Uniko New Release day 1

Well after all those sneaky peeks are you ready for the Uniko February release full reveal?
My card focuses on the stencil, Balloon Bash and Birthday Sentiments.


To start, I took a panel of white card and inked the yellow balloon with Mustard Seed DI, masking out the rest of the stencil and card to avoid any ink in the wrong place! Repeating the process, I moved left using Carved Pumpkin and Candied Apple DI and right using Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean and Wilted Violet DI, changing the balloon shape as I went.
When dry, I added some strings with a black fineliner, there is a straight line stencil for those of you who are not so steady, then cut out the celebrate with a word die (make sure not to loose any tiny bits!). Under the celebrate aperture I stamped the 'YOUR BIRTHDAY' from the Birthday Sentiments set with Memento Tuxedo Black. To finish I cut another celebrate from fun foam removing all the little bits and carefully glued this to the back of the first. On the back of my inked panel. I added some double sided tape across the opening then replaced the celebrate and all the tiny coloured bits. The completed panel was mounted onto a plain white A6 base card.

 Has that whetted your appetite, if so there's more to come from me and the rest of the team over the next few days.
The release schedule can be found over on the Uniko blog HERE as well as links and peeks at how my fellow teamies have worked their magic!

Thanks for stopping by, hope to see you back for more release inspiration soon.
