Now the deets on my card
I created this card by starting with a piece of Fabriano 140lb cold press watercolor paper and some Ken Oliver Caribbean Brights Color Bursts.  I sprinkled the color bursts on my craft sheet and then spritzed with water and laid my watercolor paper down and picked up some color, I kept doing this with different colors until I achieved the look I was happy with, this took several attempts mind you. 
After I created my background I placed it in the Original MISTI because when you use watercolor paper its hard to get a crisp image because of the texture. 




I used the Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and I only had to over stamp it once to get a crisp image, but had I not had the MISTI then this card would have made it to the trash very easily. After stamping the image and greeting I ran it through the Big Shot using a stitched die. 
To finish the card I attached it to a black card base and added some gold to the unicorn's horn, after all it possible for a unicorn to have a golden horn right?

 Your next stop is Pauline 
and I bet she has something amazing waiting for you
