Always be a unicorn

Hello lovely peeps

I'm back earlier than I expected as I just realized that I only have a few hours left to enter Squirrel's Not So Random Challenge.  [Edit: the challenge closing date has been extended until the end of July]
 I won the prize for the last one - Spring Fever - and they kindly sent me a voucher for Dies to Die For. It took me weeks to make up my mind, but I eventually put it towards this fab stamp set from MFT. Thank you so much girls, I can't wait to have a play :o)

Squirrel's theme for May & June was 'Fantasy' so I decided to use this month's progressive challenge image from Bloobel - Unicorn Spaghetti Head

I pulled him into CraftArtist (the png version) and added a background from the Natural Landscapes digikit. Really love the inky effect on this one.

He's just crying out for a witty caption but I couldn't think of one, lol :o)
Instead I've used this sentiment that I've seen around a lot lately - I typed it in with the Text tool using Holiday Springs BTN font.

I printed it out to fit a 6x6" card and then coloured the unicorn in with Promarkers/Flexmarkers
Celestial Blue, Ice grey 1-5, Orchid, Pink Lavender

I added a little touch of sparkle on the horn and the moon using a clear Sparkle pen (Crafters Companion)

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
 Squirrel's Not So Random Challenge #5 Fantasy
Bloobel's Progressive Challenge (June) Fantasy Creatures
Glitter n Sparkle #245 Anything Goes
C.R.A.F.T. #421 Animals 
Incy Wincy Designs - Sparkle or shine
Dragonfly Dreams  Add sparkle

Thanks for stopping by,
Katrina x

Just having a bit of a catch up after my hols, you have been posting a lot lately Katrina and some lovely work as always.
Love this, there are so many unicorns around lately and I like that this is a bit different and not so cutesy, great sentiment too!
Congratulations on your win, I never enter challenges but keep thinking I'll have a look round, there are some good prizes up for grabs (good choice by the way!)

Sorry, it's hard to type when you are giggling so much, that unicorn has really found my funny bone. What a fabulous card hunny, this is just brilliant. Thanks so much for your continued support of SNSRC and for sharing this awesome dude with us. Hugs xx
