Rare & Extraordinary

I am all about the narwhals, right now. I have some new sets and a couple of old ones with narwhals. They're like water unicorns so how could I not get them?!

With this card I went really clean and simple. Thanks to my friend, Kerry, for the idea to use the C9 Lace Leaf shadow as water. How clever is that? You know I love stretching my supplies! I sprinkled a few of the clear dots around--did you know you can color those with Copics? I happened to have some blue ones on hand but thought about coloring one a shade darker. I did add some additional water splashes using Glossy Accents. You can just see those in the pic. The narwhal is popped up and is so girly girl with blush and additional eyelashes drawn in with a Copic Multiliner 0.1. Naturally the horn and sentiment are in gold--remember, water unicorn!
