Uniko - Challenge #34

Today sees the beginning of the new challenge at Uniko and it's such a classic theme this month you're all going to want to play - FLOWERS.


And here's my card:

I started by creating a watercoloured background with a small white border. Super easy to do this by using masking tape to hold the card down and it has the added bonus of stopping the card from curling too.

Once dry I stamped the hisbiscus flower repeatedly round the bottom corner using the masking technique to get depth. I then coloured just the pointy bit of the flowers - sure it must have a proper name! Finally I added the sentiments and some sequins.

Stamps: Uniko, Paradise
Inks: Ranger distress, mustard seed, picked raspberry, wilted violet; Memento, grape jelly
Promarkers: tulip yellow, pink carnation
Sequins from my stash

I know this is going to be a massive turn out challenge and I'm really looking forward to seeing all the flowers blooming in the gallery. Go check out the cards designed by my Uniko teamies and our lovely Guest Designer Carol from Just Me:C, then get picking your flowers.

So thrilled to have you drop by today, your time is much appreciated.  And keep crafting!
