Uniko's 6th Birthday!

Hello!

We are hopping along today for Uniko's 6th birthday - Bev has grown this fab stamp company single handedly over that period in addition to having lively twin toddlers to keep her busy :)  I love Bev's design style and the fact that she has recently added stencils to the mix.....I am sure that Uniko will continue to go from strength to strength over the coming years.

Anyway, to my card:


No birthday would be complete without cake and here I have used the fab Celebrate with Cake set that Uniko released in 2016.  Here I used the no lines watercolouring technique to create a soft effect.  The string of stars from Seeing Stars adds some background interest and the card is completed with a sentiment from Organic Wishes.

I also made a card using the same colours but a slightly different look:


I stamped the cupcake and added some shading with pencils and highlights with white pen before masking it and adding the stream of stars from Reach for the Stars on either side.  I love the way that the sentiment from the set fits around the cake!

I hope you enjoy the birthday hop :)
