Moody Unicorn

Gerdes Steiner manages to create images that just make you smile and this is no exception, of course it had to be coloured in rainbow and all the card had to match.

I am obsessed with rainbows and it would appear unicorns as well, just as well everyone feels the same as I do lol.

I made this at the same time as the "platypus unicorn" card and I learnt from my mistakes, I didn't blend the inks then add more ink with the stencil I just used the stencil. I did move the stencil slightly so the glitter paste didn't completely cover the rays but you really can't tell lol.

Sorry its been a while

Well my posting every three days took a bit of a nose dive didn't it (pun intended) lol. I think I might need to explain why, its not a long post but I understand if you want to avoid it.

I have been scheduling my posts in advance for a while now, I pepper this with newer stuff as well but a lot of my stuff is made a few months in advance and I don't want the recipient seeing it so I try to wait until after their birthday. This also helps if there are any emergencies and I need to be out of the crafty loop for a while and one such emergency happened recently.

Long time readers to my blog will remember that about six years ago I had a bad fall and broke a few things including my nose, well guess who did it again....six years to the day in fact and at the same location. You just can't make this stuff up. It was very painful and as I couldn't wear my glasses it made crafting a bit difficult. I am all mended now but I am on catch up with my makes and consequently my blog schedule.

Of course there has to be a silver lining, when I broke my nose last time it wasn't straight afterwards and sort of veered to the right a little, this time i hit it in the opposite direction and now have a perfectly straight nose with a little bump where its still a bit swollen.

When I was explaining it was broken my friends were saying but its straight and I replied well it wasn't before lol.

So I am hoping this will be my last blip for a while.....maybe even six years.

If you read all this, wow you deserve a medal and thank you xx
