Happy, Happy!

Hello Everyone! Back again - this time to share a card I have made for a really lovely friend's birthday!

I have used the sketch for this month's challenge at CLP Challenges. They always have such lovely sketches to follow. I have used MME Sunny Side papers, with Fleur Anya again. She has been coloured with Distress Markers (Loving them!!)

Here is a picture of the detail on the card. The pearly swirl is from Creative Expressions, the flowers have been cut with a Marianne die, and the centres embellished with Prima Crystals. I have edged the leaves with a touch of Copic to give them a bit of definition.

Hope you like it! Thanks for visiting! I will be back soon with the latest from Uniko Studio! Kx

Unikly Shabby!

You see! I said I would be back! Lol!

This card was again made for challenges, and then realised that I had missed them both! Can you have a mid - year resolution? If so mine would be to make cards and post them for challenges on time!

I have used the Uniko Studio Decorative Doilies, stamped and then embossed in white so that I could rub ink all over them. The papers are a digital download from Uniko Studio too - love these papers, but it was easier to cut into them knowing I could get some more!! I've smooshed antique linen distress ink into the papers to age them a little.

There are lots of layers on this card, and I've added more embellishment with the pearl pen. The rose and butterfly were added to add a bit more interest.

Thanks for looking!

Distressed Fleur!

Hello Everyone! Hope you are all ok.

Well - I hoped that there were some small spots of sunshine heading our way - but no! Still, has given me some much needed time to have a play. I have done a bit of shopping, so there was plenty of new things to keep me busy!
I made this card that I made for a challenge - but successfully forgot that I couldn't post it before the birthday! I don't know - I do that so often! Lol! The gorgeous seam binding has been stained with copic refill ink to blend with the colours of the paper.
The gorgeous character is Fleur Anya, from The Greeting Farm. I got her from The Stamp Attic. They have lots of colouring room! Talking of the colouring, she has been coloured in Distress colours using the gorgeous markers. I love them - so portable and lovely to colour with - yet again I have failed miserably to write the colours used down. I must do better!! You can see the detail on this picture with touches of sparkle!

The lovely washed out colours of the Distress Markers are perfectly suited to the papers. They are from Pink Paislee, and I love them. The teeny tag is from Whiff of Joy, and the dinky sentiment from Papertrey Ink.
Right, well I will be back later. I have got two more cards to post later on - both are missed challenges too!! Lol! No surprises there then!! Thanks for your lovely comments too - let me know if you would like me to share the colours I use - I will buy a notebook specially to write them in so I remember!! LMAO!

Flourishes and Fontiments

Hello everyone!

Happy Bank Holiday if you are in the UK! If you are not, hope you are having a lovely day! Just a quick post to show you a card made with the latest Uniko Studio stamps! I have made this for my Dad's birthday.

The colours are very similar to the post here. I am loving the papers that have come with this release - so you might see a bit more of these! The colours are really lovely - just my cup of tea! Lol! I have used the Fontiments Birthday set, and the lovely Fontiment flourishes as the main focus of my card, rather than an image. 

The border punch is an EK Success one, which I love! Pearl drops on the border and the flourish have been added with pearl pen. The matting cardstock is by Stampin Up! I have made the flourish 'pop' a little by lining areas with Copic N1 Sketch. This just gives a little dimension.

So, have a lovely rest of the day - shame there is no sunshine really, but hey ho, its good for a cuppa and a good film! I'm going out with my dogs for a walk before it rains. Again!
