Flying Unicorn Small Art, Big Passion

Flying Unicorn's monthly Small Art, Big Passion kit is perfect as an add on to our main kit but works equally well as a standalone kit. When I got this month's kit I was so inspired I had to put aside what I was working on and whip up a card using nothing but the Small Art kit and a little gauze from my stash.

I wanted the little wooden watering can to have a weathered appearance. I painted it with a thick coat of modelling paste for texture, and when it was nearly dry added some Inklingz and Pop Art Pink spray from the kit. If the modelling paste was still slightly wet you get a little movement, which leads to white patches showing through, as you can see below. Once it was dry, I topped it with one of the stickers from the kit.

A little masking with the Tim Holtz Doily stencil, and some machine stitching...

And some gorgeous flowers and gauze...

And voila - a quick and elegant card!
