[Uniko Studio] Challenge No. 6 - Sketch

Hi everyone - did you miss us? We enjoyed our much needed break, but it's a new year. We're back to the swing of things and are starting things off with a easy peasy challenge: a sketch.

None other than our talented Gayatri has put this together. So make sure to go leave her some love!

Mine is super quick. I was looking for a graphic look. I also loved the paper that I found floating on my desk. Isn't it great when we find a starting point?

Thank You
Stamps: (Background Builders - Round in Circles; All Occasion Sentiments #3) Uniko Studio
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - White) Papertrey Ink; (Corey Add-on Kit - pattern paper) Studio Calico
Ink: (Creative Color Pigment Ink - Winter, Ocean) Mama Elephant; (Memento - Tuxedo Black) Tsukineko
Embellishments: (Wood Veneer - Sundrifter) Studio Calico

I wanted to add layer on the pattern paper by stamping a bunch of circles from the Background Builder set. I love how Winter matches the paper so well and adds a subtle piece of interest. To match the sketch a bit, I picked another design from that same set and stamped it a more bolder Ocean color.

Thank You

Finally I just added a sentiment and decided to "scatter" a few wood veneer pieces that also had triangles & circles to match the stamping and the paper. It felt quite good to go about the card without much plans and just "throw" stuff onto the card front. 

Thank You

Check out the rest of the girl's cards and leave them a sweet comment or two. Remember you don't have to use all the colors - any or all as an inspiration.

[Uniko Studio] January Revisited Blog Hop - Accent Essentials: Arrows

Hello there - my first post of the year. So many things have been happening, all not very happy ones, but on the upside, it just means 2014 is only going to get better.

I'm here to show you a great fun older set: Accent Essentials: Arrows.

It's just a quick graphic card, where I used the arrows

Stamps: (Accent Essentials: Arrows) Uniko Studio
Paper: (Perfect Match Card Stock - White, Raspberry Fizz) Papertrey Ink

Ink: (Creative Color - Blush) Mama Elephant
Embellishments: (Hey Script Die) Memory Box; (Sprinkles - Lily White Assortment) Doodlebug Designs Inc; (Marker - Light Purple) Neopiko

I used the arrows to create a background and I'm loving how this pigment ink stamps! Nice coverage. I also have been dying to try this Hey script die cut. I decided I like the little cut outs and colored them up and inlayed them back into the sentiment.


A few enamel dots to finish off the card. Easy, peasey CAS...

That's all I have for you. Make sure to go visit the other girls' creations. They are sure to inspire you. A few more details, leave a comment by January 15, and Bev will draw a winner to win this set and £5 gift certificate. So make sure to comment on everyone's blog :)
