Magical Day

                                 Happy Thursday High Hopes Fans! 

My post today features Julie's Unicorn and a sentiment from the Sentiment #2 set from High Hopes. Nothing says magic and fantasy in my world like a unicorn. 



Sparkle Close Up


I started by colouring my stamp with alcohol markers and fussy cut him leaving a thin white line. Silver Wink of Stella was added to the mane and tail - what's a unicorn without glitter! 
 Now more then a few of my fellow DT's will laugh at this but I didn't have a background paper I liked for this stamp so I made my own. I stamped plum and bashful blue inks on water colour paper, spritzed it with water and lightly sponges spots of white acrylic paint on it. I let that dry and then added some swooshes with a silver wink of stella pen. The unicorn is popped up with pop dots, a piece of pearl chain was added and silver glitter gumdrops to finish it off.
