CAS-ual Fridays Stamps - August New Release - Day 1

Hi everyone!! I've been so excited for this day to arrive, its finally Day 1 of the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps  August New Release!!!!

We have four days of new products to share with you and the fabulous thing is that they are available RIGHT NOW in the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Shop!  So as soon as you see the new stamps and dies, you can grab them straight away....yippee!!

Today we have one stamp set and co-ordinating dies to share with you. Introducing Be A Unicorn and Unicorn Fri-Die: 

 I was so happy when these new sets were revealed to us. The unicorn is so beautiful drawn and I love the sketchy style. And thank goodness it comes with a matching die, as my shaky hands wouldn't do well with fussy cutting that gorgeous mane!!

For my card I wanted to keep it soft and simple and of course add in some rainbow colours:

I must say that the die fits around the stamped image so perfectly, it makes such a difference!!

I started off by heat embossing the unicorn in white on some Strathmore Bristol Smooth CS. Using a waterbrush and Zig Real Color Markers I softly coloured the unicorn body in grey and then created a rainbow for the mane and tail. I even used some Gansai Tambi gold watercolour paint for the horn itself. 

I wanted to keep the background subtle but also add to the prettiness of the design, so I used Waffle Flower 'Safe Choice' ink on the large peace sign from the 'Peace Out' stamp set. I then stamped the sentiment (from the same Unicorn stamp set) in black and put the unicorn on foam tape. And I finished it off with some gold and coloured sequins from Neat and Tangled.

I'm going to link this to The Cats Pajama's Challenge #349 where their theme is 'Birthdays'.

Will also link to the Create Something Catchy August Challenge where their theme is 'Watercolour'.

And I almost forgot to link to The Daily Marker Colouring Challenge in the 'Beginner' category.
