Uniko Challenge #32

Today sees the start of the May Uniko Challenge and this month we want to see masculine cards. Right up my street then!

Here's my card:

I started my card by smooshing some mustardy yellow ink onto watercolour card - how brave is that using a yellow instead of blue? Once this was dry I stamped the black elements and added a trio of same colour as the background star clusters to highlight the main sentiment.

I balanced the star clusters with a couple of enamel dots to finsih off my card.

Stamps: Uniko, All Occasion Sentiments #2, Simply Said, Background Builders Triangulate, stars from Balloon Bash
Ink: SU, hello honey; Memento, tuxedo black
Embellishments: Doodlebug sprinkles, beetle black asst.

We have a wonderful Guest Designer joining us this month - Tanja - so do go check out her blog. As always there are superb prizes to be won - check them out and the DT inspirational creations here at Uniko.

Thanks for visiting today, I really value your time.  And keep crafting!
