UC - Summer .....

.... with a twist!!!  Hello, it's time for our August challenge at Uniko.  You don't have to use Uniko stamps on your card, but we'd love it if you did!  This month our theme is SUMMER and there's an optional twist of being inspired by our photo.  Here's my take:


Stamps: Uniko - Home Sweet Home, All Occasion Sentiments #1, Balloon Bash
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; Memento - Tuxedo Black; Stampin' Up! - Melon Mambo
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Kaisercraft DP - All That Glitters; Copic Markers; Wink of Stella - Clear



As you can see I've been inspired by the photo!  I think that little house is just so cute.  The layout of this card is based on last week's Freshly Made Sketch - FMS#199 which I didn't manage to play along with.  I cut a strip of design paper with pretty summer roses in the corner and adhered it to the bottom of the card.  I used my MISTI to position and stamp the sentiments - I do love this tool.  The house was stamped four times twice on design paper and twice on white card.  I added some colour to the roof and walls and then adhered the pretty scalloped paper.  I colour the window and door with Copic markers, cut them out and adhered them to the main house.  I finished the front with a touch of sparkle on the curtains, front door and the little heart on the roof.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of dark pink design paper and added a balloon and some stars to the white panel.  There's plenty of space for my message.
