Uniko Guest Designer

I am Thrilled to be the guest designer for Uniko, after my win last month with this card.
The challenge this time is to use Spots and Stripes.....
With an optional twist of using a stencil (s)

This is my card

After masking my card I blended a couple of hot pink inks.
More masking and lots of stamping, with the help of the trusted Misti.
I used all Uniko stamps but you can use any stamps to enter...
I used five different stamp sets, which I enjoyed combining together.
I heat embossed some of the butterfly with silver and used silver foiling for the leaves.
I used 'blue' glue for the spots on the leaves and whilst I was rubbing the silver foil over it 
I noticed that my nails had left silver foil stripes too....Win Win for the challenge! x.

Thank you Bev, Jane and the fabulous design team for choosing my card
and for the honour of guesting with you x.
I hope everyone is staying safe.......

Splats and Embossing

Thinking of you all and Stay Safe x

Here is Today's card.....

CAS Mix Up Challenge this month is Acrylic Paints and CAS Stencil is Heat Embossing...
My choice for CAS Mix Up is die cutting.

I tried the fun acrylic pouring technique.........
The piece I did was not good, but once I die cut the splat from it I thought I could use it.

I used 3D Clear gel through the stencil and silver embossing powder 
and before it dried heat embossed it, which left a grungy, bubbly and dimensional effect.
I left in one piece of the fall out from the leaf shape die and popped on more embossing powders 
and heat set for a really textural effect.
Finishing off with more random heat embossing and stamping the text vertically.
I had fun with the acrylic pouring and heat embossing with a stencil.

Happy 4th Birthday to the wonderful team over at The CAS Mix Up 
and thank you for all your fabulous inspiration and fun challenges.
