Introducing... Mid Century Modern Birthday

Good morning and welcome to day 2 of the new Uniko release introductions. 
Today we are focusing on Mid Century Modern Birthday. Here's my take.

The set comprises of a large sentiment, smaller MCM additions and a few of present stamps along with ribbon and bows. The pressies on the release logo are how Bev imagined them, but I went slightly off piste with my watercolour take.

Using my Misti, I stamped the solid pressies first with plain water then again with DI onto MM paper. The ink spreads into the water to give a watercolour look without the hassle! To make the top middle pressie, I used the solid square from BB Squares. When the ink was dry, I added some pattern with a white gel pen and some doodled strings with a black fine liner. I liked the clean look so did not add any sentiment.

Here's a second card using the parcels again but this time simply stamped using DI and the ribbons similarly before fussy cutting each element out.

Just to show how well it combines with other sets I've used the sentiment from Birthday sentiments instead of the one from the set. A few embossed stars and a few sequins complete.

So that's it from me, but why not check out the rest of the team for their takes.

I'll be back tomorrow with anther introduction from the new 12th Birthday Release from Uniko.
