Uniko Studio - Challenge #21


Morning Crafty pals it's time for a new challenge at 

The theme is Flowers which ties in brilliantly with the
latest Flower Power set, released earlier this month.

We also have a birthday girl on the Design Team
 Beverley (Owner & Designer of Uniko) was celebrating yesterday
so this card will hopefully have found it's way to her door.



Card Recipe:

To begin with I've created a delicate wash using Tumbled Glass DI
onto Tim Holtz water-colour card before heat-embossing the outline florals
with Hero Arts Clear Sparkle embossing powder. 
The flowers are painted in Scattered Straw, Worn Lipstick and Wild Honey.
A 'Happy' die from Hero Arts is inlaid into the circular panel and then mounted on 3d foam.
 The 'birthday' is from Uniko Studio: Classic Numbers set

I hope you'll get chance to play along and do remember there's more fabulous
inspiration from the design team; details over on the Uniko Studio blog

We've got some extra super talent for this challenge too from 
Jane, Purplejetlovescrafts and Carol, JustMeC

These 2 ladies are loyal Uniko Studio followers and certainly
know how to showcase the sets so if you've never visited them before
please make sure you do and leave them some love.

As always thanks for popping in to view my cards
and I'll be back tomorrow with another challenge from 
Less is More

Bye for now!
