Uniko - Introducing Natures Treasures II & Challenge #25

Today sees the final introduction of the Uniko September release and also the start of a new Uniko Challenge. The theme for this month's challenge is Fall/Autumn with the optional twist of THANKS.

So this final set is a bit of a gift really allowing me to combine the two things in one card.

I've been loving all the cards I've seen around blogland recently that have a vertical strip created by masking off an area of the card, so I thought I'd give it a go. I used colours that I think are quintessentially Autumnal and blended them together with my Inkylicious duster brushes.

I removed the mask and stamped the two large leaf stamps from this set so that parts of them just overlapped the vertical strip. The addition of another sentiment from that new set - introduced here - finished off my card perfectly.

Stamps: Uniko, Natures Treasures II, All Occasion Sentiments #6
Inks: SU, daffodil delight, tangelo twist, real red, baked brown sugar 

We have two fabulous Guest Designers joining us for Challenge #25 - Ardyth and Pauline. Be sure to visit their blogs for outstanding inspiration and leave them some love while you're there.

So that concludes the introductions of the Uniko September release. Be sure to come back tomorrow when the entire release will be fully revealed and check out all the DT cards and join in the blog hop. As always there will be the chance to win all the new stamp sets just by visiting and leaving comments along the way. Put it in your diary, planner, phone notification, on the kitchen board or whatever you use!

Thanks for visiting today, I'm so pleased you spent some time here looking at my blog.
