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.
