Uniko Challenge #46

Hi there, I'm here with our latest challenge over at Uniko and here's the cue card to explain what's required, if you've been following the blog you'll have seen half of the design team announced the challenge a few weeks ago but I'm here with a reminder. 

... and here's my first card using the Uniko Style Floral set with a 'Happy' Sentiment from the Festive Sentiments set, released at the end of last year and the 'Some Bunny' set for the word 'Easter'. I've stamped the images and sentiments with Altenew Inks as they're great for layering in the colour families. 

For my second card I used the Organics Additions set and stamped the images in more Altenew Inks. They didn't stamp quite as brightly as I would have liked so I added some additional shading with Promarker pens in similar colours. The mini florals are mainly from the Background Builders: Vines set and Flower Power. It's amazing what you find that mixes and matches with Uniko sets when you flick through all the stamp sets. Having recently changed my storage set up into 2 large ringbinders with x-cut pocket inserts for my Uniko stamps, it's now so much easier to find what I'm looking for. 

I'd like to link this one up at Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge as they are having one of their 'Anything Goes' weeks! 

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is Michele Ferguson, one of our previous Uniko Challenge winners. Do pop along and visit her blog and leave a friendly word and some love.

  5. Mega-watt smiles in seeing your duo of delight, Sarah! Love those Uniko Style Florals (I agree with Michele...olives them a lot, too!) sporting their spring colours. And the Organic Additions heart...swoon!

  6. LOVING your choices of Uniko stamp sets to use. I think Uniko Style looks fabulous in a rainbow of pastel shades and the cloud style scallop border die cut works wonderfully with it. Your use of Originally Organic Additions is always inspiring and I can't wait to see what you create using the matching dies coming soon!! Hugs Bev x
