Uniko February Release - Passiflora

Welcome back to Day 4 of the Uniko February Release. Today we are introducing a floral set called Passiflora. We had one of these flowers in our garden in Scotland, that amazingly my mother grew from a seed. It's a climber with little tendrils and I can remember seeing it curling round the branches of the dead plum tree we had at the very back of the garden. It flowered every year and one year we had a fruit. It never really ripened though, but we enjoyed disecting it!





There are so many elements to this and you can build up layers by stamping. There's also an outline that you can colour in too. I've gone very much off the natural colours and built up my plant with bright colours from my Ranger Dye Ink sets that haven't seen much of the light of day for a long time. They are so bold though that they were perfect for this set.

I masked off a background area on the card base and used some yellow and orange distress inks with the Abstract Triangle stencil (see Tuesday's post) to create the background.

I then stamped all the separate elements of the flower and die cut them out. It was then just a case of building up the flower in the corner. I will admit I had to look at a picture just to check my memory was correct where all the different bits went!



A sentiment from the set in the bottom corner finished the card off nicely. I think this is my favourite from the release so far!

Tomorrow I'll be sharing the last new set and then tune in on release day on 11th for the blog hop and a fun way to win the entire release!

Happy Crafting Everyone!

Love your bold Pink passiflore over the soft stencilled triangles background ! It's like the flowers are climbing over a wall. Gorgeous showcase, Ruth for these gorgeous new products !

Very bold! That's what I imagine the 70's to be like (bold flowers everywhere) and HAHA for dissecting the fruit that never ripened ;) xx

Bold and bright! Back in the Netherlands, we had several of these in our garden, and we even got some edible fruits in some years. We discovered a passion flower in our current garden. The bear a lot of fruits each year, but none edible. All we get is an empty hull. But they look gorgeous anyway.

Another lovely card and another lovely product from this release. I love the mix of colour Ruth, the beautiful stencilled background gives just the right amount of interest behind the bright flowers. Gorgeous! Those Ranger inks seem to stamp really well, crisp and non patchy. I really need to look at getting some :)xx
