Fairy Tale Unicorn in Pencils

Morning and we have a new ATG challenge at Crafting With Friends sponored by Fabrika Fantasy and I used the image "Fairy-Tale Unicorn" once again but this time coloured with pencils-a first for me-the lines of glamour dust were added because my printer has decided despite head cleaning it is going to leave faint lines!!!I used layered stitch dies from The Works and all papers from stash,the little corrugated cardboard arrow painted with Aztec paint was one of a set from Dutch Doobado,I added a thin DST all round edges of card and pressed glamour dust onto it for more sparkle.No sentiment until I decide who it is for.
Sorry if I am slow getting round to you all but had grandaughter Holly off school all week with abcess on her tooth-really swollen and in pain on antibiotics at the moment.

Inkylicious and Baby Wipe

Morning and I have a Thank you card to share today using my new Inkylicious stamp,the background was made with a baby wipe used to clean some stamps grandaughters were using with a very juicy red inkpad!!!whilst the ink and wipe was still wet and laid it onto cardstock and kept patting it down and moving it around till it covered the card.
I then added some spots of yellow and blended with the still wet wipe.
I stamped the image and stamped sentiment,matted onto black the white cardstock and added tiny pearls and white gel pen from stash-I am sending this card to my Nephews wife who kindly sent me a rather large box of craft stuff and a box full of practically new stamps(not this one)-thank you very much Fiona much appreciated.
