Uniko January BA Blog Hop

Today I'm here to tell you all about the January Brand Ambassador Blog Hop that's going on at Uniko.

January is a non-release month so the Uniko Brand Ambassadors are featuring the gorgeous Hello Lovely stamp set instead. I know you are going to want to win this beautiful stamp, so head on over to the Uniko blog to find out all the details.

Here's my card:

I started by preparing a water coloured background using four oxide inks on an acrylic block, a technique I shared on the Uniko blog earlier this month  - HERE.

Once this was dry I then stamped and heat embossed the floral cluster on top. I hand cut it and popped it up onto foam pads and matted it onto a black circle. The greeting, also from this stamps set, was haet embossed in white onto the black circle before I adhered the bloom.

I then matted a purple pearlescent strip of paper onto a white card black and adhered the cluster and black circle on top.

Stamps: Uniko, Hello Lovely
Inks: Ranger Distress Oxide, pine needles, picked raspberry, peacock feathers, wilted violet; Versamark clear + WOW! primary ebony & opaque bright white embossing powders
Die: MFT Die-namics, double stitched circles

Here's the blog hop list to help you find your way around. Good luck!

Thanks so much for looking. Stay safe and keep crafting!
