JAI #253 Just add inspiration

Hello there,
well we've come round to another Friday and that means it's time for a new challenge at Just Add Ink. This week we have a vibrant Just Add Inspiration challenge for you from Nikki. Here's the pic.

The colours definitely captured my attention! 

I loved the look of the ripples so wanted to capture that somehow and that led me to play around with the bokeh technique. I think butterflies and bokeh must be a perfect match! Of course I needed a little bit of glitz so I deconstructed some silver taffeta and loaded up my butterflies with rhinestones. This turned out pretty :) and since I have several pink loving friends it will go to a good home.

Hope you can join us this week - do check out the rest of the DT for some gorgeous projects!
