Less is More Week #345

Good morning

Welcome to a fresh new Saturday and another new challenge over at Less is More.  We're back with One Layer Week again and have a fun one for you this time, with hopefully lots of options...

Happy Little Stampers are our sponsor for September so do play along for a chance to win the monthly prize!

I've had a busy week this week with one thing and another so just the one card for you today.  This challenge was another opportunity for me to practice with my Faber Castell Polychromos.  They are still very new to me and I have a lot to learn but I'm pretty happy with this little project...

I originally bought this unicorn stamp to use on another card, here, but the card needed to be A5 and the image was a little small, so I used it for this card instead.  I stamped the unicorn directly onto my card base and then left it in position in my MISTI so I could restamp later.  I then coloured the image with my Polychromos, and just added a small amount of grey to the unicorn's body.  I placed the card back into the MISTI and restamped to sharpen up the image.  I then stamped the sentiment in black, and the shooting star image in silver.  A little clear Wink of Stella was added to the horn.

Materials used:
  • Stamps: Azeeda - Proud Unicorn (purchased from eBay); Woodware - Unicorn
  • Ink: Versafine - Onyx Black; Versa Color - Silver
  • Coloured with Faber Castell Polychromos
  • Accents: Wink of Stella - Clear

  1. You really are a whizz with those pencils Neets and love all the glitz and glamour to your unicorn. If only they existed in real life in that way! Thanks for the neat tip about restamping your image afterwards as they do tend to lose the outline when coloured. Hmmmm why didn't I think of that. Hope your weekend makes up for the week you've had. Hugs x

  2. Adorable, Anita ! Love the CAS design by only colouring the mane and the tail in rainbow colours. I'm sure you enjoyed your Polychromos and we will soon see some other beauties with them ! Wish you a fabulous weekend and hope that next week will be quieter for you ! Hugs xx
