Uniko Sponsoring Time Out Challenges

Morning friends I'm here on behalf of Uniko who are 
sponsoring the Time Out Challenge today

The theme is Christmas with the optional twist of using 
Pink and / or Purple so I've twisted ... it would be rude not to!!!

I started out by stamping and heat-embossing the sentiment and images from 
the Big and Bold Snow set from Uniko and a snowflake from Stunning Snowflakes.
The embossing powder is Hero Arts clear sparkle and having taped the panel of 
watercolour card to a board I literally drenched it with water using a 
large 'wash' brush. I then added stripes of distress inks in Dusty Concord, 
Seedless Preserves, Picked Raspberry and Worn Lipstick. Once dry I added another 
layer of ink, dried again then spritzed it with a mix of water and 
perfect pearls to add some shimmer! The panel is then die-cut using
Mama Elephant Index Card dies with a white panel behind die-cut from the same set.

There's loads more inspiration from the DT at Time Out Challenges 
plus some of my fellow teamies at Uniko have also joined in so 
please head over to the Uniko blog HERE for more details.

Quick Edit: Thanks for the 'heads-up' Deborah - I'm linking up at
52 Christmas Card Throwdown with this card as the theme there is
Emboss Resist! Simply couldn't 'resist' playing along!

Thanks as always for stopping by and I hope you have a little
'time out' to play along with the challenge.
