Myths & Snippets #2 ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope you are having a lovely weekend. I wanted to enter a couple of challenges again with a second entry and here it is …

Another 148mm square card
Lots of lovely texture and depth
All the details
He is a beautiful beastie!
A final look

Created for me and especially for these Challenges

Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge Inspired by a Myth or Fable
Please see here  for The Unicorn in the Garden a modern fable for our time

I used several coloured backgrounds snippets to cover the card front and to then further embellish it with my lovely new dies, courtesy of a challenge win, thank you Frilly & Funkie lol! I used the following items:

1. Card with texture paste applied through a stencil and then the background was coloured with acrylic paint and once dry I coloured the flowers, the branches and leaves with Distress
Crayons set 1.
2. Card painted with Distress Re-inkers, to give the look of a landscape.
3. Lots of varying sized snippets were used along with the new dies and then glued onto the landscape.
4. The unicorn was stamped with black Versafine ink pad onto a snippet of Sheena stamping card then I used my heat tool to dry it.
5. The unicorn was coloured with Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens and once dry fussy cut out and positioned.
6. I stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set onto a die cut tag and added that to the card.

I created a very simple collage background this time to try and achieve a different look because I currently only have one Concord & 9th stamp set but I wanted to enter the challenge a second time lol! Lots of snippets were used though which is always a good thing! Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you have a lovely weekend with plenty of time to do what you love, hopefully crafting, lol! ttfn Karen x
