Friday 15th December - Introducing... Pure Florals Rose


We're back with Day 4 of sneak peeks for Uniko December 2017 New Release.  Today's set is absolutely, totally and completely WOW (as are all the others!):  Pure Florals: Rose. Filled with solid and outline roses and buds, in two sizes, outlined leaves and stem, and several 'painted' sentiments: this is a set for everyone, regardless of your stamping/colouring/creating style.  

To be honest, the beauty of this set overwhelmed me and I spent far too much time 'thinking' about how to do it justice that...well, I wound up kind of lost (I'll blame that on all the Christmas cards/projects I've been doing of late...hard to shift gears)! Eventually (and in a bit of panic as time was a ticking), I defaulted to my typical  style: CAS.  

Yes, a single rose is enough to express love - and that's what I banked on in putting together a solitary rose, inked in three colours (a dab here; a dab there), with sparkles of Nuvo "dew' drops, which I left to stand as the star of the stage....

The rest of the team have created outstanding cards with this set...and I'm hoping to do so as well - very soon (fingers crossed)! I just need to get over being 'bedazzled'!

Tomorrow is the BIG REVEAL! Hope you'll have a chance to visit and maybe, just maybe, add a couple (or several) of these new delights to your Christmas gift list!

Thank you for dropping by!

    Leaving the leaves uncolored
    was a good idea.
