Uniko - Reveal, Release & Blog Hop - October 2016

Whoopie! It's here!

Uniko October Release

Here's my release day takes with the new sets and
don't forget to hop along to the Uniko blog HERE for links
to my fellow teamies who've worked their magic with the set too!

First up a shaker card using the centre circle of the largest image
from Marvellous Mendhi which is filled with gold seed beads.
The 'Celebrate' Sentiment is from a previously released All Occasion 
Sentiments set and the 'Your Day' is from the new Simply Said II

This one uses the Christmas Foliage set and I've sneaked a 'Happy' greeting
and gold mini foliage stamp from the 'Essentially Christmas' set which
was released in time for Christmas last year. The 'Christmas' greeting is
from the Simply Said II set - released today!

Anything Goes so I'm heading across there with this one.

... and a couple more using the Originally Organic set and if you don't 
like colouring then these images work just as well using the outlines only.

For this first one I watercoloured with distress inks to create my background then
spritzed with water and perfect pearls before adding the outline stamps using
Versafine Onyx Black ink and a sentiment from the new Simply Said II

With this one I stamped the images first using Versamark ink then heat embossed
in Silver Pearl EP by wow then added brushos with water over the top followed
by the 'bleaching' technique with water to remove the pigment from the buds,
leaves and petals. This time I sneaked in a sentiment from the 
Paradise: Hummingbird set.

I hope you feel inspired and will be heading straight to the Uniko shop to buy!
