Running With the Rainbow Unicorn

Recently I participated in my first ATC swap organized by Miss Ally.  The theme was glitter.  First thing I thought of was glittery, tween-y stickers and paraphernalia.  And what's more girl tween-y than unicorns and rainbows??

So, anyone get the title reference?  Anyone as geeky as me??? 

It's a song sung by the stuck-up antagonist Portia on the Nickelodeon cartoon "The Mighty B".

The main refrain of the song is, "I'm running with the rainbow unicorn.  Don't you wish you were me?"

You gotta check out the You Tube video of the song!  Hilarious!

OK, so the ATC is made with a playing card base.  I created a mask for the edges by cutting the center out of one of the cards.  That way I could mist the card and glitter it without getting glitter on the edges.  I adhered the glitter with Glimmer Mist if you can believe it.  To keep the glitter from rubbing off I sprayed the cards with a fixative afterward. 

The unicorns, hearts, and clouds are cut from K&Company papers.

Details:  K&Company paper; Martha Stewart glitter; Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist; Stickles; Sharpie marker; unknown rhinestones & playing card.

I had such a great time making these ATCs (and getting the other 11 entries back) that I signed up for 2 more!!  Halloween and Kawaii (Japanese pop culture) themes.  Should be fun and I'll be sure to share once they're done!

Which reminds me, it's Wednesday so the new Pink Ninjas prompt should be up!  Check it out!!

And be sure to stop by the Sketchy Thursdays blog for an introduction to this week's sketch challenge sponsor, Evalicious!

Happy Wednesday!!
