Uniko May Release Day Blog Hop

At last it's the day you've been looking forward to - the full reveal and chance to buy Uniko's amazing new May release!

Here it is:

And before I get on to the blog hop order and details of how to win I've some cards to share.

My first card uses the new Flower Power #8 and a simple monochromatic colour scheme. I just added three tiny pops of red into the mix using some sparkly gems in the flower centres.

My next card is super quick and easy. Just some splodges of water colour applied using a small acrylic block, overstamped with the hexagons from Bee Happy and another of those pretty pink bees that was left over from last Sunday's cards.

Loving the curly fronds extending from the bee sentiment stamps!

And finally the baby wipe ink technique I was talking about yesterday combined with the gorgeous Just Because silhouette.

I simple folded a baby wipe and placed it on an acrylic block for stability and then dropped the three colours onto it from re-inker bottles. The colours then merge because of the wetness of the baby wipe and I used it like a regular ink pad. Fabulous technique for getting a mix of colours that's unique and every stamping comes out a little different.

Stamps: Uniko, Flower Power #8, Bee Happy, Just Because
Inks: Versafine, onyx black; Ranger distress, picked raspberry, mustard seed, spiced marmalade;Ranger distress refil, picked rapsberry, salty ocean, peacock feathers
Dies: MFT Dienamics, peek-a-boo circle window
Embellishments: Bling Bling, red gems

Now on to the bit that's really exciting - the details of how to win: Simply comment along the hop for your chance to win the ENTIRE Release!! You have until Midnight (GMT) Saturday 19th May 2018 to comment and the winner will be announced soon after.
