Uniko Challenge #58 Spots & Stripes with Optional Twist to use a Stencil

Uniko Challenge #58 Spots & Stripes with Optional Twist to use a Stencil

Welcome to the March/April 2020 Uniko Challenge.

For this, our second challenge of the year we’re asking for spots and stripes on your cards and an optional twist of using a stencil.

This month we’re delighted to have Mac Mable as our Guest Designer. She is well known for her creative use of techniques and you’re going to love her interpretation of the theme.

Isn’t that just an awesome use of spots and stripes? If you get time please pop over to her blog and tell her how very impressed you are – HERE.

Today I opted for a clean & simple design with a rainbow of colours. I chose not to use a stencil this time but mixed up a few Uniko clear stamp sets to create my card.

I recently saw someone use some colourful striped and spotty designer paper and I wrote the idea down to have a go at recreating it with stamps. I used Background Builders Classics to stamp the stripes in a rainbow of Altenew ink colours. I then went in and used the Santa nose stamp from Jolly Santa to stamp the dots in-between, colouring them with a black fine liner to make them solid.

I ‘ve then combined the flower from Flower Power #5 with the leaves from Flower Power #6 and added the bee and sentiment from Bee Happy.

I love how colourful and cheerful this card turned out, it is more than ever needed at this time of uncertainty and worry around the world.

As usual the Uniko Brand Ambassadors have been creative and have inspiration for you too. Be sure to head on over to the Uniko blogspot blog HERE for links to their blogs & also the prize and link up for the challenge.

I hope that you find some creative time to join in on the fun & look forward to seeing you in the gallery.

Crafty Hugs,
