I am thrilled at the way Edna is supporting the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers newest challenge, U is for Unicorn. The sisters have discovered that some of us are more Team Unicorn than others - in fact, other than a couple of digital ones, I don't even own any unicorn images. 🙀 And as it turns out, I'm not the only one. Do the Sisters let that stop us? Of course not! Luckily for me, I had a stamping playdate lined up where I asked my friends to bring any unicorn sets they might have. Naturally, with lots of stamps to choose from, I made two. My first: 

That sentiment had just the right amount of snark to balance the sweet and delicate unicorn! I tucked her into the sentiment as well as I could and coloured her in lovely pastel unicolours. I used three of the same colours for the rainbow, and added a glittery cloud. Her horn is given texture and sparkle with icicle Stickles, and it only seemed right to use Tiara Stickles for her farts. The rainbow and her mane have several coats of Wink of Stella for shimmer. 

My second card ups the bright and lowers the snark:

The parents of the young person I plan to give this to might find the sentiment somewhat snarky, and that's good enough for me. For this card, I used a classic Paper Smooches unicorn, paired with another sentiment from the same Essentials by Ellen set as my first card. I went for the full rainbow treatment both for her mane and down the left side of the card. Because I keep cardstock scraps, it was easy to match each mane colour! ;) This time I used glitter marker and glossy accents for the horn. I'm adding this card to Simon Says Stamp's current Wednesday challenge, CUTE. 

Some of my sisters have devised quite original unicorns, so be sure to stop by the blog - and welcome our latest Queen of Snark and guest designer, Jenny! Break out those magical unicorns and come play along!

Loving the Paper Smooches unicorn image - I don't think I've got any unicorns either - unless they are 'hidden' in my crafty stash!! :)
