JAI# 332 Just add a colour combo

Hello there,
well the family and I enjoyed a very relaxing few days away at the coast this week. Unfortunately I came back with a nasty head cold that means I am writing this in a very drippy state - ick! However, in contrast to my decidedly icky state of health we have a bold, bright challenge for you this week at Just Add Ink. This week Patrice wants you to Just Add a Colour Combo. Here are the colours.

Here's what I came up with.

My initial concept for this card was several flowers with the petals coloured but leaving the leaves uncoloured only to discover to my shock, horror and amazement ;) a gap in my stamp collection - yes really! The only current line flower image I have is Birthday Blooms, which I love, but didn't quite fit my original planned layout. In the end I had to adapt to what I had and I think it came up quite nice! Honestly, it's very hard to go wrong playing with water colouring!

The rest of the JAI DT have come up with lots of gorgeous colour inspiration so please do go check out their blogs.

    Your water coloured creations are divine, and the orange and yellow hues here are so beautiful and spring like. I love the touch of glimmer sweet. xxx
