Uniko June Challenge

Hi All

It is time for our June Challenge at Uniko Studio and this month our theme is:

Anything Goes with the optional twist of a masculine card.

I went for the twist as this card is for one special man in my life. I made a card using my favourite Uniko stamp Paradise Humming Bird. You have seen me use this many times but there are still many different ways I could use this.


I started here by embossing the stamp and then used the water colour masking fluid on the stamp so I could create a sky water colour look around the image. This took a while to dry. I then water coloured the bird in yellow. This was left over night to flatten under boxes.

For this challenge we are joined by 2 amazing Guest Designers, Anita and Melissa. Both are so very creative and I would take some time out to visit their blogs.

Anita, Melissa and the DT have all made some amazing cards to inspire us-you can check them out here. Where you will also see all the ways you can win Uniko goodies!
