Uniko Studio Revisited Blog Hop - Chrysanthemums

Friday, July 11, 2014

I apologize for my post being late. But hey, I'm here now, right?! ;)

Welcome to your next stop on the Uniko Studio Revisited Blog Hop! This month, we are revisiting Pure Florals: Chrysanthemum clear stamp set and matching Designer Dies.

Here's my creation! The large Chrysanthemum was heat embossed with white EP on watercolor paper. Using a Ranger Distress Ink pad, a Distress Marker, a craft sheet, some water, and a watercolor brush, I got the effect below. Very easy and I think it came out nice. It was then die-cut.

The card base was stamped with a stamp from the Natures Treasures I set. A full layer of vellum was adhered to the card base, making the background very subtle and soft. The sentiment was stamped directly on the vellum. The flower was adhered using foam tape, and one corner punched with the corner rounder ;)

Be sure to hop along and simply comment on each blog for the chance to win the featured set PLUS the coordinating Designer Dies Collection or a Gift Certificate to the same value if you already own them. You have until Midnight Wednesday, July 16th to comment and the winner will be announced on the Uniko Studio blog on Thursday, July 17th.
