Uniko - Flower Power #8 ....

... Morning! Have you started to make a list yet? Today is the last of the new stamps sets that form part of the upcoming Uniko release. I've made a very simple card in bold, bright colours:

Stamps: Uniko - Flower Power #8
Inks: Gina K - Passionate Pink; Stampin' Up! - Lemon Lime Twist, Pool Party; Memento - Grey Flannel
Dies: Hexagons - free with Craft Beautiful
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Uniko Stencil - Lattice; Gems; Copic Markers


There are lots of little stamps in this set that can be used to create a flower with stem and leaves, but I decided to focus on the bold, solid flower. I stamped it three times in bright pink and cut out the flowers with a hexagon die, I used Copic markers to edge each panel. I used the lattice stencil to create a subtle background and then adhered the hexagon panels in a line down the side. I added a tiny gem to the centre of each flower and finished the front with this lovely sentiment from the stamp set. I kept the inside very simple and only stamped another flower with some leaves.
