Hello Crafty gals and boys!
I’m spending today with some new Lawn Fawn goodies – and I’ve managed to make, video, edit and upload a video all in one day- which is pretty much a record for me. I was feeling proud as punch, until I noticed that there is an annoying flicker on the footage. Sorry about that guys. I have enlisted the help of mister husband to see if we can make sure that doesn’t happen on future videos. Grrr! Mega frustrating – I hope you can endure it for today.
Here’s today’s card! A fun interactive card featuring a carousel or merry-go-round – one of my childhood favourite funfair rides! We used to go to an Irish seaside town called Portrush, and they had the most amazing Carousel – it always seemed like pure magic to me and my sister!
I thought this unicorn would make the cutest little element for my carousel, and I coloured him with pastel copic colours, and added a layer of glitter with my Wink of Stella clear glitter brush marker. I then added some extra sparkle using the sakura clear glitter gel pen, around the horn and the mane. Everyone knows that unicorns are 98% sparkle!
Of course there is some distress inking, and whole load of diecutting. I even threw in a little heat embossing with holographic embossing powder – for an extra glimmery shine!
The video walks you through how I made the card from start to finish. I hope you enjoy it!
