Hello … bonjour! It’s not often I post on consecutive days … but I am today as I’m delighted to be Guest Designing with the DT over at Uniko for this month’s delicious challenge … how exciting … thanks so much, Bev, for the invitation! We have a fabulous photo to inspire you this time round … it’s a little further down … here’s where I went with it …
I picked out the scrumptious colour palette and the white detailing for my card … and started by heat embossing the Uniko butterfly off the edge of a panel of Ranger watercolour card. The butterfly was coloured with Zigs … I added the colour just to the inside edges of the embossing and used a waterbrush to pull it out and blend it across the wings. There’s a soft blue halo of watercolour wash around the butterfly … and some delicate splatters because the butterfly is disturbing the air as it flutters! The Uniko ‘celebrate’ was stamped in grey (to maintain the soft look), the supplementary sentiment is from Winnie & Walter and I added some Ranger Enamel Accents to finish off.
How would you like to play along with us? There’s so much to see in this photo … colours, white accenting, circles, florals, hearts, doodling … I even spotted a snowflake! Why not let your imagination roam and see what it comes up with … we’d love to see you in the gallery! All the details are over at the Uniko blog, together with all kinds of delicious inspiration from the wonderfully talented Design Team … do go and take a look … and enjoy!
My butterfly is also fluttering off to …
