Unicorn in Autumn

     We all know about unicorns, though some will tell you they are only a mythical creature.  I am of a different persuasion.  I believe unicorns are like pocket dragons - just because you don't see them doesn't mean they are only a fantasy.

     I've been told by a lovely garden fairy that unicorns change the colors of their manes and tales seasonally, like the leaves of a tree.  Hmmm, that would give them an advantage when it comes to hiding in plain sight, wouldn't it?  Let me give you an example of what might happen.

     Fabrika Fantasy has one of the most magnificent unicorn images which I chose for this card.  Notice how his mane, tail, and hooves blend in perfectly with the fall foliage, and his body takes on the pale shadows of the low-light dawn?


I used the sketch from Cheerful Sketches.


Colored with ProMarkers and gel inks plus sparkle on the horn
Die cut with Spellbinders and distressed on the edges
Polka dot washi tape
Doily colored dark brown
Hand made bow with polka dots
Kraft card base

Yes, that's a magnificent image and thank you for the facts about unicorns. My granddaughter is now in the unicorn love mode. Right now I'm just buying her stickers....guess I need to go find an easy die cut image. You did a gorgeous job on the coloring. WOW!

Beautiful card. If a garden fairy tell you something it must be true. I feel better informed to know about seasonal changes on unicorns.
