Guest Designing for Uniko

Hi Everyone,

I am so honored to be guest designing for Uniko Stamps today for their 42nd challenge!
I am sure you all know Uniko stamps - a delightful Britisch stamp company with an even more delightful owner Beverly Brown. She single handedly runs the entire company while juggling two young twin boys. A true wonder woman!

But lets get back to the challenge - the theme is flowers - don't we all love them? And there is a pretty inspiration picture to go along with it:

Here is my card:

This is the inspiration picture:

I used the pretty Happy Succulents set to make this card. I stamped it in green and water colored it in. I also added some water color to the solid succulents to give them more dimension. As you can see, the sentiment  is from the same set. I mounted the strip onto foam tape and added an enamel dot.

You'll have almost the entire month to play along!

Oh this is fab! Love the green stamping - gives a great look. I do like the clean, simple design. Very you! Thanks so much for being our GD this month. Deborah, DT. xx

Oh boy, the green stamping makes this card so fresh and the colors pop. I don't know what put that idea into your head but I'd keep it, if I were you.

This is just so beautiful! Love the no outline effect you achieved by stamping in green and the contrast of the black sentiment stack is fabulous. Thanks for joining Uniko as Guest Designer.

You've picked the colours out from the photo wonderfully! I love the little strip of striped black & white too - great detail x

Gorgeous! I've only recently discovered Uniko, but they give such fabulous service and their stamps are really reasonably priced as well. Need to look them up again when I next am in purchasing mode! Xx

Sorry I'm late to the party here ... just catching up on things after my holiday. I'm LOVING your colouring of this succulents set Cornelia. Awesome, perfection and so cheery in those bold colours. Great to see you Guest Design for us at Uniko and what a treat for the team. x
