Uniko February Release - Intro Background Blocks Graffiti Texture

Here we are on Day 3 already and I think you can probably tell just how much fun I've been having with the Uniko February release so far. Today it is the turn of a quirky small background stamp called Graffiti Texture:



This has a grungy and mixed media look to it, and it's something I would never have picked up, but I had a lot of fun with it. It's great for texture - like the name suggests!


I thought with Valentine's Day coming up, I might as well get a little romantic with this set. I took the graffiti texture block and stamped it onto various shades of cardstock with some Versa Mark ink. I then took some clear embossing powder and heat set it. I had an MFT heart die in my stash and cut out one from each piece of stamped cardstock. 

I felt it would look too CAS on a card blank on its own, so I added some dry embossing with another MFT rectangle frame die I have that doesn't get much use, but was perfect for this - it's been used 4 other times now too!

Using my stamping tool, I then stamped the sentiment above and below where the heart would be and stamped in VersaFine Onyx Black.



I added a little detail on the inside with some of the smaller images from the So Much Clear Stamp Set (I get a lot of use from this little set, I love it!) and that was it. 



Not long to go now until release day on Monday 11th and a fabulous giveaway. Hope you're enjoying all the intros from all the team!

It's lovely, the texture adds a lot to the heart and it packs a punch with the black sentiments. And I'm proud of you for using those frames 5 times. That's a lot better than some of my dies haha!! Xx
