I was extremely lucky to recently receive some new stamps from Bev (the owner of Uniko) and wanted to pair one of those with some of the very first Uniko stamp sets I ever purchased:
I was dying to try out this Uniko 'Scattered Polka Hearts' background stamp, so grabbed my MISTI and stamped in Waffle Flower 'Safe Choice'. I thought it looked a bit plain so decided to stamp it again but slightly over and down with Waffle Flower 'My Pleasure' and love how it turned out!!
I stamped the flowers (from Uniko 'Flower Power #5) with the same dark coral colour and the leaves with Waffle Flower 'Chirp Chirp!'. I fussy cut them out, put the flowers on foam tape and the leaves were glued to the card front. I stamped the sentiment (from Uniko 'Flower Power #3) on a strip of white CS and put that on foam tape too, along with sequins from Neat and Tangled. I also added some shimmer to the middle of the flowers with my Wink of Stella but must have gotten carried away as its made the ink bleed, which is so annoying because now that's all I can see!!
I'm also going to link this to the Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge where their theme is 'Make your own Background'.
Right, I better get this card linked to the challenge before I run out of time. Phoebe had some friends stay over last night for her birthday and I can hear them tucking into chocolate cake for breakfast. Sounds like a good idea actually, might have to join them.......
