Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Unicorn!

It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!

The LEAD of this challenge will be invited to be a guest designer in an upcoming challenge!

For my card I  started with some water color paper and distress inks.  I brushed on some grass and sky.  I used the distress sprayer to add some water splatters.  I blotted with a paper towel.  Since the theme is all about unicorns, I decided to go all out.  Of course, after all of my years collecting stamps, I still do not have a unicorn.  I had to "make" one...sort of!  I used MFT The Whole Herd stamps and die namics.  I used the horse in this set.   I used wink of stella to color the horse and shades of pink distress inks for the mane and hooves.  I added a hand-cut unicorn horn using gold glitter card stock....ta instant Unicorn!  

I figured a unicorn must reside in a sparkly barn.  I used MFT Barn die namics and die cut with smooth white, shades of pinks, and some silver glitter card stocks.  I assembled the barn and inlaid a few of the pink panels on the door.    I added a gold glitter fence using MFT Rolling Hills fence die namics. I added the sentiment from MFT Bling It On.  I finished with a few tiny stars and gold sequins.

Make sure you visit each of the designers' blogs
