JAI #265 Just add Inspiration

Hello there,
goodness it really feels like the last week was hectic (and cold - I'm even turning into an ice block at work!!! - No joke!). So I am really glad it's the weekend - well almost ;) I do have something fun to warm things up though - a new Just Add Ink challenge. This week we want you to Just Add Inspiration and we have a great inspiration picture from Rochelle. You can pick one element, or several, the colours, patterns, objects from the inspiration picture to inspire your project. Here's the inspiration picture.

And here is what I made of it.

Creating this was very much a process of a adding a dash of this and a dash of that. I did have fun doing it (especially as it worked out) and have just realised retrospectively that I only (shock horror) used one stamp set!! 

Do join us for this fun inspiration challenge and don't forget to check out the rest of the DT's inspired projects.
