Calendar Girls February Postcard

This year each months calendar page is selected by a different member of the group.
This month it was Sandy's turn and the page she has selected is shown in the bottom picture.
I wanted to do something different this month although I kept thinking "embellisher" until I found that I had a stamp of a unicorn that I could use.
I know he is facing the wrong way but what the heck it is still a unicorn .
I painted layers of different acrylic paints onto tyvek until I got the effect that I was looking for -then I added some Jo Sonja's interference paint to give it a bit of zing.
Next I used the heat gun to get the textured look that I was after and finally added some "Goldfinger" to the raised sections.
The unicorn was stamped onto black card using a Versamark stamp pad and some gold and green embossing powders were added and then heated with the heat gun.
I cut the card into a circle and stitched it to the Tyvek.
I hope Carol Likes it.






Here is the calendar page that we are working from this month.






This years challenge is very interesting with such a variety of calendar pages--if you want to see how the other girls have interpreted this page take a look here.

Clever interpretation Doreen. I always have trouble bubbling my Tyvec. Wish it would stay flatter like yours.It is either too much or too little. One day I will get it right.
Cheers
Shirley
