Uniko BA Inspiration and a Paper Players Sketch

I'm up on the Uniko blog with some BA Inspiration using the latest challenge at The Paper Players.
Here are a couple of cards I made.

I love a sketch, they are a great way to get inspired when your mojo is not quite working as it should!
For this I started by stamping the small outline rose and two of the leaflets from Pure Florals Rose, in Versamark and embossing with gold EP. Using some Candied Apple, Mowed Lawn, and Pealed Paint DI smooshed onto my craft mat, I water coloured before fussy cutting out. A little shadow was added using one of my Zig watercolour markers.

The central strip was stamped using a selection of Simply Said sentiments in Altenew Evening Gray on a strip of paper, before adding to an A6 base card. A piece of textured white card from my stash was mounted onto some gold card and the Floral Vines sentiment stamped and embossed with the same gold EP. The rose spray was then added to the top panel and attached over the central strip.

My second card uses the poinsettia from Season of Beauty, Christmas Sentiments and the Winter Foliage stencil.

Details of this card are over on the Uniko blog.

  2. Beautiful cards using this fabulous sketch Jules! xx

  3. Two gorgeous cards! The rose and poinsettia images are both beautiful images. The gold embossing adds a touch of elegance, which I absolutely love. Thank you for playing with The Paper Players this week!

  5. Julie, these are gorgeous cards! I love the red rose and the way you used our sketch! The gold embossing is lovely, too! So happy you joined us at The Paper Players this week!

  6. Great cards, I love the idea of using the sentiments as a background. It works a treat xx

  7. What a lovely pair of cards, Jules and two great takes on the sketch. I love a good sketch too and it's great when you can make the same design for two separate occasions.
    Hope you are well,
