Hello friends!  I hope you're having a great day today!  As I'm writing this post it's Monday, and at Catch the Bug, that means it's time for the DT to share some Anything But a Card projects.  Here is what I have made for you:

I can never decide what I want to make when my make day falls on a Monday, so I usually default to making a tag.  Today is no exception, but this time I wanted to make a tag that would be used as a decoration.  This tag measures 3 5/8" by 5".  I figured I could hang it up here in my craft room when I need a little cheering up.  My image choice for this tag is Unicorn Set.  There are 3 images in this set; the unicorn (obviously), the cloud, and a rainbow.  The way this unicorn is drawn, it sits nicely on both the rainbow and the cloud.  I wanted to make my own rainbow, so I chose to have him sitting on the cloud.  I don't have any rainbow dies, so I just used my Spellbinders classic circle dies in the large set to cut from Recollection 100lb. card stock.  This works out pretty well; I think you just need to be aware of how you position your finished rainbow.  Also, I made a kind of booboo by taping all of my cuts together BEFORE I colored them, but I just tried to be careful.  Next time, I'll color them first.  :)

The rainbow pieces and image were all colored with a combination of Copics, Spectrum Noir, and Prismacolor markers.  Oh yes, and I ink blended some clouds on the tag using the template I made with my Lawn Fawn cloud dies, Taylored Expressions blending brushes, and Tumbled Glass Oxide ink.  I also blended some ink around the edges of the tag for a more finished look.

So, I really think that rainbows and unicorns should sparkle...ALOT!  To achieve that look, I added Spectrum Noir clear shimmer pen to the rainbow, yellow Stickles to the horn, and to the stars in the cloud.  Hmm, maybe I should add more shimmer to the unicorn somehow?  I'll think on that.
