Uniko Challenge #27

The last challenge for 2015 starts today at Uniko. And of course the theme is Christmas but with an optional twist of making it CAS.


Well I'm not sure if my card is strictly CAS, but I have used some of my all time favourite colours so it makes me smile. And I absolutely adore this stamp set.

I created the background by applying the ink pad directly to my heat mat and spritzing it with water before using a speedball roller to spread it randomly over the card. I'm quite taken with the subtle cloudy effect this produces. The snowflakes and tiny baubles were stamped in the same colour but look like a deeper shade as the ink has not been diluted.



And did I enjoy colouring the large doily? You bet I did! Reminded me of all those adult colouring patterns that the shops are full of at the moment - now there's a great diy idea for a Christmas present.

Supplies:
Stamps: Uniko, Decorative Doilies, Flower Power #9, Rustic Christmas, Big & Bold Snow, Simply Said Christmas
Inks: Adirondack, pool; SU, rich razzleberry
Pens: Promarker, soft green; SU, stampin'write rich razzleberry; Sakura, gelly roll
Embellishments: Papermania, adhesive shimmer dots

This month we have Shona and Jen joining us as Guest Designers and of course the rest of the multi talented Uniko DT have also made cards for you to use as starting points. See them all here.

And as always the lovely generous Bev is giving away awesome prizes - check them out here. So what have you got to lose? Enjoy the crafting and maybe win a prize!

So pleased you dropped by my blog today. Thank you! How about coming back this evening when my next Let's December Daily post goes live?

And keep crafting!
