Uniko Reveal, Release and GIVEAWAY - June 2016

Hi there friends, I'm back with the 'delayed' DT Reveal, Release 
and Blog hop following the June release of stamp sets from 

There were 2 sets released earlier this month and there's been a few
sneaky peeks over the last few weeks but here's mine followed by
the images you'll need if you'd like to purchase the sets from HERE

Ok so super-girlie here in pink ...

This one uses images from both sets (Paradise & Paradise Leaves)
which I've used to create a background. There are some tone on tone
outline images to the plain stitched rectangle but not sure it's obvious 
in the photograph. The sentiment is from the Paradise set and I've fussy
cut one of the hibiscus and added some glossy accents for a little shine.

Yep I've gone a bit crazy here colouring Bob the Toucan and decided to 
make my Dad a father's day card. My thinking is it's my Dad sitting superior 
above all those other toucans! Hahahaha!

The sentiment is actually from a Paper Smooches set but thought it worked
well with the images. The 'bills / beaks' are coloured with Zig Clear Brush pens
and the leaves with Promarkers. I also added a little black spot with a
Promarker and and added some glossy accents for highlights.

Ooops perhaps I should show you the stamp sets here and then a few more examples.

Next up a mass-produced trio of tropical fun!

My inspiration came from THIS card by Yana Smakula
I love watching her You Tube tutorials and she makes lots of backgrounds 
using her stamps and typically on an A4 sheet of card to make multiples.

These didn't quite pan-out how I intended but here's two of them. 
Apart from the lime green the images are all stamped in Altenew inks.

So as tradition goes let's head to the blog hop ...
