Distress Inks can be blended to create bright & dreamy backgrounds, perfect for unicorns and rainbows!
Hi there! Elena here, with a sneak peek of the fantasmagorical (it’s a word!) Unicorn and Rainbows set:
I wanted to give the card a dreamy quality, without resorting to too many pastel colors. I grabbed a few different colors of blue distress inks: Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, and Faded Jeans and blended them together. I blended it so that the edges faded to white, and you can still see the different levels of blue. I then flicked on some water and white paint to add to that whimsical, dreamy quality.
I stamped, die-cut and colored all of the images with copic markers. I love the one unicorn with his frayed mane, jumping over the rainbow! The streak of light behind him is actually the image of the shooting star, but I cut off the star and gave him that extra element.
When I was happy with the scene, I cut off the bottom of my ink-blended cardstock piece, and adhered all of the images to it. I then die-cut another piece of white cardstock (using the largest of the Lawn Fawn rectangle stackables dies) and stamped my favorite sentiments from the set below.
I hope you like what I’ve created for you! Thanks for stopping by!
The Essentials by Ellen Unicorns ‘N Rainbows stamps & dies will be available Sunday, July 8th!
