I've got a couple of cards to share with you and hopefully get your creativity sparked. Here's the first:
I smooshed a splash of pool ink and some drips of black onto watercoloured card stock early in the morning and then left it to dry until later. I find this early morning watercolouring works best for impatient me because there's no time to stamp on top of it and I just have to walk away from it.
I wanted to create a sort of washi tape look on top of the smooshed ink and stamped chevrons and that awesome sentiment. Then I finished off by adding some star clusters and an off set extra star raised up on a pad to the sentiment.
Stamps: Uniko, All Occasion Sentiments #2, Background Builders Chevrons, Balloon Bash
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black; SU, coastal cabana
Die: Lil'inker, stitched mats rectangles
My next card is something completely different. I had this idea to create a pile of presents and used a few different Uniko stamps for the wrapping paper.
I just added a few touches of lime green as my splash of colour - really lifts the card I think.
Stamps: Uniko, A Gift For You, Background Builders Squared, Strik A Pose
Ink: Memento, tuxedo black
Dies: Cuttlebug, bow; Spellbinders, classic squares large; Lawn Fawn, large stitched square stackables
Embellishments: twine from my stash; Wink of Stella, clear
As always Bev has some really generous prizes on offer, check them out on the Uniko blog
