Good morning, hope I find you well.
Today the Uniko DT are revisiting one of our older stamp sets Fun Flowers and the new coordinating stencil.
For my first card I've kept it very simple, using just one flower from the stencil and a few of the stamps in the set.
I started by masking off just one of the large flowers from the stencil and inking through with some Worn Lipstick DOx then using a small piece of foam inked the center again with Picked Raspberry DOx. Very carefully I also inked the small dots with the darker ink. Using a black fineliner, I drew the stem then added a couple of leaves with the stamp set. To sharpen up the bloom, I stamped the largest of the stamp set, the next largest and the smallest in black ink.
Using a pierced rectangle die I cut out the flower and mounted it on a slightly larger rectangle inked with the two pinks around the edge before attaching it to a scalloped edged die cut panel and then onto a white base card. The sentiment from the Simply Said Blocks set was stamped in black then heat embossed with semi dull clear EP, trimmed down and added over the flower stem.
My second card focuses more on the stencil but still uses the stamps as well and a sentiment from the Pure Floral - Gerbera set.
The coloured panel was created as a result of a failed attempt to bleach away colour through the stencil with a baby wipe. There was a lot of DOx ink in Abandoned Coral, Fossilized Amber and Spiced Marmalade left on the stencil so waste not want not, I spritzed it lightly with water and pressed it onto a scrap panel of white card. Some of the panel was a little messy but I think I managed to rescue it by stamping the small daisy stamp in the same DOx colours as well as a few dots of the same and trimming it down in size. AAA are asking us to use 1/3 so I trimmed my panel down and added two more on pads edged with strips inked with the same DOx colours as the panel.
That's it from me but please check out the rest of the team and check out what they have done with the stamps and stencil.
