[Uniko Studio Challenge] No. 15 - Texture

Hello Uniko Fans - we are back with a new challenge.

We ALL loved seeing your entries we had for our last challenge & we look forward to seeing your entries for this one :) To help get your mojo flowing & increase the number of entries I have 'bumped' up the prizes.

The Prizes:
  • A £20 Gift Certificate to the Winner & Guest Design Team spot on the blog for the next challenge
  • Top Three Spotlight & £5 Gift Certificate 

Guest Designers are still welcome to join in on the current challenge too :) 

For the Challenge this month we are back to a 'theme' and colour pallet:



YAY! I finally found a spare few minutes while the beans were sleeping in their pram to create a card for today's challenge. 

The theme of 'Texture' maybe a daunting theme to you like it was me, but there are lots of ways to add texture to your creations. For example it could be embossing, be it with an embossing folder or heat embossing, or you might be into the current trend of embossing paste with a stencil. It could be that you add texture to your card in a 'faux' way by using a texture stamp or using designer paper that has a texture to it. The possibilities are endless!

Anyway, this is how I interpreted the challenge...

Amazingly I have used all the colours from the pallet and my interpretation of the texture theme was to use a textured card base. For the layout of my card I have used the current Freshly Made Sketches layout seen HERE and below.

Stamps wise I have used a combination of Background Builders: Vines and All Occasion Sentiments #3. Below is a close up of the detail...

Let's see how the Design Team faired with this challenge...
