Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - July 15 - Unicorn Wishes

Hello stampin' friends! Time for a NEW Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Unicorn - all the details and link-up are over at the Curtain Call! I ADORE the inspirational photo that we have and as soon as I set my eyes on this sweet unicorn and the banner, I knew I had to use my Reverse Confetti Unicorn Wishes and Double Banner Garland Confetti Cuts.

Oh and before you run off to check out all the inspiration the crew has to share I want to give a special shout-out to Tammy Hurshburger at Stamp Happy ! She is joining the Curtain Call Crew and we couldn't be more thrilled to have her join us....she is SOOOOO super talented and such a sweetie! 

The LEAD of this challenge will be invited to be a guest designer in an upcoming challenge!

Please welcome our newest Guest Designer,

Anni Lerche, Annikarten 

I used MFT Heavyweight Cardstock in Black Licorice and Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock!

I wanted a soft feel in keeping with the inspirational photo so I did a little "reverse water-colouring" as I like to call it. I made some water-coloured patterned paper with my Peerless Watercolors and set it aside to dry, when dry, I strategically stamped on the watercoloured paper to get the desired colour and effect with the Unicorn Wishes and Weather It Together stamps, then cut the images out with the coordinating Unicorn Wishes and Weather It Together Confetti Cuts.

I used the Love Note Confetti Cuts, cut from water-coloured paper, as the "home" for all the stamped and die-cut elements and created a little scene. I stamped a sentiment from the Unicorn Wishes on a flag and tucked it under the cute little unicorn. I wrapped the panel from the Class Act Confetti Cuts with hemp twine tied a bow and sprinkled around some pretty pink sparkly YNS GumDrops.  I thought my card should sparkle just a bit so I pulled out my hand-dandy Sakura Gelly Roll Stardust pens in clear and yellow...unfortunately,  it doesn't show up in the pics.

I finished off the inside of the card too...stamping another sentiment from the Unicorn Wishes stamp set on the small tag from the Tag Me Confetti Cuts and adding a few left over "reverse watercoloured" stamped images and dies.

I LOVE the style your reverse watercolor technique gives to this card! I might have to try that sometime, although nothing I make will turn out as fabulous as this!
