this week the challenge at Just Add Ink is to Just Add Inspiration. The lovely photo Nikki picked made me think back to this past Christmas when my Mum was talking about her childhood on a farm in Europe. Both conquered up images of green fields waving with grasses and bright yellow flowers.
And here is what I made of it.
My first thought was to emboss the flowers and then watercolour over to get an emboss resist effect. I was aiming for a very earthy, natural feel and I think this worked with that. On the inside I stamped them and then blurred out the colour a little. I really liked how both turned out and I think Mum will too!
Hope you can join us - and don't forget to check out the rest of the DT for some wonderful inspiration!
