Uniko - Introducing BG Blocks Nautical Stripes & Fleur De Lis / Anchors Stencils

Hey! I'm back with Day 3 of our introductions to the new release goodies from Uniko, available from Friday, 26th July.

Today we're introducing another Background Block to add to the expanding range; this time Nautical Stripes. There's 2 fantastic coordinating stencils too; Fleur de Lis and Anchors - all of which team well with the previously released Nautical Treasures, which makes a 'come-back' this month too.

for this one I started out by inky blending distress inks in Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Mermaid Lagoon and Chipped Sapphire to create a gradual blend. Next up I used the anchor stencil and blended in the 3 darker colours. A sprinkling of water with perfect pearls finished the background before adding a popped up sailing boat with the sails stamped using the new background! A couple of flag banner sentiments finishes this nautical themed card.

Who says sailing boats have to be masculine! Here's a different look with the new Background block this time with the sailing boat coloured with Promarkers and stencilled sails using the Fleur de lis stencil. This simple sentiment is by Clearly Besotted - Bev I think we need some travel themed sentiments!!! 

As ever, the release schedule, can be found over on the Uniko blog HERE as well as links and peeks at how my fellow teamies have worked their magic! As well as the regular Design Team we're also joined by the delightful and super talented Keren Baker so why not pop along and visit her blog - you won't be disappointed.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll be back for more introductions tomorrow.
