Uniko Studio – June Challenge: Anything Goes – Reminder

   Hi! Today I’m back as a Guest Designer with a reminder post to encourage you to play along over at Uniko Studio’s June Challenge!

IMG_5894editedThis month’s challenge is Anything Goes- with the optional twist of a masculine card. I did some masking and ink blending to make this, a masculine one layer card.

IMG_5895editedI used a couple of Uniko’s super and free digi stamps to make this card. I made two other similar cards as well.

I also made a couple of feminine cards for this reminder too! I used Uniko’s English Country Garden – Butterflies. Uniko’s new website is looking really cool. You should go check it out!

IMG_6711editedFor both of my butterfly cards I heat embossed onto SU! vellum with clear embossing powder. I’m going to play this over at SSS Wednesday’s: Anything Goes.

Here is my second butterfly card.

I used the photo below as inspiration for my purple card.

I used a watercolor smooshing technique for both of these cards and then used my heat tool to dry the vellum. This was a bit tricky, but if you are careful you can straighten the vellum out, not re-melt the embossing powder and get a nice result!

And just when I thought I was finished with this Guest Designer post…….

look what was in my mailbox last night! Royal Mail! 🙂

So, you know I had to make a quick card this morning and add it to this post. The stamp set was just screaming, “Masculine card awaiting!”

So here it is.

IMG_6837editedI stamped in VersaMark, heat embossed in black, sponged on SU! Pacific Point, added the white gel pen outlines and the PTI “Thanks” sentiment. IMG_6836editedI look forward to much more  stamping fun with this set!

Thank you, Bev, for the opportunity to Guest Design for this challenge!

Thanks for stopping by!
