well this week at Just Add Ink we have an inspiration photo for you - they're always challenging but also a wonderful kick start to creativity and individual inspiration. Want to see? Here you go.
A couple of things really grabbed my attention about this photo, firstly the colours, that big expanse of blue, the bright pink of the flowers, and the green of the foliage and shutters. The end result - well here it is.
You might be wondering where that flower is from - well its a sneak peek from a new set coming up in our new catalogue, its designed to work with buttons, and it does! After seeing the inspiration pic I felt like I wanted to have flowers cascading down the right side and somehow a scalloped circle card seem to suit that idea. So I cut a scalloped circle Rose Red base, a white mat and then a Soft Sky top layer (this was just the right shade - lighter than Baja). I stamped and embossed the fab super sized sentiment, with Elegant Eggplant and versamark. Then stamped lots of flowers and whenever I could grab a momment cut lots of layers out. Once that was done I layered them all up with dimensionals, and of course added buttons! Final touch was to add some sprigs of greenery. The inside I finished off to match with more layered flowers.
Well thanks for visiting, hope you are inspired this week and play along with the challenge.
