[Uniko Studio Challenge] No. 14 - Clean & Simple

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:

'Clean & Simple'


This months colour inspiration contains a trio of my FAVE colours! Hopefully there is something in this color palette that will get your crafting mojo going. Feel free to use any or all of the colours.

Complimenting the colours this month, the theme is "Clean & Simple', which is a design of card which has clean lines, minimal elements and embellishments and areas of 'white' space. White space is an area of the card with no element or embellishment and doesn't necessarily have to be white! 

This is what I've come up with for the challenge...

I found a little time to sneak into the studio and play along with the new Freshly Made Sketches layout seen HERE and below as the starting point for my card. It was lovely to grab a broken half hour to make a card, I had the bat call half way through as the beans had woken for a feed, they must have known I had snuck off into the studio!

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

You have until October 14th 09:00 UK time, to link your card up below.
