Uniko Studio May 2018 Release In Review Week~Just Because & Large Background French Script

Hello,

Guess what was waiting for me upon our return from our vacation/bike racing events? The brand-spanking new Uniko Studio May 2018 Release!  You've seen the amazing stamps, stencils and dies in action - gorgeous action, I might add -  during the introduction week, but just in case you need an 'extra' nudge to add a few of these gems to your collection, a few of us from the Design Team will be participating in a Release in Review week.  I'm excited to finally have a chance to play with my new goodies!

Today, we're featuring the oh-so-pretty Just Because and Large Background French Script stamps.
  

Initially, I planned to pair the sets to create one card, but decided, nope...they deserve 'solo' performances (with a snippet of help from an older Simply Said sentiment).  A rainbow(ish) palette on both, created with three distress inks: Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed and Mermaid Lagoon. 

The card below sees the Just Because flower inked, then spritzed to blend the colours. The font of the 'because'...swoon!

NOTE: Honoured to be selected for Outstanding Design recognition at CAS May Watercolour Card Challenges. THANK YOU!

Here, the inks were blended, die cut and stamped with the delicately lined French Script...


Easy to recreate, especially when lovely stamps do all the work!

See you tomorrow for another round of showcases! For more inspiration using these sets, head over to Rahmat's place; she has some beauties!

Fabulous cards Carol.Love the watercolour effect on the first one and the pretty background of colour on the script one. We are having our summer early here in the UK at the moment...I am not complaining but fear once it rains then that will be the end of it till next year! Hugs xx

Welcome home, Carol! Wow! These are so pretty! I adore the watercolor effect you achieved on the first card. It's fabulous and that sentiment is so sweet. The rainbow in the second card is beautiful. Love the simplicity of the designs that create quite the impact. Wonderful work! Thanks for sharing. Hugs!

Your rainbow flowers are absolutely gorgeous, Carol! I wish we could get the Uniko products in the US. Actually it's probably better for my pocketbook that we can't! Thanks for sharing your beautiful cards with us at CAS Watercolour!

That flower is marvelous inked in rainbow colors, Carol, and you had such a soft hand with the inking on the other card.
