Dylusions spray inks, Magical day, Magical Mates, Masks/Stencils

Rainbow and unicorn postcard

OK so today’s blog is actually a project I started way back in November (as in that’s when the swap should have happened and I gathered the supplies and the idea) but only finished last weekend.

The postcard art swap group I belong to on Facebook had the theme of unicorns and rainbows for November but due to a busy old time, and then Covid and then Christmas my recipient Pat only actually got my postcard this week. Ah well better late than never!

I also forgot to take a pic of the postcard before I sent it… so this pic is the one Pat posted when she received it!

I took some cardstock that was a bit glossy and used both Dylusions spray inks and distress stains to add the colourful background. Once it was dry I added texture paste and black gesso through the stencil (aall & create) to create the rainbow arch.

The unicorn is from the Magical Day set and after colouring with promarkers I added wink of Stella and glossy accents.

Once dry I adhered it on the panel and then chose the sentiment from the Art by Marlene sticker book which I mounted and also added the glossy accents to.

I then double mounted the panel to make the postcard nice and sturdy.

Love this colourful and whimsical postcard.

Now for my slice of life… brunch, meal prep, a walk in the ice and snow, crafting, tea time and Wandavision… a fab chilled out day! Need I say more? And I’ve made this months postcard swap before the month ends ready for posting tomorrow and blogging next week. Result!

Happy crafting!

Catherine

P.s. thanks Pat for the pic đŸ˜€
