Uniko Challenge #30

Hello there friend, it's time for a new challenge at Uniko and 
being a couple of days before the official start of springtime
... our theme is Spring / Easter

You have until Friday, 8th April to get your creations in
so plenty of time and here's my card.

My card is rather blue but my inspiration behind it is the clearer skys and 
lighter nights (in the UK) along with some floral delights in the garden!

I started out by heat embossing the outline florals from Beautiful Blooms II
in white Hero Arts EP then blending distress inks in Tumbled Glass, 
Broken China and Peacock Feathers, keeping the darker shades to the edges.
Having bleached the distress ink from the petals with clear water,
I've used an Altenew ink to add the next layer to the flowers, added a sentiment 
circle, die-cut from Simon Says Stamp: Stitched Circle Dies, 'Hello' from the 
All Occasion Sentiments collection and 'Spring' from Some Bunny.
To finish some coordinating sequins from my stash!

I hope you feel inspired to play along and don't forget to head
across to the main blog HERE where my fellow teamies have some
awesome creations to put you in that springtime mood!

Plus and a huge big drum-roll too we have a more AMAZING inspiration
for this challenge from the totally wonderful Cornelia of fun-stamping
If you've never visited Cornelia's blog you have been misisng a massive
explosion of talent, technique and inspiration! I do hope you'll stop by
and leave here some love.

Thanks for stopping by and I'll be back tomorrow with a new
challenge from Less is More so hope to see you then!
