Unicorn Celebration

Since I've been so busy with end of semester finals and family activities I wasn't able to get my card done for this week's Tuesday Throwdown challenge. Please do check out the design team's projects. They're beautiful and we have an awesome prize from our sponsor, Stamploration.  
Last weekend with all the celebrations going on in our family which includes an anniversary, Veterans' Graduation, and  commencement ceremony I also squeezed in about half an hour to go to my local stamp shop for their anniversary celebration. It's a perfect time to go make something and take advantage of their awesome sale special.

Sweet As Honey

Today is Team B's turn for Tuesday Throwdown's weekly challenge. This week we are being sponsored by Honey Bee Stamps. They have the most adorable stamps. I chose to use this sweet set called Sweet As Honey. The theme for this week's challenge is "clear."

I really had to think about what I would like to use my my clear element to incorporate into my card. I ended up going out to the store to buy some shrink plastic to make a shaker card. The weight of the shrink plastic is nice and thick so it worked out quite well. I embossed the honey jar and watercolored  it using Kuretake's Gansai Tambi watercolor. The bee and the honey jar was popped up using foam tape. Last was to stamp the sentiment.
Now it's time to head on over to the TT blog  for more DT inspirations and enter this week's challenge to win a fun prize from our sponsor.

Stamps: Honey Bee Stamps (Sweet As Honey)
Papers: Watercolor, Bristol white, shrink plastic
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Kuretake Gansai Tambi #42 and #43
Accessories: A Muse Studio (gold embossing powder, mixed sequins)
