Happy Sunday! Today I will be sharing a project showcasing one of the new stamps and dies designed by Julie Ebersole for Essentials by Ellen. I also created my very first shaker card. I have hesitated until I found Queen & Co. They have made everything available for us in our creation process.
The new set,” UNICORNS ‘N RAINBOWS”, designed by Julie Ebersole, is one of my favotites. If you like magical things, especially the elusive unicorn, this set is for you.
I first stamped the leaping unicorn, the rain bow, and the clouds, with Memento Black Tuxedo Black. I colored each with my Copics (affiliated links below for the colors I used). I die cut each element with the matching dies.
Next step was creating the background. I blended Distress Oxides (affiliate links used) inks in Salty Ocean, Wild Honey, Shaded Lilac, Faded Jeans, Peeled Paint, and Antique Linen. As you can see I was going for a semblance of earth and sky. I let those inks dry and then added Pearl Perfect Pearls and water in a spray bottle to make the sparkle. I don’t think the camera picks it up, but it’s there. I created the clouds by fussy cutting each one, turned them over to hide the stamping, added glue and glitter to get some extra sparkly going.
Before assembly, I made the shaker with a circle foam shape (Queen & Company). I stamped a few clouds on the background for the shaker and added the shaker ingredients. Next is the assembly for the shaker front. I added the rainbow and clouds. After all was dry, I added blue glitter to the bare spots on the acetate.
UNICORNS ‘N RAINBOWS will be entering the following challenges:
