Fairy Tale Unicorn in Pencils

Morning and we have a new ATG challenge at Crafting With Friends sponored by Fabrika Fantasy and I used the image "Fairy-Tale Unicorn" once again but this time coloured with pencils-a first for me-the lines of glamour dust were added because my printer has decided despite head cleaning it is going to leave faint lines!!!I used layered stitch dies from The Works and all papers from stash,the little corrugated cardboard arrow painted with Aztec paint was one of a set from Dutch Doobado,I added a thin DST all round edges of card and pressed glamour dust onto it for more sparkle.No sentiment until I decide who it is for.
Sorry if I am slow getting round to you all but had grandaughter Holly off school all week with abcess on her tooth-really swollen and in pain on antibiotics at the moment.

Back to School with Friends

Morning and this is my 2nd and last DT post today which is for the new ATG/Back To School challenge at Crafty Girlz.I used a pr-coloured image from Mos Digital pencil which was actually bought from Hobby House a couple of years ago.I decided to decorate a note-book bought from Hobbycraft also a couple of years ago-trying to use up my crafty stash.
The elements are cut from Tim Holtz papers which I have had for a good few years-thought it was about time I used them!!!
I distressed all edges/the paper clips are from stash and everything was put on with silicone for extra depth.
