Fairy with unicorn

Hello lovely people,

I've just completed the last 2 study days in Bath for my prescribing course and the next time I'm there it will be for the final assessments - eek!

So I think I deserve a few days of relaxation now and I have some exciting crafty things coming up soon that I can't talk about yet but will certainly keep me busy!

But now it's time for a new challenge at As You Like It


and our theme is...

YOUR FAVOURITE...type of embossing
...and don't forget to tell us why it's your favourite!

Our sponsor this time is Freckled Fawn with a $15 gift card


I don't use any form of embossing very much but when I do, it's always the Frantage that I reach for because it is so pretty and perfect for creating a magical feel.

I went back to my Copics to colour this lovely fairy and her unicorn, and added a few pearly dots around the image.
