Curtain Call InspirationChallenge: Unicorn

It's time for a new challenge at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Unicorn.

I haven't done this in a long time - but I went out a bought a unicorn stamp set for this challenge!! A year or so ago, I realized that I was buying stuff for every challenge. First of all, there's no "challenge" if I'm buying products to fit!  Second, half the time, I didn't even love the stuff.  I used it and tucked way back in the storage drawers.  There's too much good stuff out there for me to be buying stuff I don't like.

However, in this case, I didn't have a unicorn in my collection and I have unicorn lovers in my life.  I searched some of the big stamp stores for unicorns and decided I particularly liked this set by Pink & Main mostly because of this particular unicorn and the big eyes.  (Not to mention it gave me an excuse to buy the rounded stitched rectangles and the "sweet" set from the same company.)

I wanted to keep this very white and very fresh - so I kept most of my color confined to the "sweet" die.  I used my new very favorite stamping tool - my Clarity Stencil Brushes - and added some soft color to a rectangle of paper before cutting out the "sweet".  I love how soft you can keep the colors with the brushes and how smooth the colors go on.  It's not magic - but it's a whole lot easier than any other method I've tried.

Be sure to head over to the Curtain Call blog to see what the rest of the design team has done with the "unicorn" challenge.  We do have a new member of the design team - the amazing Tammy Hershberger.  AND we have a fabulous guest designer - Anni Lerche, from Annikarten. LOTS of great inspiration over on the Curtain call blog!
