well this week at Just Add Ink we have a very bright inspirational photo for you brought to you by the lovely Jo Eades. Jo's suggested colours to go with the photo are Poppy Parade, Lucky Limeade, Pool Party and Melon Mambo...want to see ;)
And this is what I made of it.
I have got to admit I did struggle with this one, in fact this card was sooo close to being binned! But a bit of last minute readjusting and I came out with something I half like. The colours suggested tropical flowers to me, with a dash of aqua to cool it all down. So starting point - lots of flowers in Melon Mambo, the layers were made by stamping and then stamping again to get the lighter shade. The red flowers were one layer of Real Red and one of Poppy Parade. The layered flowers were arranged on an oval base, and dressed up with some Limeade greenery. I kept the background neutral, but added some texture using embossing. I really like the distressed effect you get by running DSP through an embossing folder - nice :) Finishing touches - lots of rhinestones and some Pool Party ribbon.
Hopefully that gives you the general idea - I promised myself I would get to bed
early earlier today so I need to get my weary body to bed otherwise my brain will be mush tomorrow!
