Friday Focus - Flower Power #5 - #8

Hello & Happy Friday.

Today I am back with another Friday Focus and continuing with the Flower Power Series. If you missed last week you can catch up HERE

This week my focus is on Flower Power #5 - #8 seen in the picture below...

And now let's see the new inspiration I've created.

Starting with Flower Power #5, which to me is like a modern and graphic poppy. I went for a duo of peach colours, Grapefruit and Sorbet paired with black making for a striking card.

I decided not to mask the flowers and let them overlap each other. I did however mask my border and then stamped one of the Background Builders Classics strips. My sentiment choice for this card is from Flower Power #6.

This leads me nicely onto Flower Power #6, a beautiful modern 2 step stamping rose. I am super excited that our Birthday Wishes clear stamp set is coming back in stock next week (Tuesday) and so I decided to pair the roses with one of my favourite sentiments from the set.

For the solid layer of the rose I used Ballet Slipper and the detail petals layer I used my favourite Honeysuckle. I did a little masking for the leaves and to layer the bottom two roses. But I let them overlap the sentiment.

My third card for today features the modern daisy flower from Flower Power #7 and I was reminiscing about making daisy chains as a child for this card! 

We're being treated to some wonderful sunshine and hot weather, so my colours reflected this with my choice of Honeysuckle, Buttercup and Oceanside. My sentiment choice is from Flower Power #5 which has a thank you theme.

Lastly, but no means least I have this cute design using Flower Power #8. I actually made this card quite a while ago, but forgot about it until it popped up in my photo memories! 

I love the Flower Power flowers for making clusters of flowers like I have here and even though Flower Power #8 doesn't (currently) have dies to match, this one is fairly easy to fussy cut. You could also use your scan and cut.

I finished the card with the Happy Birthday sentiment from Floral Vines and added enamel dots to the flower centres. 

I've absolutely loved these past two weeks, inking up these clear stamps and playing with different combinations and pairings. AND I can't wait to show you what's coming! I hope you will join us for the usual Uniko Countdown to Release fun.

I hope you've enjoyed this as much as I have and thank you for stopping by today.
