Gothic Unicorn: Day 10 of 31

Helloooooo!!! It's Day 10 of the 31 Days of Halloween. Today I used a very unique image that I have really fallen in love with. It's the Gothic Unicorn from GothArte Tenebris.

I'll be honest, this was an intimidating image to color, but man was it worth every second! I really took my time with it, and I am so happy with the end result.

I colored the Gothic Unicorn with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I also broke out my water brush from time to time. When I was finished coloring it, I fussy cut it out, but leaving a bit of a border. Then I looked for some coordinating papers to complete the card.

I really wanted some shine, so I found that fabulous metallic copper cardstock and paired it with some paper from DCWV. I felt I needed some more color, so I used some deep blue cardstock and sprayed it with Sheer Shimmer Spritz from Imagine, in Gold. You can see the shine in the photo above. The card base is ivory (I thought white would ave been too stark). It didn't need much else, since the image has so much going on already, so that's where I ended it.

The coloring is fangtastic but
I wouldn't want to meet him out
on the street. He doesn't look
like a friendly unicorn.
Great piece.
thanks for sharing.

Holiday Spirit: Aurora Wings Challenge #73

Seasons Greetings! Today I have a project for the latest Aurora Wings Challenge which is "Holiday Spirit." I decided to take the theme as a two-fer. Not only is this a holiday card, but the "spirits" are flowing too.

I used the Wine Sprite for my card, and gave her a Merlot look. I colored her with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Here's a closeup.

I found a lovely paper in my stash from Wild Rose Studio from their Holly Lane collection. For my sentiment, I had some pretty red glitter cardstock from DCWV that I die cut with an old alphabet set from QuicKutz. I also added some sequins from a few different Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. The sequins and the sentiment were all glued on with On Point Glue from Imagine.

On my card base, I inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and then Peeled Paint Distress Ink. After I adhered my background to my base, I added Rock Candy Stickles to the edges. This gave just a touch of sparkle.
