Evening everyone, hope you're all keeping well and warm. I was a very lucky girl and won Miss Di's super prize over at the Playground on Sunday and when this fabulous stamp set fell through the letterbox yesterday I had to set to and have a play with them. (Thank you again Di)
This is my very first set of Uniko stamps (called Gerbera) and it was really lovely to ink up and colour them with my usual Promarkers. I stamped straight onto the card blank and then again onto another smaller piece of card. To do this and get the stamps to line up I first stamped the base, then I put a cello bag over it and placed the smaller card where I wanted it to go on top, then lined up with the first image and stamped again - I used a cello bag as that was the nearest clear thing to hand but vellum or acetate would do as well. After colouring the image I matted it onto silver mirri-card and then stuck it to the base card, being careful to line up the flowers. The sentiment is a Clearly Besotted stamp which I also matted onto a bit of mirri-card. Looking at the card now I think it may need a couple of pearls added to finish it off.
I shall enter this in the following challenges ~
