Birthday Blooms

Hey & Happy Monday!

I do hope your week has got off to a good start? Things here at Uniko Studio HQ seem to have started well & I'm back (not quite on schedule) with another card to share - YAY!

I was inspired by Taheerah's Cure For The Monday Blues Challenge photo seen HERE and below. As you can see the stripes, flowers & sequins in the photo was what jumped out at me most.

I started out by trimming a piece of white CS 9.5 x 13 cm, I then temporarily adhere the panel to my SU! grid paper stack. I then lined my solid stripe stamp from Background Builders: Squared onto an acrylic block with grid lines on it. I then stamped said stripe in black ink using the grid paper & block to stamp it evenly spaced on the panel. I always start with the lowest line and work upwards. I hope to get a video set up organised, so that I can show you my background stamping process. 

Anyway, I hope the explanation has helped a little :) That's all from me today, I can't believe it's nearly time to cook the tea, so I had better crack on and finish a couple of things here in the studio! I'll be back tomorrow with more to share, until then, thank you for stopping by today :)

Card Stock: White (Boyes) 
Ink: VersaFine Onyx Black, SU! Lucky Limeade & PTI Raspberry Fizz
Accessories: Temporary Adhesive, Gold EP
