Hi! So glad you are here!! My card today is for the Cardz 4 Galz Challenge #73: Pretty and Pearly. So, what is more pretty than a pearly unicorn?!? Let's peek at my card below!

I started out by stamping the unicorn with Versamark ink, onto a piece of cardstock I had treated with my Anti Static Bag. I used the Tonic Tim Holtz Stamp Platform to stamp the unicorn. I sprinkled on Silver Lightning embossing powder and heat set it. Then, I used paint brushes to brush on the embellishment mousse. I store my mousses in individual zip-close baggies to help keep them from drying out, but if they are too dry, I just mist them with my water mister and this is all I need to do to get them to the consistency I needed to paint the unicorn. When I was done painting the unicorn, I used my Tonic Tangerine die cutting machine and the Tonic Mixed Edge Oval dies to cut out the unicorn and a pearly paper to mat behind it. I also cut out a square from a 12x12 sheet of Lawn Fawn's Watercolor Wishes collection pack paper for the background. And, then I die cut out some of Lawn Fawn's Watercolor Wishes petite paper pack and the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders die to make the grass area. I adhered the grass border to the base of the card, and then layered the unicorn oval using foam dimensionals. Then, I started decorating with pearls! I pulled a bunch of pearls from my stash and had a lot of different sizes. I placed the pearls inside the unicorn body and also created a hint of a rainbow with pearls in the upper right corner. In this photo below, you can see all the fun pearls in the body and the sparkly Silver Lightning embossing powder!

I used my Copic markers to color white cardstock in coordinating colors, and then stamped the sentiment using Versamark ink and sprinkled on White Detail embossing powder. I heat set it, and then die cut it with the Tonic Tangerine and the Tonic Mixed Edge Oval dies. I adhered a ring of pearls around the sentiment and adhered it using foam dimensionals to the card front.

This was a really fun card to make! I love how the different pearl sizes worked so well on the unicorn, and this was the first time I have painted with Nuvo Embellishment Mousse. It worked great! I will definitely be doing this again. I can't wait to see what you create and put in our Cardz 4 Galz challenge. Good luck!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!
