Ink Road Stamps: Majestic AF (a black unicorn...)
I'm back again for Ink Road Stamps with one of my favourite cards I've created for them so far! I'm using Ink Road Stamps: Majestic AF and though I originally had other plans and a little bit of crafter's block I'm so in LOVE with this stamp and the finished card I made!
Here is the link to the IRS blog for more details on how I created these cards and...a free cut file! - provided by the lovely Mary (also on the design team) which helped me unblock my block.
Yup, that's right a Black Unicorn! I cut the file (with my silhouette) using black card thinking I'd use it as a stencil - but I ended up loving the contrast in colour and decided to give paper piecing a go since it's been awhile since I've used this technique. After the unicorn was covered (using scrap paper, washi tape and vellum) I stamped my background using the stars and dots from the Majestic AF set. I heat embossed these as well as the sentiment. I finished the cards off with some machine stitched lines and sequins and repeated this process for the other two cards below - changing the colours around a little... neon pink and white.
The black unicorn card is my favourite – “Happiness is a form of courage.” It was completely unintentional when I put them together, but when I look at the card it reminds me that being different isn’t a bad thing. It means you’re brave enough to be yourself!
