Just Add Ink 232 Just add inspiration

Hello there,
my garden is slowly filling up with more colour every day as spring bulbs bloom and trees blossom. So the inspiration picture we have for the new challenge at Just Add Ink this week is very fitting. This week we want you to Just Add Inspiration.

The orange and pink was such a striking colour combo I knew I had to pull that out some how, and I tempered it with lots of white space.

So I started with a big bold flower set and rock and rolled some flowers to get the colour variation I was after. To add some subtle detail to the white background I embossed a texture into it. Then it was layer some flowers and foliage up into bunches and that's about it!

Hope you can join us for this inspiration challenge. For inspiration to get you started make sure to check out the rest of the JAI DT.
