PURE MAGIC

Is there a way to measure magic?  I don't know, really.  But the concept of a magic-ometer was something that came to me when I was developing this set and one of the first ideas I *had* to execute once I got the prototype into my hands.

I love it.  LOVE it.  LOVE IT!!!

 

The images were all stamped with black pigment ink onto watercolor paper and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

After watercoloring the images, I die cut them all out, and die cut more of the same shapes from 110# Neenah to stack and glue them together, turning them into thick,  "faux chipboard" embellishments.   

It's hard to tell in the pic, but I applied Stickles Glitter Glue kinda heavily on the right side of the rainbow, and then spread it out towards the left using a piece of scrap card stock as kind of a squeegee; it became thinner on the left as I did that, which I actually really liked so I didn't mess with it afterwards.

Glued on some micro clear white (they're iridescent so they reflect rainbow-ish) star sequins by HAI Supply and then sat on my hands; I think it was a good call. LOL!


RIGHT UP THERE

It's hard to tell in the shot, but there's a lotta glittery sparkles on this window card--it's all over the rainbow, Unicorn's mane and tail, the bottom of those poufy clouds.  I wish it were easier to capture sparkle on camera.

Used the •uber• cool Infinity Cloud dies by Hero Arts to make my window, which was then lined with a piece of tulle (instead of acetate) to float the elements on.  

 

 

Any time I see a fab basic shape like this in a nested set, it has to come live at my house.  I can't resist the potential.  I love the saying on this card (from the Pure Magic set); makes me smile--how could you not, if a friend sent you a card that said this??? I mean, come on...
