* VeraLane Studio: Unicorn Girls


It's Monday again already! And so it's my Vera Lane Studio DT day, and today I'm delighted to introduce a new digi set called Unicorn Girls. After all, we all need a little magic in our lives! I love that Janet has named the girls - Cortesia and Dulcea. 

I decided to try something different this week and so I made this quick and easy wall hanging:

My wall hanging is made from jumbo, wooden, craft lolly sticks that I found at my local craft store. I held eight of them in place with double sided tape applied to the back. I needed to keep the surface as flat and even as possible since I was stamping the background with my Inkylicious Splatter Circle. First I needed to apply a thin coat of white gesso to make the wooden sticks a bit paler in colour. When this was dry, I inked the splatter stamp with Distress Oxides and silver Brilliance ink, spritzed it with water and stamped it onto the sticks. It took a while to dry thoroughly and, when it was dry, it was time to add the cute images and sentiment.

I coloured the girls with Copics and gave them some white highlights. I added a little glitter to their horns and to the flower eye. They were fussy cut leaving a thin white border. I glued some gold trim to the bottom of the inked circle and glued the girls directly onto the wooden surface. The sentiment was cut into strips and inked along the edges then attached to the surface. I added some Crystal Stickles to the outer splatter edges of the circle and attached a few sequins.

Two of the sticks were glued to the back of the surface securing all the sticks in place and also securing the blue ribbon.
