Chubby Unicorn Launched!

First project for the new DT at Witt & Sass Stamp Company! This is Chubby Unicorn! She is not only part of a great stamp set, but also the logo of the company. Because she is fabulous.

This is the 4x8 stamp set I used.  It stamps beautifully, crystal clear impressions and all the stamps are nicely cut.

You might be wandering about sizing, so I have to tell you, I asked the original artist and stamp owner if I could scan and resize Chubby so she was big enough for me to colour with coloured pencils, the way I like to. Luckily she said it was fine, so in my version she is twice the size she normally is. Generally it's good ettiquette to use stamps at the size they are intended, but if you want to blow something up, or use it differently for a project I also recommend asking the artist if it's ok.

So I added some cloud detail and stars and then one of the sentiments from the stamp set and coloured with polychromo pencils. I also finished the card with some white posca pen, stickles and glossy accents. 

Background paper is from the stash, and she is on a 7x5" kraft card blank.

If you are not already, why not join up to the Witt and Sass facebook group? It's a great way to keep up to date with everything that's going on, keep and eye out for giveaways and prizes!


  1. I absolutely love your card of CHUBBY the UNICIRN. I had no idea you could scan a stamp to make it print out larger. Brilliant idea and I'm sure many people don't know about this little trick. Asking the designer is also great etiquette and a MUST do, what if we don't know who designed them though? Xxx

    1. Hi Andrea! :) I'd just pop a message to the company that owns the stamp, or try to the best of your abilities to contact the company/stamp owner and ask. It's not always possible though, generally I have found people to be extremely helpful and interested in why and seeing the result, which is nice :) x

  2. I love it Annabel! and Congratulations on your new DT post!
    xoxo Olga
