Tuesday Talk

The current challenge at Uniko Studio is Anything Goes or Anything Goes & this sketch.


 And Less is More want:
Jingle all the Way!
For this we would like to see some reference to any of these things.... bells, reindeer, Santa, elves, stockings, presents, decorations, Christmas songs/music/instruments... in fact anything Christmassy!

showCASed   Oh and a thank you for showcasing my card last week!

Well as you probably know I have a mass of Uniko Studio stamps, so even though it's not a requirement for their challenge I still went ahead and raided my stash to make this Christmas card. Only one present but I'm hoping that satisfies the criteria for Less is More.

I used a little square of hessian with the edges all frayed as a backdrop to my holographic in your face postage stamp. Kinda liking the contrast between the matte and shiny.

I stamped the parcel and bow onto Christmas paper before fussy cutting and mounting it onto pads.

I combined a sentiment from two different stamp sets and added three sequins to draw the eye.

Stamps: Uniko Studio, A Gift For You & All Occasion Sentiments#4
Inks: SU, cherry cobbler
Die: do crafts, postage stamp
Hessian, sequins, paper & card scraps from my stash

So glad you dropped by today, thanks for your time.
