Guest Designer Rosemary!

Happy Tuesday everyone! It's Guest DT Rosemary here today sharing another rainbow card I created using the Unicorns and Glitter Clear Stamp Set. A new RAINBOWS Challenge started on Sunday so be sure to play along!
I colored this adorable unicorn using Copic Markers. It's generally my go-to coloring medium.
Unicorn: BV20 BV23, Colorless Blender
Pink: RV02, RV06, RV09
Orange: YR02, YR04, YR09
Yellow: Y11, YR23, YR27
Green: YG23, YG67, G28
Teal: BG10, BG15, BG78
Purple: V15, V17, BV08
Star Dust Stickles
To create the card, I cut out two rectangles: one from watercolor paper and one from regular cardstock. You can use the Rectangle Dies 1 or Rectangle Dies 2 to do this step. On the regular cardstock, I drew a cloud design in the corner, and then cut it out using scissors. I distressed the edges of the cloud with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink and stamped one of the sentiments from the Unicorns and Glitter set. Next, I positioned the cloud cut-out and unicorn on the watercolor paper where I wanted it (don't glue it down yet!), and then used a pencil to lightly sketch out the rainbow design. I removed the unicorn and cloud and placed them to the side. I picked out my watercolor markers and added color along the bottom sketched lines. Then, I took a wet paintbrush and spread the ink towards the upper lines. Once that was dry, I covered the rainbow area with scrap paper, scribbled ink onto my acrylic block, added water to it, and use my paintbrush to splatter watercolor around.
To finish off the card, I used foam tape to adhere the cloud and unicorn to the card.

Shipping Updates!

HI Jaded Blossom Customers,

As some of you know we are a small business consisting of 2 owners – Candace & Michelle.  Candace is located in California and handles the computer side of the business, whereas Michelle is located in Idaho and does the shipping side of the business.

Michelle’s family has been in self quarantine for the last 3 weeks and will continue to do so. This is a precaution, not because anyone is sick but to protect her family.  What does this mean? Usually she ships orders everyday and takes them to the Post Office daily.  Since she has isolated her family from people she is having the Postal carrier pick up packages every few days.

All products coming from Jaded Blossom are safe.  All stamps, dies and stencils are MADE IN THE USA like they have always been. We have always been proud to put that on our product and know that we are helping our country.

Jaded Blossom will continue to ship products but instead of the 24 hour turn around it may be 2-3 days. We don’t want to overload the Post Office by having them come to us everyday for pickup.

We want to thank all of our customers,
And wish everyone health !!!

Michelle & Candace
Jaded Blossom Owners
