UC - Colours ....

... Hello and Good Morning!  It's time to annouce our new challenge at Uniko.  This month we have a colour theme - AQUA, PINK & TURQUOISE - you probably recognise them as Uniko's colours!  I decided to make an Easter card - I certainly need a few for my stash:

Stamps: Uniko - Some Bunny, Fontiments Birthday; I Love Tea
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; Stampin' Up! - Pool Party, Pink Pirouette
Dies: Spellbinders - Square Sm (S4-128) #6, Lacey Squares (S4-295) #4
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Pink Petticoat DP - Vintage Rose; SU DP - Bermuda Bay; Wink of Stella - Clear


I adore this little bunny - he's perfect for an Easter card, but he's make a great baby card too!  I decided to paper piece him using three different papers.  I added some sparkle to the pink areas with a clear Wink of Stella brush.  The layout is based on the sketch from Mojo Monday - MOJO#435 (it's been ages since I played along with this challenge).  I used two of the papers to make the panels on the card.  I die cut the lacy square from the turquoise paper, cut a smaller white panel on which I stamped the sentiment and finished by added the bunny.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of design paper and on the white panel added a greeting and the pretty flowers from I Love Tea.

Do visit the Uniko blog to see more inspiration from the Design Team using our lovely colours.  I'm really looking forward to seeing your projects.

Now, this post has been scheduled, as I will be in Florida by the time the post goes live.  I'm attending Back to Back Art Retreat with Dina Wakely and Dyan Reaveley.  I've been looking forward to it so much.  Pictures and details later!!!  As well as all the wonderful creativity at the weekend, it's in Florida - temperatures expected to range from 22°C to 25°C (70°F to 77°F) with sunshine.  So much nicer than snow and freezing temps!  Bye for now!

I love the way you have used the same patterned papers on the bunny and the background, Deborah! That retreat sounds amazing - I hope you enjoy some creativity (and sunshine) this weekend:)

Okay, this little guy has replaced the photo that used to be in the crafter's dictionary for the word "adorable!" Your paper-piecing is fabulous, Deborah, and your design is inspirational for using up that pp we all hoard!! Enjoy your day! Hugs, Darnell
