VIDEO: Gerda Steiner Designs ~ Blending a Copic Rainbow featuring Unicorns

Happy Friday!  It's finally here!  I don't know about you guys but I am so relieved.  I had moments this week where I was worried my friend Friday would never get here!  I am so super excited about today's project for Gerda Steiner Designs!  This new Unicorns stamp set is just dreamy!  And as soon as I saw it I just knew that my glitter paste was coming out to play.  Because nothing screams UNICORN like some sparkle, right?!


I started by mixing some Sugar Glitter Paste with different colors of Distress Inks and applying it over a stencil directly onto my card bases.  I love that you can get any color you can imagine by using this technique!  


Then I colored in the super stinking cute waving unicorn from the stamp set.  The really fun part was using a rainbow of markers to blend his mane!  This was the first time I had tried blending Copics that were not in the same color family and I had so much fun!  Check out the video to catch all the tips I picked up while I colored.


Some fun and bright frames, a little glossy accents and three rounded corners (my kiddo's idea - she claims it is the next big trend in card making) and these puppies are done!  I had so much fun with this adorable Unicorns stamp set!  Thank you all so much for stopping by and I'll catch you next time!  Have a great weekend!  Bye!

  3. Love these cards! When in doubt, ask a child! My 4 y/o grandson just finished his week at art camp and we really can learn by asking a child's opinion, they are SO open to everything! Tell Kennedy, she rocks, just like her Momma!
