PIP Challenge 1808 - Bugaboo Stamps

It's going to be a great week! March arrives midweek so spring is only another month or two away! Sorry, some Midwest humor slipping through. Still it is Monday and time for an anything goes challenge over on the PIP challenge blog. Be sure to play along this week for a chance to win a very generous $12.00 gift certificate at Bugaboo Stamps. Love her store and am always excited when she sponsors a challenge.

I picked Unicorn Kidz, once again stepping out of my comfort zone. I just found it to be irresistible and my mind immediately went to her tail being a rainbow.

Hair, skin and clothing are colored with Copics. The tail was colored with Zig Clean Color watercolor markers. Yes, got a few to play with because sometimes you have to shake things up for the sake of creativity. The colors used are 020 Red, 070 Orange, 050 Yellow and 803 English Lavender. Since I used regular cardstock, I skipped the water and let the colors stand on their own. Even without water they still blended and created another color. Think I'm going to love using them. Horn, star and shoes also were treated to Some Spectrum Noir clear sparkle.

Old SU tags were stamped with words from Color My World (Honey Bee Stamps) and attached to scrap design paper with a brad. Attached this to a 5" x 7" white card blank and using Kaleidacolor ink, Spectrum, stamped "beautiful" ( My Sentiments Exactly) on the card blank.

Suddenly I want to be a Unicorn...


  1. Thank for the birthday card ==early. Love it.

  2. This is fabulous, Birdie! Love the whole tye-dye feel in the background and rainbow effect in her tail! Beautiful coloring!!

  3. Great inspiration!! I don't know if I would've thought of the rainbow approach but now I can't think of any other way she'd look better!! She reminds me of cartoon characters from the 90's (I think it was the 90's!!) She is so full of energy, like a young super hero!! Thanks for the share and have a great day!!

  4. POWER PUFFS!!!! That's what the cartoon was!!! Anyway ~ have a great day :)

    1. You are too funny, Wendy!now that you say it, I can see it too.

  5. SO cheery and fun! I love how you colored her up! She reminds me of the "Sprites" toys when I was a kid!
