Colour Inkspiration #56




Hello there,
welcome to the Colour INKspiration 56 blog hop. If you are hopping your way around the blog hop, you will have arrived from Leonie Stuart's blog. If you are starting the hop here but would like to go to the start at the  Colour INKspiration challenge page over on Facebook, just click the link to be redirected and ask to join the group, that way you can load your projects directly to the Facebook group.

Here's the INKspiration picture for this week. This week it's filled with deep richly coloured florals featuring the colours Berry Burst, Blackberry Bliss, Melon Mambo and Garden Green. 


Here what I came up with.




This was all about the colouring for me (and just a little simple masking so I could get a continuous floral frame). Basically just ink and watercolour paper, then finished off with a stitched edge, a lick of Wink of Stella, and some sequins.

Hope you can join us and have some fun too! The challenge runs till Monday 10th June so there is plenty of time to join in. Next up, on the blog hop is Nicole Wilson with a lovely project. Enjoy!

Just Add Ink #457 Sketch



Hello there,
this week at Just Add Ink Narelle is asking us to Just Add a Sketch. It proved the perfect opportunity for me to ink up some new stamps. I decided to go with a more masculine theme, which is always a real challenge as it means I have to think harder how to add that extra level of detail but not too many! Here's the sketch.

Here's how it turned out.




Masculine cards are really about adding texture, so I used an embossing folder and also several stitched elements. I love adding a punch of colour to my backgrounds, so I decided to silhouette my light house against a pop of ombre blue colour created using SU! sponge brayers. I added a little extra depth to the light house using Smokey Slate blends, and some extra texture to the inked background by splattering with water droplets, white gouache splatter and Wink of Stella.

The Just Add Ink DT have some wonderful projects to show you so please go check them out and then come back and join in the challenge.

Thanks for visiting,
Kim
