Magical Birthday for JAI #412

Yes, it's another happy Friday in welcome :-) Of course, if it is Summer in your part of the world then it may well seem perfect - here it's Winter and with a couple of weeks til the Shortest Day so I'm allowing myself to dream LOL

It's time for a new challenge at Just Add Ink and this week Lou has suggested a fun and fabulous one for us all - to Just Choose Two of Spots, Splatters or Speckles. There are so many ways that you can go with this and our lovely design team have led the way again in creating gorgeous projects to inspire you. So I hope you can take a moment and pop on over and hopefully join us too!

My card uses last week's sketch but it fits the "splatters and speckles" theme too. To create the background, I started with water color paper and Distress Resist Spray - simply unscrewing the whole nozzle and flicking the spray onto the card created the splatters and speckles. Then it was a case of slowly but surely adding colour and more Resist Spray with each colour layer. The spray dries clear and is shiny and textural and traps whatever colour is underneath it. Be that white, yellow or pink!

The magical little unicorn has it's mane and tail coloured using Water Color Pencils and her body is covered in Wink of Stella just to make sure she sparkles. It is sad that both the stamp set and the Number of Years stamps and dies are all now retired. Unicorns are so "in" at the moment and this card is for a niece who is having a unicorn themed birthday party so it is one set I will hold onto.

Card stock: Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Sparkle Glimmer, Vellum

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you can take a moment to pop on over to Just Add Ink to see all the fabulous inspiration and I look forward to seeing what you will create with this fun choice too.

Happy stamping until next time,
