Quick Unicorn Card

Herd of Unicorns
I am on my way to Kalamazoo, but I thought I would share a quick card I drew for a birthday recently. This was drawn with a 0.5 multiliner on Neenah Classic Crest card stock.

I quickly colored the bodies of the unicorns with BV31 and BV23. The manes are colored with B41 and BG72. The horns are colored with W1 and E42. No blending, merely a layer of light color, then a layer of the darker color over the top. Any blending is done simply by lifting up at the end of each marker stroke. I added a hint of W1 to the underside of the top unicorn to help his body stand out from the other unicorns.

The yellow airbrushed glow was made with Y02. I chose yellow for the background glow because it is the compliment to purple and I knew it would make the unicorns seem to pop off the page more.
There are two layers of unicorns, popped out with X-Press it Foam tape. The rhinestones are from Kaiser and Recollections.

Here is the sentiment that I made for the inside of the card. I thought you might enjoy this magical thought for the day, which you are welcome to share.

(By the way, On the card it said year, I have adapted it to say Day instead, in case you want to borrow this for Pintrest or Facebook).

Happy Mother's day, and have a great week. I'll see you in Kalamazoo!
