Be Mine Always - Uniko Studio Sketch Challenge


Good morning!  
It's time for a new challenge at Uniko Studio!  This month, Gayatri created a fabulous sketch to inspire us!  Head on over to the Uniko Studio Blog to see what the other talented designers whipped up for today!  While you're there, check out all of the challenge details and play along with us!


I went to town with the combinations of some of my favorite Uniko Studio stamp sets!  Each set pictured below had the PERFECT image or sentiment to create a subtle backsplash for my Valentine card!  




I was also inspired by the ColourQ Challenge #224 and Friday Mashup #143!


I stamped (collage-style) several hearts, arrows, and sentiments from Uniko Studio using some pretty distress inks on a piece of white cardstock, then placed a vellum overlay and secured with some stitching.  The "Always" sentiment was stamped over the vellum and then again onto an aqua heart die cut...the heart propped up over a nest of thread.  Lastly, a few Pretty Pink Posh Silver Heart Confetti sequins were scattered about to create some movement! 


Hope you'll have a chance to play along at Uniko Studio Blog with the sketch challenge this month!  You have until February 14th and a chance to win some Uniko Studio of your own.
 Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!
