To create my card, I first created a watercolor background. I spritzed a piece of watercolor paper with water until it was pretty wet and shiny. I then used Derwent's Graphik line marker paint pens to create the background. You can achieve a similar look with Color Bursts too, which Butterfly Reflections Ink carries in the shop. I basically flicked on color with the marker, letting it bleed out in wonderful feathery bursts. I let it do its thing and left it to dry.
Once dry, I used Heidi Swapp's Minc Reactive Mist and flicked a few drops across the dried watercolor panel. This is a somewhat thick liquid like a spray paint (but thicker) that you can FOIL when it is dry. Once it dried I ran the piece through my Minc with some Decofoil Iridescent foil. It created wonderful sprays of silvery flashes. It reminds me of mercury.
I used my MISTI and the unicorn from the stamp set to stamp over the watercolor foiled piece. I used Versafine Onyx Black ink and had to stamp 4 or 5 times to get a crisp solid black line. When dry, I coloured in the unicorn's horn, mane and tail with a silver glitter gel pen for more sparkle! I then partially trimmed out the unicorn with scissors and my trimmer. I also die cut a Star Shaker outline by My Favorite Things from silver glitter cardstock.
For the card base I used some pale rose card which I ran through with an embossing folder to create a heart texture. I adhered the unicorn panel using fun foam and liquid adhesive, and slotted the silver star in with glue dots. I trimmed off the bottom of the card with a strip of silver glitter paper and some thin washi tape.
The sentiment was from the same stampset, which I heat embossed with Hero Arts white embossing powder onto dark purple cardstock and popped up on foam tape.
Et voila! Crazy hearts, stars and unicorn glitz!
Hope you enjoyed it - let me know if you have any questions, I loved making this card, so much fun!
Have a great week,
