Eau Natural & a WINNER!


How did you enjoy yesterday's post from Design Team member Gayatri? I thoroughly enjoyed the change :) and I didn't even peek at the post before it went live! 

It's going to be a regular feature here on the blog to have different DT members posting a new project or technique throughout the month. I know they all have their own blogs and there are links to them in the sidebar but it's nice to have variety here on the blog. It also takes a some pressure off me not to have to post myself everyday! 

Anyway, I do have a card to share today...

I decided to go Eau Natural with my card using a fairly soft colour palette using a mix of grey and a couple of shades of brown & it seemed perfect to use Natures Treasures I

I used the current Crazy for CAS challenge sketch seen HERE and below for the layout of my card and decided to do make it a portrait card rather than landscape as I knew I wanted to use the long stem leaves from the set.

I've a few more layers to my card than I usually go for but I still think it's pretty CAS. Keeping the focal image & sentiment simple & colours to a minimum helped achieve this.

So that's all from me today, be sure to stop on by tomorrow for another NEW monthly feature here on the blog from the Design Team & me! It also involves you the Uniko Studio fans & customers and of course there is GOOD incentives involved too! 

Talking of prizes I totally forgot to announce the random winner of the July Blog Hop who wins Label Love: Thank you clear stamp set. BIG apologies for my tardiness.

And the winner is....
