Be Fabulous

Here's my card for the current challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches.  I flipped the sketch around a bit to create this encouraging design featuring stamps from Essentials by Ellen.

Go Forth and Be Fabulous card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Essentials by Ellen
I colored up one of the unicorns from the Unicorns 'n Rainbows stamp set with Copic markers.  Soft colors are hard for me, but I think I did okay here!  I added a bit of sparkle with a glitter brush pen before cutting out the image.  I die cut a stitched cloud from shimmery white cardstock to go with the unicorn.  Both pieces were adhered to the lower left corner of a light purple card base. I used some foam tape on the unicorn to give it dimension.  A trio of silver glitter enamel dots were arranged around the images as an accent.  The "go forth and be fabulous" sentiment from the coordinating Pure Magic stamp set was stamped on the right side of the card, slightly higher than the images, to finish the design.

Materials Used:
Unicorns 'n Rainbows and Pure Magic stamp sets (Essentials by Ellen); Memento Tuxedo Black ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); markers (Copic); clear Sparkle glitter brush pen (Spectrum Noir); Lilac Grace cardstock (Papertrey Ink); Crystal Stardream metallic cardstock (The Paper Cut); stitched clouds dies (Lil' Inker Designs); silver enamel dots (Eyelet Outlet); foam tape
