Wow, the last few days have been quite a roller coaster ride. If you saw my post yesterday you will know my car had a very severe and pretty much fatal breakdown on Friday. Living far beyond any civilisation, not to mention public transport I could not just stick my head in the sand and ignore the issue as I have to get to work somehow. To make a very long and emotional story short, I have today bought a new (well, used but new to me) car which I should hopefully be able to pick up on Saturday next week. I'll introduce you to Fernando when he arrives home. Apart from what will be a very inconvenient week of car-pooling with the other half, and of course not having any money to spend on things like crafty stash for at least the next year (or four...) things should hopefully slowly return to normal again here in InvisiblePinkWorld. Thanks for all your commiserations, I appreciate it a lot. And then on to more crafty and interesting things!
Apologies for a second unicorn card right after yesterday's rainbow unicorn but I just can't resist this adorable little darling. Today's card was inspired by the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches and the colours at ColourQ. I'm also linking up with Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge where the theme is "It's A Stitch Up" (my second entry) and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge where anything goes (my third entry).
I started by blending Spiced Marmalade and Picked Raspberry Distress ink for the background and then spritzed with a very fine mist of water. I then die cut the clouds and stamped and coloured the unicorn in orange and pink. After adhering everything I stamped a custom sentiment using Clare's ABCs and to finish I added some Ice Stickles and adhesive rhinestones.
