DT Inspiration - In Paradise

Hi there, it's Sarah P here just popping in with a little inspiration as I'm sat here wishfully hoping Summer will arrive soon. What better way to get in the mood than dig out the Paradise sets, from Uniko as they simply shout 'Sunshine'

I've coincided this post with a challenge entry post to CAS Colours & Sketches, over on my blog HERE which also uses these sets with a completely different look!

One of my Aunties lives in California and will be moving house this week so I created this card for her and the family. The new address certainly sounds like paradise to me so this set worked a treat. I've also used one of the new stencils by Funky Fossil Designs, sold HERE, to create a subtle backdrop which I think works perfectly for this little scene.

I water-coloured the toucan using Zig Clear Brush Pens, fuzzy cut him and created a framed circle to showcase him, popped up on 3d foam. The 'Paradise is wherever you make it' sentiment is from the same set with the 'New Home' taken from the Simply Said range of sentiment stamps. 

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you feel inspired to pull out some of your older Uniko sets and bring them back into the spotlight.
