Introducing Uniko's Background Blocks Graffitti

Morning peeps.
Back again with day 3 of the February Uniko release introductions.
Today we are focusing on one of the background blocks - Graphitti!

For this example, I inked a panel with Blueprint Sketch DOx and then stamped the graffitti image with plain water to create the pattern. The water acts like bleach, removing some of the ink which you can mop up with a piece of kitchen paper. I also splashed a few drops of water over the panel to remove even more of the ink.
My top panel was cut using a double sided curved die and the panel trimmed down to size. A scrap of bright yellow card was also cut and then slipped behind the white panel to create added interest. My sentiment, from Wonderful Day was stamped in navy ink and embossed with clear semi dull EP and the white panels popped up over the distressed blue one, trimmed to size and added to a white base card.
For more fab inspiration, check out the rest of the team.
