JAI #331 Just add wings

Hello there,
crazy busy describes my life right now. I've mostly been busy with good things like a visit by my brother and his kids - that made for a noisy chaotic fun weekend. We took them off into the bush to show them emu's and even better a platypus! And since the annual flower festival was on we took them to that too. Today's challenge from Just Add Ink is also nature related. This week Nikki wants you to Just Add Wings. Lots of options here - birds, bees, planes, angels!

One of the very first sets I ordered from the new SU! annual catalogue was Best Birds which sadly has languished untouched on my shelf. But it languishes no longer, here's what I made with it (minus some gold sequins that I decided I just had to add once I'd taken the photo's - grrr!)

Basically this is all about watercolour. I just stamped up lots of bits and then coloured them using my ink pads and aqua painter. Pink and green was the first colour thought combination that came to mind so that's what I went with. Then I added some little touches of gold to finish it all off.

The rest of the team have lots of wonderful inspiration for you so don't forget to check them out too!

  1. This is so pretty, Kim! I love your mix of soft greens and pinks and your beautiful birds. Such a happy, Spring scene! xx

  2. I imagine your card looks perfectly finished with the addition of gold sequins. Loving your greens and pinks. A fave combo of mine. Hope things settle again soon (yeah right we both know that's not going to happen in a hurry). xxx
