Unicorn Blog Challenge #54 - May 2020


The theme or this month's challenge at Unicorn Blog Challenges is to Use a die and/or a punch.

The elephant was in my stash, a Mandala I coloured with copic pens.  I remember receiving different animals over a few months, but for the life of me, I cannot find them on my computer.

I used a round die cut for the image and a doily diecut or the patterned paper matting.  Layered onto the graph paper, added some twine and a stamped sentiment to complete the card.

A Place to Start, Make your own Background - 4 May, 2020

This month's theme is Embossing, wet or dry.   I have used a clock embossing pad (tip: give your cardstock a light spray of water before embossing, helps with the impression being  clearly raised)

Some brown ribbon, typed sentiment and little wooden clocks, which have been inked in different colours complete the card.
