Rainbows and Unicorns

Hi and thank you so much for stopping by today.  I have a really different kind of share today only because i wanted to play a little and create something that inspired me by the sentiment of my stamp.
I use the new "Wishing you Whimsey" stamp set and tried some new pearl paper and a watercolor technique to make it.

 So i wanted to make a kind of watercolor rainbow for my card so i got out my distress inks in a few rainbow colors and layered them on my craft mat like you see below.  Then i spritzed it slightly with water and pressed my pearlescent paper into it.

For the paper less water will give it more color and when you heat set it with a heat tool to dry it the water kind of bleeds all around and gives it a fun effect like you see below.

When the paper was dry i cut out a pretty frame with one of Becca Feekens new dies called Hemstitch Rectangles.  It fit perfect around the watercolors and flattened it just the right amount. 

Then i cut a pink mat to go around the frame and then glued it on a kraft card that i made to fit.  The sentiment was stamped in Black Onyx Versafine ink and i added just a bit of sparkle with some superfine glitter and a few flowers to make it more magical.

Oh and i also watered down just a little bit of pink ink and splatted it onto the card with a paint brush to give it a little more pizazz.  And that's it.  Something new and fun to try with your Quietfire design sentiment stamps.  Below is the whole set with all the other cute sentiments that it has in it.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a really fun and crafty day.
