Morning all. I'm here to announce the start of a brand new challenge over at Uniko with this card.
I've used the scattered polka dots stencil and the colours from the challenge, together with the celebrate greeting from the new release Birthday Sentiments.
To start I took a panel of white card and using DIs, Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Mowed Lawn and Salty Ocean inked through the stencil, masking as I went with Post Its.
From my stash I selected sequins that were roughly the same colour and scattered them amongst the dots. A small diamante gem makes it extra sparkly, a tip I found on Jennifer McGuire's blog. The celebrate was heat embossed with silver EP to match. The completed panel was then mounted up on pads on a white base card.
The sequins and gems remind me of sewing sequins onto my daughter's dance costumes many years ago. I found out the hard way that you can't just sew a strip of them onto a Lycra costume or they will ping off or not allow the Lycra to do it's thing. A small bugle bead is the best thing to anchor a sequin on a previously stretched outfit.
Anyway that is way back in the past but the latest challenge is fresh and awaiting your involvement!
