Let's Try Something New

 Three cards today - all with Bugaboo digital images.  Bugaboo is the sponsor for the September challenge at Die Cut Diva's Challenge.  So what is the challenge this month?  Something new - a new technique or new supplies or new image.  You get the point.
 So for my first card - a new image.
This is one Bugaboo image I just had to have.  My 5 year old granddaughter loves unicorns.  She makes horns out of empty paper towel rolls, taping that to a headband so she can be a unicorn.  I know she will like this one.

The border piece is punched, the flowers are made with a Cuttlebug die, clouds with a MFT die.
That little flower gem has been in my stash for years.
Coloring was done with Prisma pencils.

Next card:
This is a fun technique.  Crumple up (wad up into a ball) some wax paper.  Smooth it out.  Sandwich it between two pieces of glossy paper and then iron it.  After the two pieces are cool, heavily sponge on ink and then wipe off excess with a paper towel.  Result - great BG paper for animal images.
Another new thing I tried was a different look for the clouds.  I have sponged before but this time I used a large round daubber but only used the edges.  I like the round streaky look.
Balloons are covered with liquid glaze.  Sentiment is cut out with a Spellbinders die.

Last card:
Another new image and I must confess I have used newspaper before and have put "coffee rings" on before but maybe this is a new idea for you.
This gal really reminds me of myself in the morning (just wish I were that thin! )  Sentiment is by Doodle Pantry and was cut out with a Spellbinder die.

So what will you do that is new?  Come join the fun at Die Cut Diva's Challenge
