Skull And Cross Buns | I Believe In You | Video

Skull and Cross Buns had some very exciting news lately – Emily will be showcasing her products on the Create & Craft TV channel with a regular slot! In fact the first one is starting right as I publish this – find it here. If you missed it, you can watch it on catch-up over the next 7 days. This is one of the cards I made for Emily for the show, to promote the Unicorn kit.

I started my card by cutting a panel of white card and placing the medium stencil over it – this stencil is exclusive to the Unicorn Bundle for the show. I used some repositionable paper tape to hold the stencil in place then started ink blending. I first went in with Spun Sugar Distress Ink over the entire stencil area.

Next I masked off so I could work on one rainbow at a time. I switched to Seedless Preserves and used that on just the innermost portion of each rainbow, and then used Milled Lavender to blend between the Seedless Preserves and Spun Sugar.

Once I was happy with the blending I removed the stencil and placed the panel in my card base. I used my grid acetate to help me line up the sentiment, which is from the I Believe In Unicorns stamp set. The sentiment is actually in parts. I used the “I”, “believe in” and “yourself”, masking the last word slightly so that my finished sentiment reads “I believe in you”. I used the unicorn embellishment as a guide for positioning the sentiment, then stamped with Seedless Preserves Distress ink.

Before adhering the unicorn Jumbo Embellish! embellishment I used double-sided tape to attach my completed panel to the cardbase. I then attached the purple unicorn embellishment into place with liquid glue.

I’m very happy with this card. The ink blending turned out really nicely and pops well against the white card. I’m glad I chose to use the Seedless Preserves instead of black for the sentiment as I think black would have been too harsh. I really like the monochrome look that this card has, and I think it makes a good encouragement card. If you enjoyed this card I hope you’ll check out the show to see what else can be made with this and the other bundles. And check back next week for another card from me using this bundle!

  1. Wow, your purple tones stenciled in an ombre style are just stunning. They backdrop the unicorn so perfectly. Thanks for joining along at TGIF this week and for “creating your own background” with us. Smiles, Elizabeth
