Uniko Challenge Reminder #53 – Anything Goes + Optional Twist Masculine

Hey!

I’m here today along with our Guest Designer and Design Team to remind you about the May/June 2019 Uniko challenge.

We have an Anything Goes theme at the moment, but with Father’s Day here in the UK coming up in June we’ve also added in the optional twist of Masculine just in case.

Challenge Guidelines:

* You can use any products/stamps to enter the challenge, but we do LOVE to see you use your Uniko products. Plus, there is an extra chance to win a prize if you do 😉
* Email entries welcome, just email a photo of your card to bev@uniko.co.uk and I will add it to the Uniko Flickr gallery and link up!
* Share the challenge graphic in your post and link back to the challenge if possible 😉
We have Radhika joining us again as our Guest Designer. She has created another fabulous masculine card to inspire you.

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!

USC#532b

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.
