Guesting over at ATSM!

 Good evening. It's just like old times posting at this time but I'm only the GD over at ATSM for their latest challenge. Here's my card.

This card has been made using the Uniko Wonky Stripes stencil and some stamped, coloured and die cut foliage and flowers from the Uniko's Originally Organic Additions, stamps and matching dies.
It's part of a group of cards that will be making an appearance a little later on today!
Using a selection of DIs, I inked through the stencil onto a panel of white card, blending them into a rainbow then put to one side.
From some scrap white card, I cut the flowers and leaves before stamping the outlines and colouring with Copic markers. I use a homemade die cut jig to place the cut elements into so that I can rapidly stamp the small elements with my MISTI.
I'm really trying to use up all my odds and ends of card this year to eek out my dwindling supplies. I'm hoping to get out and replenish my white cardstock very soon but it's been needs must during lockdown! So I looked through my stash and selected some off cuts of linen effect card and created two panels. 
I cut my A6 stenciled panel in half and glued it to a scrap of white copy paper from which I had cut 1cm from one long and one short side. This allows a border to show around my finished panel. The two panels of linen effect card were a little too narrow for my taste, so I added a couple of strips of gold mirror card to each side and glued them all down, trimming away excess. 
The leaf sprigs and flowers were arranged over the stenciled panel, a black and gold sentiment strip added and the finished panel popped up over a linen effect A6 top fold card on pads.
For more inspiration from the ATSM team please check out the ATSM blog.
So that's all from me for the moment but please pop back in a few hours for some more Uniko inspiration!
