Flying Unicorns June Kit of the Month- Snow Princess

Created using the  Flying Unicorns  June's 2014 Your Passion. Your Art. featuring the long awaited release of the newest collection from Riddersholm Designs Tailgate Marked !
Yes this is a totally divine kit and with all Flying Unicorn kits, it's first come first served and when gone, they are gone.  

I know many of you are thrilled that winter is over.  Count me in your ranks.  It was a brutal winter the likes that has not been seen in a while ( like since the ice age - hehehe).  If you are a person like my son that can enjoy and take advantage of snow to ski, then I celebrate with home in front of my fireplace with a warm blanket and my kitties.

OK so all that said, why did I choose a winter frost fest? Dang - all paper crafters know the papers gotta do the talking. This gorgeous Riddersholm paper collection said make me into snowflakes.  Thus I did.

In order to do that, I used the brand new Prima Metal Dies -Doilies Two.  I topped it with a snowflake punch, then some trim and a Prima Raelynn Romantic flower.   

This little cluster is created with a few layers....The Prima Doilies Two 572792 then the Prima Die Flowers Set of three 572822, kindof scrunched up for dimension.  Topped with some snowflake punching, punched pine sprigs and gorgeous Prima flowers - Prima Flowers Serenade Purple 561468 and Prima Flowers Raelynn Romantic 574789

Flying Unicorns CSI-Colors Stories Inspiration case File 124

Welcome to CSI-Colors Stories Inspiration case file 124.  
This month, the Flying Unicorns are sponsoring the fun color challenge forum.
 How does this challenge work?   You must use the colors in the palette.  You must pick at least two items from the evidence list and incorporate them somehow.  You must then some journaling from the Testimony list into your work.  It doesn't need to be on the piece, but it must be in your description .

My testimony:  I made a wish and then met you.

My evidence: Ombre effect with the paper from the center out to edges and flowers

So a little about my creation.  This is actually a 12x12 Canvas created using a few different Flying Unicorn kits.   I had to ink my  ribbon to make it grape colored.  Grape is not really a color I have much around the house.  But inking worked like a char when I used the Colorsnap Mixd Media Inx in Berry.

My corset is from Dusty Attic,  It's painted first with rose colored paint paint.  Then I added a little brown ink here, some gold embossing power and heat set.

I did run my fav Rub N Buff in gold on the Prima Metal Mechanical medallions.  

This 12x12 canvas is now in my ETSY shop. 

Consider playing along!  Your investigation starts here.
Check out the Flying Unicorns also - with fun monthly challenges and coordinating kits.

Prima - Julie Nutting's New Doll Stamp , Prima Doily Die, Color Bloom, Seashore Collection

I am  featuring a few new Prima products today and theses products feed into my obsession for the perfect day at the sea shore.  Prima has a new paper collection called Seashore, a new Julie Nutting Doll Stamp, and some sweet intricate metal doily dies that enable you to create a delicate look to any project.

I just happened to use the Prima dies to create some lovely sea weed and the Prima Color Bloom Mist  to provide the backdrop for my perfect day.

This month, I created a canvas - lightly misted here and there with Summer Sky blue Color Bloom Mist for a watery flowing effect.  My misting technique?   Easy - set the canvas in it's side, spray the Color Boom, then immediately spray some water over it.  I also dabbed dry in places to thin out the mist effect.

I did dab my paint brush into the mist and paint onto the canvas in places where I wanted to enrich the blue color.

To create the sand -  I dipped a paintbrush into water and Prima Ingvild Bolme Chalk Edgers -Dark Bark and painted right onto the canvas as a water color.

After that, I just layer my background using the Prima Seashore collection.

Thanks for stopping here for a visit.  I treasure you.
