Uniko Challenge #33

Well having only just got over the excitement of the Uniko new release here we go with June's chalenge.  This month it's a picture inspiration and we'd like to see it reflected in your cards.

I started my card by stamping a block of each colour from the picture across a piece of wet watercolour card. I then sprayed it to make it even wetter and allowed the colours to dribble down the card. Then the really difficult bit - leaving it to dry!



So I walked away and did some boring ironing and came back to it later on once it was well and truly dry. Then I stamped the sentiment and the patterned squares, matching each colour as i went.


Supplies:
Stamps: Uniko, Background Builders Squared, All Occasion Sentiments #3
Inks: SU, smoky slate, regal rose; Mememnto, teal xeal, cantaloupe, tuxedo black

Have you seen all the other DT cards? - click here. Of course you have and aren't they amazing? So looking forward to seeing how you're inspired by this month's fabulous picture.

Thanks so much for spending some of your precious time looking at my blog today, you're all stars! And keep crafting!

  5. Such a fun and clever idea Jane with fantastic use of the colours.
    Love the flow of colours 'dribbling' down the card and I know how hard it is to leave things to dry! I'm too impatient and have to get the old heat gun out but it's always smoother when left to dry naturally. x

  8. This is totally stunning, Jane! I love the contrast between the geometric shapes and fluid colours. I shall have to try this (without the ironing break!!).
