This card is for the challenge I'm hosting at DTGD, it is an elements challenge to use certain elements in your card.
This card is a commission card and so is probably far more detailed than I would normally do.
Coming up with the idea was probably the hardest. The young lady who will be the recipient requested a unicorn which is what she wanted last year so this year I went to Jodie Mackrell’s Bugaboo Digital Stamps and chose her little chibi BUGUNICORNCHIBI.png and BUGUNISET3.png as my images. When you buy these images they come in both jpg and png and the reason I use the png was because I needed to merge the images. I only ever work in word or paint and never have any issues.
I merged the images then printed them off twice. The first merge would be the base and the second image would be coloured but only the chibi then I would fussy cut her out.
I coloured the rainbow first including the shading on the clouds then I ran the Tombo glue over the clouds and added Flower Soft Polar White. I then coloured and fussy cut the little unicorn chibi, went around the edges with my black copic marker a Tole Technique (make sure you do this with the back of your work facing you so that if your pen slips it will mark the back of your work and not the front coloured image, mounted her on some craft foam and glued her over the same image on the card front so that it all lined up. A lot of copic colouring but worth it.
I stamped the number then punched it out with a SU balloon punch first over stamping with versa mark and heat embossing. I worked out where I wanted the greeting and also double /over stamped that.
The rest is just putting it together. I hope this card inspires you hugs Marg
