Uniko's 10th Birthday Bash

Today is a BIG day for all you Uniko fans. We are celebrating 10 years since Bev launched the Uniko brand. A lot has happened to all of us in the intervening years, designers have come and gone but there are still some fabulous stamp sets, dies and stencils in Uniko's catalogue. So to celebrate, we are having a fun party for the whole of February with lots of fun activities for you to participate in.

Here's my card to get the ball rolling, celebrating 10 sensational years of Uniko design.

I always think that balloons are a great way to celebrate, so I dug out my Balloon Bash Stencil and got inky! After adding my balloons using the three different outlines on the stencil using DIs, I added some extra pzazz with a sprinkling of water to add the pattern. The water was removed carefully with a clean piece of kitchen paper and then left to dry. When dry I added the strings freehand with a black fine liner and pencil for the bit of the string behind the orange balloon, to an A6 base card.
For the sentiment I wanted to celebrate Bev's 10 years, so I dug out the first set I ever bought from Uniko called Classic Numbers, now retired and the relatively new Floral Vines set. On a strip of black card, I stamped the 10 and sentiment in Versamark and embossed with white EP. The Happy Birthday from Floral Vines was added in black ink and the sentiment strip added below on pads. The finished panel was then added to my base card with pads.

So, as part of our 10 year celebrations there will be ten quests for you to complete. Each quest will give you the opportunity to win.
