well it was another hectic week here. I was juggling extra hours at work to cover colleagues travelling, we had a big morning at the kids school for their annual learning journey, I had a headache, there was beautiful spring sunshine and then MORE rain. How's that for a potted summary!
In a midst of all of that I grabbed a few precious minutes to put together a card for this weeks Just Add Ink challenge. This week we have a Just Add Inspiration challenge from Di filled with spring colours. Here's the picture.
I just couldn't resist I had to pull the perfect stamp out of my non-SU! stash - because it was a bunch of tulips! Here's how it turned out.
I started by colouring my tulips with the colours from the inspiration picture. Originally I had planned to have a white background for them but in the end the colours really popped against the dark gray so that's what I went with. So it didn't compete with the tulips I kept the background monochromatic. I also couldn't resist adding some sequins. I added just a few between the two stamped jar layers using a thin strip of double side tape around the edge to seal them in.
Hope you can join us this week. To play along just pick the bits that inspire you - the colours, image or patterns from the inspiration pic and don't forget to stop past the blogs of the rest of the DT!
