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,

  1. 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!)
