I have been looking forward to sharing these two fab new Uniko stencils with you - I had lots of fun playing with them! They will be available as part of the new release on Wednesday 28 February.
Firstly here are a few of the cards that I made with Seeing Stars:
I used Imagination Crafts sparkle paste through the stencil to create a variegated effect and popped a Birthday sentiment over the top.
On this card I used the frame left from the die cut panel on the first card and added a few of my mdf stars . The sentiment is from Uniko's birthday sentiment set again - it so versatile :)
This background is created using a gelli plate - it is a second or third pull so the stars are quite soft. I added some further stars using distress oxides and inked around the edge of the panel. The sentiment and string of stars are from the Reach for the Stars stamp set.
I will link this gelli print card up at Simon's Monday Challenge where the task is to grunge it up.
Here are a couple of cards that I made with the chrysanthemum:
I used some Tonic Nuvo embellishment mousse through the beautiful stencil. It is a large floral image and creates a great focal point. The sentiment from Birthday sentiments is embossed in gold.
Finally, I used pixie powders and colour bursts on a piece of watercolour card to create the background before using white embossing paste with the stencil over the top. I spattered gold and black paint over the top. The sentiment is from the Pure Florals Daffodil set.
I shall link this card up at Simon's Wednesday Challenge to create your own background.
I hope you are still with me after all of these pictures! I found it hard to put these stencils down :)
The rest of the DT have fab ideas to share with you over on the Uniko blog and there are more introducing posts to share over the next few days before the release blog hop on Wednesday.
