JAI #347 Colour

Hello there,
well thank goodness we had some relief from the unrelenting heat this week. My poor garden has suffered though I am hoping that if we get some rain we might get some flowers as we slowly transfer into autumn. 

This week at Just Add Ink we want you to Just Add a Colour Combo (from me). As it happens these colours are just perfect for a bouquet of flowers (and plenty of other things too - just check out the rest of the Just Add Ink design team for some great ideas!) Here are the colours.
And here is what I came up with.

 The inside.

Well you see before you my first go at no line watercoloring. I must admit while it was underway I wasn't sure it was going to look even half way decent. But somewhat miraculously it turned out ok! Adding the black really helped the colours to pop and a big banner can hide a multitude of sins (or dodgy colouring). I finished it off with clear wink of stella to the petals and gold wink of stella splatter and also accented the flower centres with a gold signo gel pen. Regardless of how it turned out it was a fun process and I was amazed at how different the flowers looked from their stamped version (is that a good thing?)

Do join us at Just Add Ink, we'd love to see what you do with the colours this week!

  1. Beautiful. Great job with the no line watercoloring. The flowers are so pretty. Love the gold accents.

  2. We got the rain our gardens needed! Mine too was suffering after the extreme heat of late. This is one of the most stunning cards out of your craft space (and there have been a few) - you did a fabulous job of no line colouring. Simply divine! xxx

  3. Incredible coloring Kim! I'm so impressed you did the inside too~you've inspired me!
