It's another of those posts that I find hard to write and put all my feelings into. It is with sadness that we at Uniko are saying farewell to our longest standing Design Team member Nicki Scheck from Creativity Lives Here.
Nicki has been a member of the Uniko DT since October 2012! For nearly 4 years I have had the honour and pleasure of having Nicki as part of the Uniko family. Seeing the inspiration and creativity flow when Nicki works her magic with Uniko products is simply amazing. Plus I have been able to see her beautiful twin boys grow, giving me confidence, support and courage that 'life' is possible with twins!
A HUGE thank you will never be enough to resonate my gratitude for all that Nicki has done for me and Uniko, she has truly been an inspiration to me and I am sure to all the Uniko customers old and new alike.
So, I couldn't let Nicki leave without giving her a little farewell send off and making a card. I love Nicki's card making style, stylish, colourful and CAS. Her eye for design and composition is impeccable and I especially love how Nicki combines florals and geometrics with ease. So with that in mind this is the card I came up with...
When I saw the current CAS(E) this Sketch! layout seen HERE and below, I immediately thought of a combination of geometrics and florals - a perfect 'Nicki' card so I gave it ago.
I also gave my ink blending a little more practice, Nicki's use of colour and blending colours is always flawless and inspiring, I hope I have done it justice for Nicki. I kept the bloom from Beautiful Blooms II (back in stock soon) black and white in contrast to the colourful panel. I did add a little Wink Of Stella to the white parts of the bloom and leaves for an added oomph!
That's all from me, but before I go, I thought I would leave you with a few of my favourite Nicki creations...
What an amazing snippet of Nicki's talent and inspiration using Uniko, don't you think?
THANK YOU Nicki for everything! You had been a blessing to Uniko and you WILL be truly missed by us all.
