  1. Hi Kim, What a cute little unicorn...love how you rainbow colored the mane! My favorite coloring medium is any kind of watercolor, whether with ink, paint, watercolor pencils, etc. I like the control of a brush but do want to try some methods that are unpredictable, like the distress inks. Thanks for the chance to win!
