This is my first Design Team post for Skull and Cross Buns, it is a bit delayed, but hopefully better than never. Emily, I owe you a few posts! 😉
If you don’t know Skull and Cross Buns you should. This is a relatively small stamp company based out of the UK. One of the things I love about SaCB, is that Emily (the owner) thinks about the whole picture. Yes, she creates some super adorable photopolymer stamps, but she also creates matching stencils and acrylic embellishments.
Her embellishments can come in nearly any color under the sun, and even occasionally in wood! Just wait until you see her soda and sweets embellies!
I have several projects coming soon using those embellishments, but first I wanted to share this project where I used the I Believe in Unicorns stamp set.
To start, I stamped and colored one of the unicorns using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and Copic Markers.
Then, using the Cloud Rainbow Pattern Large Stencil, also by Skull and Cross Bones, I created a rainbow looking gradient using Catherine Pooler Inks. To finish this off, and to make it even more magical, I heat embossed some Rainbow Sparkle Embossing Powder by Brutus Monroe along with the help of some Brutus Monroe Embossing Ink.
The clouds, the starburst, the sentiment strip, and the base layer of this card were all created using Princess Foiled Paper Variety Pack by Rinea. The clouds and the sentiment were created using Rinea‘s Ghost Ink and Catherine Pooler dies.
I first discovered Rinea’s products when I went to the Brutus Monroe Birthday Bash in December 2017. However, it wasn’t until I went to Creativation the following month that I really began to understand this product line. I am incredibly enamored by these products, and if you aren’t familiar with Rinea or Ghost ink I highly suggest you watch this video here.
