Sunny Studio Stamps Pegasus

 Hello friends!

I have given myself a goal of posting once a week for now to keep consistent but I am so dang excited about how this card came out that I HAD TO post it right away LOL!

I just love the look of no-line watercolor on critters.  So I knew I had to do it with this Sunny Studio Stamps Prancing Pegasus Stamp Set.  I'm also currently loving pastel rainbows!


I began by stamping the image with Ink on 3 Fade out Ink onto a piece of Bristol Smooth Cardstock.  It is a very faint ink that kind of disappears as you start coloring in your image.  Bristol gives me the best result when using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers which is what we will be doing today!

I started by coloring in the pegasus' body with Light Pink.  For the hair and tail I chose pastel rainbow colors and colored them in rainbow order (ROYGBIV). I used Light Pink, Orange, Lemon Yellow, Pale Green, Light Blue and finally Lilac.  After the image was dry I drew the eyes and nostrils back in with a fine black pen before fussy cutting the image out. 


I have to say that I was giddy happy with how the coloring came out! It just has such a whimsical look.  To make it even more magical I sprayed the image with some shimmer spray.  This was a new product to me and the effect is beautiful because I love shimmer so much!!

In my head I pictured a fabulous pastel rainbow background for this beautiful Pegasus.   I created my rainbow on a piece of watercolor paper with some pastel watercolors.  Once the panel was dry I die cut it with the Frilly Frames Retro Petals Die and used the included stitched rectangle border.  


I have to admit that I have been hoarding all the little pretty pieces that came out of the panel LOL. I might have to die cut the panel in white and do some die cut inlay!  Don't you love 2 for 1 background panels??

I chose to use 2 sentiments on this card. First was a "Happy Birthday" sentiment from my stash and I die cut it from some pink glitter paper and adhered it onto a vellum shadow. I also die cut a cute little cloud (from my stash) and stamped the "Have a magical Birthday" from the stamp set onto it.  To add a little interest to my cloud I ink blended a little Pinkfresh Studio Ocean Breeze Dye Ink around the edges for a soft look.


Next it was time to assemble my card.  The rainbow background was adhered to a pink A2 cardbase with some liquid glue.  I adhered the sentiment and cloud next before finally adhering the Pegasus with some foam squares.

The finishing touch was some Sunny Studio Iridescent Pastel Confetti.  I am in love with these embellishments because they lay flat and have no holes in the middle.  They are so pretty and a great accent.

I hope you love this card as much as I do even if I'm bias LOL.

Thanks again for reading!
