Uniko - Challenge #35

Hello and welcome. Today sees the start of a new challenge at Uniko and this month we'd like your cards to be inspired by a song title.

Well my decision for today's DT card was really easy - Paradise by Coldplay. And I've used the Uniko stamp set with the same title.

I had this image in my head of those tropical shirts that were, maybe still are, popular to wear on tropical holidays. So I hand cut a shirt shape and then got busy stamping the toucan and leaves in suitable tropical colours.

That was the easy bit, then I needed to work out how to turn the shirt shape into a card!

Supplies :
Stamps: Uniko, Oaradise, Paradise Leaves
Inks: SU, daffodil delight, tempting turquoise, pear pizzazz, emerald envy; Memento, tuxedo black 

Bet you've already got favourite songs jumping around in your head. Well before you break out your supplies take a peek at the Uniko DT cards - here - to discover which songs they've been singing. And while you're there check out the prize too.

Thanks for dropping by my blog today, your visit and time is always greatly appreciated.  And keep crafting!
