Introducing Alphabet Outlined and Background Blocks Arts Decoratifs

Good morning.
It's day 1 of the February release at Uniko.
My first card uses the Alphabet Outlined set. Big and bold outlined letters and numerals. Here I've gone with the numerals to make a masculine card, but change the colour way and it could be made feminine or even by changing the sentiment you could turn it into an anniversary card.

The outlined numerals were stamped in grey on a white base card before the 40 was coloured with Copics and the sentiment from Wonderful Day stamped in black.

My second card just uses a snippet of a larger panel made by adding dark grey, turquoise, and blue alcohol inks to a panel of Yupo paper and smooshed around with an air puffer and a blender. When dry, the panel was stamped with the BB Arts Decoratif a couple of times in Versamark and heat embossed with gold EP.

The main part of the panel will come up later but this snippet was added to the base card and then to match the embossing on the panel, I inked the edge of two strips of white card with Versamark then heat embossed with gold EP. On the smaller white panel, the sentiment was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with sparkly black EP.
Assembling the card, the gold strips were attached to each white panel and then added to the base card. I think this would work well as a card for a man, as the colours are quite dark and masculine.

For more fab inspiration using these two new stamp sets, check out the rest of the BAs and Bev.
