Rainbow Background Unicorn Slim Card (New Craft Stash #12)

Hello! This is the 12th post of my New Craft Stash series. For this card, I am featuring the Pinkfresh Studio Slim Fancy Diagonal Stripes die, and the I-Crafter I-Brush Ink Applicators.

I die cut a white cardstock using this die. I inked the diagonal stripes with dye inks using a rainbow pattern. I kept the negative cuts intact by taping it on the back to add some stability to this delicate die cut while I do ink blending. To blend ink to the stripes, I masked each stripe with a Post-it note. I had trouble making the Post-it note adhere to the inked stripes. So I used a scrap transparency to cover the inked part so I can continue my ink blending. 

I removed the negative cuts carefully. Instead of throwing these inked negative cuts, I adhered this to another diagonal stripes die cut, making sure I adhere it to the same spot where I removed it from the rainbow stripes die cut. Not all of the diagonal stripes get cut off. This background has a totally different look which I am saving for a future project. 

I trimmed a cream cardstock at 3 3/4" x 8 3/4". I adhered the rainbow striped die cut to this and set this aside.

For the focal point, I die cut an oval on a white cardstock which will serve as the face of the unicorn. I die cut the horn, flowers and ears using the Pinkfresh Studio Magical Unicorn die set. I die cut these on glittered cardstocks. I heat embossed the details on the horn and flowers using Wow! Metallic Gold embossing powder. The ear die cuts the outline of the ear only. I adhered the ear outlines to a pink glitter cardstock to create a backing for the ears. I cut off the excess following the shape of the ear outline die cut. I stamped the eyes on the white oval piece. 

I adhered the horn, flowers and ears to the white oval die cut. I added a gold thread underneath the flowers. 

For the sentiment, I stamped this using a Color Box Mustard dye ink. I adhered this to the striped panel, slightly angled, using foam adhesive.

Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
