Unicorn, Flowers & a Piggy

Another weekend has come and gone far too quickly and it's back to the grind.  I've got three cards to share today from my crafty time over the weekend.  First is based on the sketch at My Favourite Things.  Those chubby little MFT unicorns are so darn cute!  I think this set is going to see a lot of ink.  I coloured the unicorn and the rainbow with Copics, keeping everything really soft and subtle and because of that I'm also entering this in the CAS on Sunday pastel challenge

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Bashful Blue) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (All from Magical Unicorns) My Favourite Things
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Dies:  (Stitched frame) Reverse Confetti
Markers:  (RV000, YR00, Y00, G00, B00, BV00, C1, C5) Copic
Gems:  Recollections

Next is a card inspired by the photo at Addicted to Stamps and More.  I created the background with Brushos (inspired by the colours on the wall in the photo) and then layered on some Essentials by Ellen flower dies and an Altenew sentiment.  I love the spotty look the Brushos leave when you don't spritz them too much.  Such a fun product!  

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Watercolor) Ranger, (Black) Papertrey Ink
Stamps:  (Sentiment from Bejeweled) Altenew
Inks:  (VersaMark) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  (Opaque Bright White Super Fine) Wow
Dies:  (Wild Garden) Essentials by Ellen
Colour:  (Alizarin Crimson, Turquoise, Violet) Brusho
Gems:  Recollections

Finally I have a card for the Just Add Ink challenge to "Just Add P".  I went with this cute little MFT piggy and I paper pieced him for a double "P"!

Time to jet off to work.  Have a wonderful day!

Gorgeous line up, Jen. I love all of your cards, and especially your double 'P' on your paper pieced piggy - he's just too cute. I love the coloured chevrons and the bold black strip to highlight your sentiment. Thanks so much for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week. x

You have been busy! Your unicorn is so sweet, and I love those soft, pastel rainbow colors. That frame is on my wishlist, and it just might have to make it into my cart today, lol! I haven't acquired any Brushos as of yet, but I love your take on the inspiration photo. Bold and bright! And your little piggy card is adorable! He looks great paper pieced, too. Hope your work week is fun and fast, and that you find more time to create! Bev

What a great collection, Jen ... cute paper pieced pig, awesome rich, saturated colour behind the dramatic black bloom, and just the sweetest, subtlest little unicorn! Hugs, Anita :)
