Time Out Challenge Reminder

As it's a Christmas themed challenge and because Uniko are the sponsors I thought I'd join in with Time Out's reminder post.

Grab Our Badge!

And I suppose the twist of pink and purple might have something to do with it too!

I started by stamping and heat embossing the tree from Rustic Christmas before brushing the pink and purple over it using a stencil. I did try it the other way round - stencil first then stamping - but ended up with a big smudge of embossing powder all over the inked waves.

I'm still waiting for my masking paper supplies to arrive so I used ordinary masking tape to get my crisp edge. I just took off some of the stickiness first by applying the tape to my trousers a couple of times before putting it on the card.

Loving this rainbow sparkle embossing powder.

Stamps: Uniko, Rustic Christmas
Inks: Memento, grape jelly, tuxedo black; SU, strawberry slush; Versamark
Embossing: Crafty Impressions, black rainbow sparkle
Stencil: Memory Box, Texture Wave

Don't forget there are fab prizes up for grabs - all you need to do is enter the challenge for a chance to win. What are you waiting for?

And even more Uniko fabulousness for you today - the first sneak peeks of the November release are out today.


They look intriguing don't they? Another two peeks tomorrow and then the introductions begin on Saturday. Can't wait!

Thanks for looking today. And keep crafting!
