Love You (but I'm saying goodbye)...

love you
Hey!

Happy Wednesday! Happy release day, Uniko Studio! Yup, the two new sets that my fellow DT and I have been sharing for the past two days (here and here) are available to purchase N.O.W! :)

Ooh and there's a deal on for today only:


As always, we're celebrating release day with a good ol' blog hop. You should have hopped along here from the Uniko Studio Blog so if you haven't then be sure to start out there.

I felt that I owed a bit more inky love to the new set, 'Always & Forever' seeing as I only shared a teeny heart and a partially inked sentiment from it yesterday! So here we have one large heart from the set. A total 180 from the masculine style projects of the past two days and super sweet in pink with sherbet-esque shades of colour. :)

tips and tricks
  • I used Distress Inks on the stripes of the design and this gave a more textured, uneven impression. I like to think that the fact it's not evenly stamped adds a bit of texture. :)
  • I debated for far too long on whether to attach the heart straight or at an angle. I let my crazy, care-free side win out on this one. I'm hoping it adds a bit of fun to the design.
  • I prefer to use pigment ink on large solid designs if I want an evenly inked impression. For a guaranteed good stamp, I like to place a sheet of foam underneath. 
That's just about everything from me today, but before you hop along to Amber I have some news to share. You've probably guessed already from the title of today's post, but I've made the decision to step down from the Uniko Studio DT. I've been with Uniko Studio since day one and I'd like to thank Bev for having me on board for so long. It's been fun and I've been lucky enough to be surrounded by a lovely DT. It's sometimes tough saying goodbye, but the real world outisde of this wonderful hobby is calling me to step up and if I keep burning the candle at both ends I'll be burnt out!

Now before we get a little too sentimental and tearful, I'm going to send you off to hop along to Amber. :)

No no no no NO you're not allowed to leave LOL!! Oh Aimes, it's been such an amazing time working with you on the team! It definitely won't be the same without you!! *sob* I will do my best to carry on though without breaking down!

This is a darling of a card and such a fitting one too. Have loved every single one of your DT cards and I hope I can keep pushing myself to get better even though my muse is departing! :-)

what a bitter"sweet" way to say goodbye, Duchess. You know I know how you feel...reorganizing priorities is necessary at times and will make you feel great in the long run! Especially if it means you'll still keep your passions alive! These colours against the white are divine, just like you :) ox
