Uniko - All Occasion Sentiments #6 & TMR Colours ...

....  well, you've seen the peeks and now it's time to introduce the first of the new Uniko sets.  Today I'm introducing All Occasion Sentiments #6.  It's also the start of a new challenge at The Male Room.  Our challenge for the next couple of weeks is to use NEON colours on your masculine projects.  I think these sentiments make great guys cards, and I really like the open font for "THANKS", so I've coloured it and here's my card:

Stamps: Uniko - All Occasion Sentiments#6, Background Builders Round in Circles
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black; Hero Arts Neon - Blue, Green, Orange, Pink
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Kaisercraft DP - Happy Snaps; Copic Markers


I stamped the horizontal stripes and the grungy circles first, then added the word "thanks" above in black.  I stamped the word again on scrap paper, used my florescent Copic markers to colour each letter and fussy cut each letter and glued them to the card.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of green design paper and on the white panel stamped some more of the circle borders in neon green and blue.  I used the sketch from this week's CAS(E) this Sketch - CTS#140 for the layout.
