OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Sky background: First I colored watercolor paper by SMOOSHING Distress Inks by Ranger  that had been applied to acetate and then spritzed with water.  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Next I sprinkled with Violet Ken Oliver Color Burst (Watercolor Pigment Powder)  & spritzed with water.   I stamped the stars with Versamark Ink with Lawn Fawn:  Upon A Star and heat embossed with A very glittery embossing powder that I bought at a garage sale and it did not have a label, so I don’t even know where to get more.  It is my favorite silver glitter embossing powder!   The grass was colored with Citron Distress Inks by Ranger .  The sky & ground were cut with Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Boarders.The card is longer than the dies so I repositioned to finish the cuts.  The unicorns are XCut XCU503029 Unicorn Mini Die set (the link is to the European company, but I have found them in the USA in a local store in Oregon). I colored them by smooshing again and painted the main and tails with Crayola 8-color Watercolor SetThe sentiment from  Lawn Fawn:  Upon A Star was stamped with Versamark Ink and heat embossed  with  a FUN scented embossing powder:  Color Box Scentz – Grape.

For the background I Masked off the hillside and “spattered”  Art Masking Fluid by Windsor & Newton with a Kemper Spatter Brush on watercolor paper and let it dry.  I then sponged Faded Jeans Distress Inks by Ranger .   The snowflake is from  A Festive Season by Penny Black and was heat embossed with white.  For the Shaker I glued the clear jewels on the background to create a space between the transparency and watercolor paper.  I hand stitched the transparency to the background after applying  1/8 inch Score-Tape adhesive tape .
