Clock hands in disguise...


I hope you're having a super weekend! It's a little less white around here compared to last weekend but still kinda chilly (getting the most from my mittens I guess!)

Thank you so much for the positive and overwhelming response to Uniko Studio! I just knew that you'd love those two sets and as a head's up for those across the pond: shipping info is now on the website for ya!

As you've probably guessed, I've been very inspired by both sets: inking 'em up like there's no tomorrow! Today I'm sharing a couple of cards that make the most from the smaller images in the sets.

First up, a spot of masking using the clock hand from Extra Time:

Rainbow Birthday

This card features the 'Happy Birthday' sentiment from Time partially inked to set it out at a right angle. I then inked up the circular pivot point of the clock hand in the lower corner and finally, I applied a post-it note vertically up from the 'Happy', inked up that clock hand in various colours and stamped. When I removed the post-it note, the hands turned into decorative arrows - ta dah!

More fun with a clock hand features on this next card:

Hello Friend

Nope, there's not snowflakes or decorative mini-medallion stamp in the set Time, but a simple rotation of the decorative clock hand creates these cool patterns. I couldn't resist stamping them in grey - probably had something to do with the snow that was falling outside my window at the time :)

So there you have it: Clock hands disguised as decorative arrows and snowflakes/medallions! I hope you likey and if you do, be sure to keep up to date on the Uniko Studio Blog and Uniko Studio's Facebook Page and take a peeky at the store too of course!

Wishing you all a relaxing Sunday! I'm off to complete the chores I've been putting off, but the good news is that I have this week off to indulge in more inky time and catching up with everyone and everything in Blogland...yay!

Catch ya later!
