Uniko - Pure Florals Gerbera Revisited

WOW! WOW! WOW!

This has to be THE most special thing that has happened since I started blogging - I've been asked to join the Uniko Design Team. HUGE excitement! Can't even begin to tell you how thrilled I am,  my feet haven't touched the floor since I got the ask!


So my very first post as a member of Uniko's DT is to join in with the blog hop to revisit the beautiful Pure Florals Gerbera stamp set. New releases are every other month and revisits are the in-between months.



So tah dah - here's my first take:



I based the layout on a photo I found on Pinterest. I made myself a board all about gerberas while I was round at my dad's - it satisfied the desire to create a little! Here's the link.

And here's the one that sparked my imagination:

YOUTUBE CHANNEL:https://www.youtube.com/user/TheFederic777  FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/GardenFlowers2015  http://tips-to-help-you-the-gerberas-2.blogspot.com/   #Video #gerberas #flowers

I also printed a copy before going home and my dad's printer doesn't get used that often and the yellows had got blocked so it came out pink. And that's my excuse for indulging my passion for pink and purple colours. Yeah, if you follow me you'll know that I would probably have used those colours anyway!



I loved the raindrops on the photo and tried to emulate them by using glossy accents. I think it works quite well.



Supplies:
Stamps:
Uniko, Pure Florals Gerbera
Ink: Memento, tuxedo black
Colours: Promarkers, marsh green, purple, vanilla; Flexmarker, shocking pink
Die: Lil'inker, stitched mats rectangles
Embellishments: Glossy Accents; sequins from my stash

And I just couldn't resist making another card. And this one does have some yellow, but yeah I know, still mostly pink.



And I actually managed to get a shot that shows the beautiful glisten of the Wink of Stella.



Supplies:
Stamps:
Uniko, Pure Florals Gerbera
Ink: Memento, tuxedo black, rose bud, dandelion
Embellishment: Wink of Stella, clear

Here's the blog hop order:

Jane (that's me) 

As my second card uses the colours of sunset I'm going to pop it into the current challenge at Less is More.

We'd love you to display our banner

And also at Addicted To Stamps where they want Summer Colours.
