Thursday Thoughts

A card for the current challenge at Uniko Studio today.

I'm sure everyone is aware of my love for Uniko Studio stamps and right from when I first discovered them Beverley has left such kind comments and encouragement that it makes them a double pleasure to use.  Last month I was thrilled to make their top 3 honourable mentions which has left me all buoyed up and ready for their new challenge.

[Uniko Studio Challenge] No. 10 - Thinking of You 


Having experimented with a shaker card on Tuesday, I decided to give it another go.  This time I wanted it to be more of female card so I opted for the Uniko Studio flower die, in two sizes, to make my window.  

Once again I used funky foam and card with acetate sandwiched between them to make the raised aperture needed to hold the sequins. I then adhered some pretty paper slightly offset onto the top card layer.

Before adhering the window to my base card I masked off the centre portion using the discarded punched out centre of the flower and stamped a border with the oh so versatile Background Builders Vines stamp set.


I decided to stamp the sentiment on a strip of card to make it more prominent and finished off by popping a Wink of Stella sparkle to the middle of all the flowers.


So two shaker cards completed now - quite liking the effect and they are kind of fun!

Supplies:
Stamps: Uniko Studio, Background Builders Vines, All Occasion Sentiments #2 & #5, Flower Power #1 & #2
Inks: Memento, teal zeal, lulu lavender; SU, bermuda bay, pool party; Adirondack, watermelon; Kaleidacolor, berry blaze
Paper: NitWit, Bonnets & Bowties
Die: Uniko Studio, graphic flowers time
Embellishments: Kuretake, Wink of Stella clear
Sequins & funky foam from my stash
