Guest Designer for Uniko Challenge #48


Hello there!  Today I am excited to be guest designing for Uniko Challenge #48!   It is a quote inspiration challenge.



I created a friendship card around sentiments in Uniko’s Reach for the Stars stamp set.



I almost created a galaxy background, but in keeping with the remainder of the sentiment, which was stamped on the inside, I kept it more subtle.



First I took a scrap piece of mixed media paper and white heat embossed the streaming stars.  Using a mini blending tool, blended Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Faded Jeans distress inks to create the sky.  I wanted to twist and cute critters and children go hand in hand, don’t they? 😉  So the hugging monkeys was stamped on X-press It paper with Memento black ink, coloured with Copics then die cut out with the matching die.



Next a stitched rectangle panel was die cut from regular white cardstock.  A circle window was then die cut from it and the sentiment black heat embossed above.  Adhered the sky piece flat on to a white top folding card base.  Attached the monkeys behind the circle opening then mounted the panel to the front with foam tape to finish.




Ready to join the challenge?  You can see all the inspirations from the talented design team HERE.  Hope to see your fabulous take on this challenge.  Thank you for visiting.  Enjoy your day!
