I’m here today along with our Guest Designer and Design Team to remind you about the May/June 2019 Uniko challenge.
How fun & quirky is this masculine card? Be sure to head on over to Radhika’s blog & leave some love
I made time for some creativity yesterday in the studio It’s been a hectic month with so much going on and to keep up with, that I feel I’ve missed making cards for the fun of it.
Anyway, this is one of the cards I made…
With Father’s Day fast approaching I thought I had better make another card! Explosion! Additions is an awesome clear stamp set for making masculine cards. The fun halftone explosions look FAB stamped in bright colours & I’ve accented the large ones with some smaller explosions stamped in shades of Grey.
I used Catherine Pooler inks for the large halftone explosions in Suede Shoes, Rockin’ Red & Limoncello, such clean, bright & crisp stamped images. Plus I didn’t even use my MISTI, these came out perfect using an acrylic block. I used Altenew Gentleman’s Grey collection for the smaller explosions.
The die cut DAD was an ‘ah ha’ idea I had using the MFT Happy Birthday die I bought at Happy Stampers Festival. Though I’ve not used it as ‘happy birthday’ on a card yet, I was thinking what other words I could make from it and this was one of the results – haha!
I’ve layered the white die cut letters which I have partially stamped with the Background Block Halftone, with some black die cut letters to make them stand out a little better from the background.
