Uniko challenge, reminder

 Good morning folks, time to remind you that there is still time to join in over at Uniko for our Anything Goes, optional twist of dies, challenge. Here's my take using a few Uniko Goodies.

I took inspiration from a card I made at the start of my time at Uniko here,  I love the contrast of the black oval with the white embossed sentiment with the soft hint of green in the stencilling. I think it has a definite air of sunny days, just like we had for the Bank Holiday when I made it, and how unusual is that here in the UK?
For this take, I started by stencilling over the front of my white base card with Twisted Citron DI with the Mid Century Modern Squares stencil, letting the colour fade out towards the edges. Then, on a die cut black oval, I stamped and embossed with white EP, the fab sentiment from Birthday Wishes. The die cut elements come from Originally Organic Additions stamps and dies and I used the mirror stamping technique to get the foliage element to face the opposite way, just like my original card. I tend to die cut the shapes then use a homemade jig in my MISTI to stamp them before colouring with Copics.
Arranging the blooms into a pleasing form I added them to my black oval and the adhered it all over the stencilling.
So for more fab inspiration from the rest of the team and our GD Elaine, Please check out the Uniko blog here. You'll also find all the Ts and Cs there too.
Happy crafting!
