Uniko Studio New Release Blog Hop

Yay!  Release day is finally here!  There have been some amazing creations from the design team this month.  WOW!  This card was really fun to make.  I used a watercolor technique to create the pink and purple background paper.  To do this I started by adding a few drops of pink ink to a cd case and then spritzed it was water.  Then I used a foam brush and drug (dragged?) it across the paper diagonally.  I did the same thing again with the purple ink.  I attached that layer to a white card base.  Next I cut the white layer to 4.25x5.5 and die-cut my negative flowers with the new Graphic Flower Dies.  This die set contains 3 sizes of this flower, so I die-cut the smaller ones, embossed them with an embossing folder and adhered them in the center of the negative cuts.  I topped them off with SEI silver glitter dots.  I stamped the "friend" sentiment from the new All Occasion Sentiments #3 set, and on top of that a "Thank You" sentiment from Label Love Thank You.
