Uniko's Stencil Release Day & GIVEAWAY!

Good morning it's release day over at Uniko. 
Here a few more ideas using the November release stencils.

First off the block is the MOD background Builders.
For this example I've used some more purchases from Ruthin, some WOW foil and WOW Bonding powder.

Don't you just love the sheen, well until you try to take a pic that is, then it's an absolute nightmare!!

The bonding powder is so easy to use, inking through the main part of the stencil with Versamark on black, the bonding powder is added and heated, as with EP, before adding the foil and running through any old laminator. I did try to make a pattern with a mix of rose and plain gold foil, cutting small pieces of the rose gold and then overlaying a larger piece of gold, then running it through a laminator in a piece of A4 copy paper folded as a carrier. You can see where one of the small pieces shifted 'twixt desk and laminator but it still looks so pretty!! The sentiment was done the same except it was first stamped with Versamark. I only bought a couple of colours of foil so may have to hunt out a few more, it is addictive.

My second card uses the Flower Power stencil, concentrating this time on just the leaf elements

After masking off the solid leaves a random selection of leaves were inked with a light covering of Spiced Marmalade, Festive Berries and Vintage Photo DI before inking again with the detail leaf stencil and the same colours. Gaps were filled with dots from the large detail leaf stencil. Another of my Doodle Flower sentiments complete.

My next card uses Large Snowflake #1 and the Large Snowflake die.

Using the Large Snowflake #1 stencil over navy card, I spread white embossing paste and left to dry. I found this silver die cut snowflake in the stash and thought it a great way to amp up the design. I simply added it over the embossed snowflake, followed by a sentiment from Christmas Sentiments on matching navy card.
Finally here's a card using the other Large Snowflake stencil #2.

Simply inked in Altenew's Aqualicious ink over pale turquoise card, then again slightly off with Unicorn pigment ink to create the shadow. A few sequins from the stash and a sentiment from Simply Said Blocks Christmas complete

That's all from me but the rest of the team have come up with some fantastic ways to use these fab new stencils, so why not check them out on their own blogs.
