Flying Unicorn May Kit - Two Tags

The Flying Unicorn May Your Passion Your Art Kit is available now, featuring Prima's stunning Cartographer line and the equally lovely 7 Dots Studio Nature Walk collection. Be sure to get yours ASAP - they won't last and this is truly one you don't want to miss out on. 

This kit was a pleasure to work with, with project after project coming together seamlessly.

Today I am sharing two tags I made with Cartographer and a Julie Nutting Die-Cut/Stamp combo set. I love the way these two tags are so different even though they started out with the same "ingredients". The first is steampunky, while the second is more on the punk rock side.

Here they are in greater detail:

The Cartographer papers are great for vintage-feeling clothing. I added buttons to the coat using the Viva Pearl Pen from the kit, and turned back the bottom to add a bit of movement and give the illusion of a lined coat. I hand-cut a skirt to go under the coat.

The hole in the gears from the Cartographer wooden icons is just the perfect size to fit the top of one of the Julie Nutting tags. I secured mine with an eyelet from my stash. I love the colour of the wood icons - they are blonde on one side and a roasted colour on the other (which I've chosen to use here).

The wood icons are also great for layering (above) or as standalone pieces (below).


From the kit: 

- Prima Cartographer papers: Carte, Montgolfiere, Marveilleux
- Prima Cartographer ATCs
- Prima Cartographer Wood Icons

From my stash:

- Liquid Pearls - Bisque
- Eyelet

For my second tag I wanted to go with the darker side of the Cartographer line, adding some gold accents and just a touch of aubergine (on her corrugated cardboard skirt).

The printed chipboard stickers are perfect little focal points in your clusters.

Some gold bows on her boots.

I dressed up the top of the tag with a Flying Unicorn Adornment in the hole of the tag and some of the lace and Prima Black Wire Thread from the kit.

Pearl paints are a great way to add a quick and effective finishing touch to the project.
