magic with Polkadoodles

Hello everyone……wishing you all a wonderful Tuesday with lots of lovely sunshine and some sparkly magic too!

I'm back today with my Polkadoodles Design Team project for the Digi Choosday Tuesday Challenge 


This week the DT was asked to make a 'Magical or Fantasy ' themed card so for me it had to be a unicorn of course and I chose to use the Hooray Sparkle Unicorn digital stamp from the amazing Sparkles Unicorn - Believe in Rainbows collection.

For my card I have used the black and white version of the stamp but its also available in a beautiful easy to use coloured version too and don't forget there is the Big Kahuna bundle available too with gorgeous papers, embellies and loads of sentiments too!

For this card I started with the background first and used one of my favourite combinations of distress oxides to create a lovely blended panel.  I splattered this with water to activate the oxidation effect of the inks and then splattered the panel with gold metallic paint from my Lisa Horton Crafts - Euphoria Watercolour palette.

To add a little more magic to the background I added some little stars using a posca pen.

Its so hard to see the magical sparkle in the photo.

Next it was time to have some fun colouring my unicorn with my Promarkers (see colours below). I selected pens to match the inks that I used on my background panel.

I used the SVG file that comes with the digital stamp and my Scan n Cut machine to cut out the design before adhering her to the background panel with foam tape for added dimension.

Finishing touches were some clear sparkle pen on parts of the image and a hand drawn wavy border around the panel on the base card which is a white 5 x 7 card blank.

 I coloured my unicorn with my Promarkers but decided that she was going to be pink not the usual white - did you know that pink Unicorns are extra magical.

The sentiment at the bottom is from the Winnie Daisy Fairy greetings bundle printed onto vellum. 


I hope you liked my card for today and don't forget to join in with the 'Anything goes' challenge over at the DIGI CHOOSDAY BLOG!
