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!
