Being Saturday, we've also got a brand new challenge for you at the KKS Blog. This week out lovely hostess is the talented Amanda, and her challenge is to use Kraft Cardstock on your project!

I've inked up my favourite image from the "Three Wishes" set, this adorable unicorn! Confession time: I loved unicorns as a child and teen..actually, I still love them. :) I collected unicorn figurines when I was younger and you could find them plastered all around my room from pictures, to calenders, to might say I had an addiction, lol. While I no longer choose to decorate my house with unicorns, I do still love them. :)  So I was thrilled when I saw that Kimmie would be releasing this unicorn by Annie Rodrigue as a stamp! I decided to keep with a very simple layout by using this pretty scenic paper from DCWV's Once Upon a Time collection. I used my Classic Corner Dies by SCACD and a Memory Box die as embellishments along with some rhinestones.

The "Three Wishes" unicorn was stamped in Memento Ink and coloured with Copic markers. I also added some additional shading with a black Conte crayon and paper blending stump. I was going for a "dappled" look, but I think it fell a bit short on the's kind of subtle. For fun, I gave him a purple mane and tail. :)

Body: W00, W1, W3, W5, W7, W9, BV29, black Conte Crayon   Mane and Tail: RV00, V12, V5, V09, BV29

Here's shot of the inside where I stamped the unicorn again in purple ink and included one of the sentiments from the Three Wishes kit:
