Unicorn Challenge Blog - Inspired by a Nursery Rhyme or Fairy Tale

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How is your week going? We are all back at work after our week off. It isn't long now until the school summer holidays.  We have just booked ourselves a holiday and it was a bargain. It needed to be what with a wedding to plan.

The first Tuesday of the month see the start of a new challenge on the Unicorn Challenge blog this will be our tenth challenge. The theme is to be inspired by a Nursery Rhyme or a Fairy Tale. My image comes from a children's story which is permissible too. He is the White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland with his great big clock.

All the stamps I used are from Visible Image a small company based in Wales. To create the background I stamped the clock stamps with Perfect Medium and heat embossed them with a black sparkly embossing powder. Then I inked over the page with some Distress Inks. Finally I sprayed water all over the page and blotted it dry with some paper towel this tones down the colour. 

The White Rabbit was stamped with black archival ink onto water colour card and he was coloured with my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens. I covered the clock and the eye of the rabit with Glossy Accents. I stamped a separate clock and cut it out and that is also covered with Glossy Accents. The frame for the image was made with some of Sue Wilson's dies. 

The sentiment also comes from Visible Image I love the quirky font. 

The ribbon was in my stash. I enjoyed making this card they are fantastic stamps to use. 

Enjoy the rest of the week., I am hoping to get some crafting done. 

Take care.

Hugs Jackie
