Uniko Challenge #51 – Anything Goes, optional twist Love

Hey! 

Welcome to the January/February 2019 Uniko Challenge. 

This is our first challenge of 2019 and we’ve chosen a really simple theme to ease you back in – Anything Goes. But for those of you that are already into the swing of 2019 challenges and would like more to get your teeth into we’ve added the optional twist of LOVE.

We have the amazingly talented and super creative Trina P joining us as out Guest Designer for this challenge. I’m sure you all know of her and are just as impressed by her cards as we are, but it’s always worth a visit to her blog to check out what’s she’s been up to.

Guest Designer – Trina P

Too cute!

I decided to go with the ‘Anything Goes’ part of the challenge, I’m not quite in the Valentine’s frame of mind! Plus, I treated myself to some new crafty goodies and wanted to give them a whirl with the idea I had formed in my head…

One of the crafty products I bought was Nuvo Expanding Mousse. Wow, this stuff is fun! I tested out with the Pure Florals Chrysanthemum Stencil too & shared over on my Instagram stories.

For this card I have used it with the Scattered Polka Dot Stencil and this time I didn’t heat expand it. I love the flat shimmer finish it has just aired dried too. I bought the Mustard Seed colour and it is more like a vintage gold colour. I’ve used it on some Papertrey Ink Royal Velvet card stock.

I’ve paired it with Pure Florals Peony and a sentiment from Simply Said Blocks (back in stock next week). I wanted the stencil design to be seen, so I stamped and embossed the smaller Peony bloom onto vellum. I only have copper and gold embossing powders (ancient) and neither matched perfectly with the Nuvo Mousse, so I decided to go with more of a contrast and used the copper.

The layout of my card is based on this weeks Freshly Made Sketches layout seen HERE and below…
