[Uniko Studio] April 2013 Release - Introducing Pure Florals: Chrysanthemum

Hello Uniko friends! We're back on our last day of introductions. I hope you had as much fun as I am having. This blog is getting a good work out, with so many schedule posts ;) Thanks for dropping in and leaving us sweet comments. They are always appreciated.

I'm guessing you're coming from Nicki's blog? You know the drill by now. If not, then start at Bev's blog to not make sure you don't miss out on all the inspiration.

Did you see what Bev showed on Sneak Peek Day 3? Thankfully we don't have to guess, because my little vivid imagination might have said "wigs." What are your guesses?

Ok all joking aside, these are the next installments of Pure Florals. If Geberas aren't your thing, then these Chrysanthemums will knock your socks off. These are one of the most beautifully designed Chrysanthemums (and trust me I own a few from Papertrey Ink & Waltzingmouse Stamps to name a few). What I like the most is that they have both the positive and negative space designed in two sizes. Huge and less huge. I used both of them on my project. There are also a set of leaves for good measure and a set of very useful sentiments. A staple if you love flowers & sentiments.

You Are So Lovely
Stamps: (Pure Florals: Chrysanthemums) Uniko Studio
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - Rustic Cream, Lemon Tart) Papertrey Ink
Ink: (Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Antique Linen, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain; Jenni Bowlin - No. 5 Chicken Feed) Ranger
Embellishments: (The Sweetest Thing - Tangerine "Happy" Layered Stickers, Tangerine "Sunshine" Decorative Brad) My Mind's Eye

Remember my current love for Gold? I was tempted to stamp up a few golden Chrysanthemums. Instead I opted for a more neutral background stamping. This "almost one layer" has a lot of textures going on, because I layered chrysanthemums with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo on the rustic cream card stock.

I also decided to stamp a chrysanthemum on Lemon Tart card stock with some Chicken Feed ink. I like the little glowing effect is has. And to give the chrysanthemum the same kind of character I also distressed it a tad. A small little fitting sentiment that I pulled out of my stash and a cute orange brad. Don't look too close because I think the shades of oranges are all a tad different, but that's ok by me ;)

You Are So Lovely

I like the way the one chrysanthemum
contrasts with the neutral tones is the background. Great card.
