well thank goodness we had some relief from the unrelenting heat this week. My poor garden has suffered though I am hoping that if we get some rain we might get some flowers as we slowly transfer into autumn.
This week at Just Add Ink we want you to Just Add a Colour Combo (from me). As it happens these colours are just perfect for a bouquet of flowers (and plenty of other things too - just check out the rest of the Just Add Ink design team for some great ideas!) Here are the colours.
And here is what I came up with.
Well you see before you my first go at no line watercoloring. I must admit while it was underway I wasn't sure it was going to look even half way decent. But somewhat miraculously it turned out ok! Adding the black really helped the colours to pop and a big banner can hide a multitude of sins (or dodgy colouring). I finished it off with clear wink of stella to the petals and gold wink of stella splatter and also accented the flower centres with a gold signo gel pen. Regardless of how it turned out it was a fun process and I was amazed at how different the flowers looked from their stamped version (is that a good thing?)
Do join us at Just Add Ink, we'd love to see what you do with the colours this week!
