Pinkfresh Studio Technique Talk Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Pinkfresh Studio Technique Talk bloghop. Today, we are playing with techniques using the new release stamps. FUN!!!!

You should have come here from the talented Julia Stainton's blog.

For my card today, I used two techniques. First, stamping and embossing on vellum, then coloring it onto the back side. Second is partial die-cutting.

There is a story behind this card. Three weeks back my younger daughter had a foot operation so before they gave her anesthesia, the doctor told her to think of nice things to dream about once is asleep. Then he asked her, so what do you wanna dream about? Her reply, which totally wasn't what I was expecting...lol
Unicorns, rainbow and Hawaii.....Here I made a card for her using the AWESOME "Magical Unicorn stamp and the Magical Unicorn coordinating die" :)


Here are some steps on how I created this card:

I started with sponging Candied Apple, Picked Raspberry, Wild Honey, Peacock Feathers, Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean Distress Oxide inks and Wilted Violet distress ink onto the cardbase.
I then stamped and embossed the Unicorn horn onto a piece of white cardstock. Now I put the die onto it but didn't cut it fully, I left a small part uncut so the horn is still attached to my mat layer. 


I then stamped and embossed the flower onto a piece of vellum and die-cut it. I stamped the leaves using green ink and then die-cut these as well.
I then used my copic markers to color in the flowers from the back side.
Then I stamped the eyes and the sentiment onto my mat layer.
Flick some water onto the rainbow panel. Let dry. Flick gold paint onto it.
Assemble everything together.

Here is a close-up pic for you.

Truly a magical card ! I love the look of embossing on vellum but find it difficult to hide the glue/tape while adhering it to cardbase.
